Just got home in time. Sprint Cup on the tube and IndyCar on the computer.

The question that naturally occurs is, who do I listen to?

Why, Andrew Hope's SONG! OF! THE! RACE!

London Symphony Orchestra eh? We don't take kindly to your sort round here.

While we're on Neil Jung though...

Not to mention the revelation that anger can really motivate you to become successful is the kind of insight you can only really get from a former racing driver.

Motorcycles can race everywhere though. You'd expect this to be more like Mid-Ohio for an Indycar.

Dixon was about 2 seconds back, and his own stop wasn't all that fast.

I think powerful bikes can be a good predictor. Superbikes are still a snooze at Sonoma.

They came in pretty much nose to tail because Kimball nearly ran over Beatriz on his in-lap.

E.J. I think you should start attacking now.

Looks like everyone is on a 3-stop apart from Power (who's trying to stretch his fuel for 2 stops).
