Commentary team think they're on the Autosport forum?  Bit of a spat there.

No issues mate, just that the commentators are dull and disheartening always needing to remind us what Charlie's ailment is. It's the same thing with Hinchcliffe's mayor thing.

ah right apologies i see where your coming from, i have a 4 year old who has recently been diagnosed with diabetes, not a nice condition to say the3 least, and agree on that whole mayor thing.

The spirit of Piquet Jr. from last week's Mid-Ohio NNS is strong with us today.

Sorry to hear that mate. It was not a jab at the circumstances just a jab to the less than able 'commentators' :D

Except that Nascar doesn't penalise for contact  99% of the time.

Holy cow, Marco's first victory in 06.  He really hasn't lived up to that potential.  Still seems like a kid though.

Well he's the latest to get a drive-through.. he was only up front because he hadn't pitted (like Carpenter).

Totally unnecessary, Jakes' car isn't on the track. Looks like Barfield is in "ALMS time-wasting yellows" mode.

This is just fail.  Full course yellow for a car down an escape road.  They need to think more about this.

I'm beginning to look forward to the aerokits.  Races like this are the downside of having 24 cars running within a second of each other.

No, that's because of constant restarts. You might want to check the gaps in race results.

Dixon, Power, Franchitti are on the same strategy. Wilson and Carpenter are staying out longer.

Yes, yellows breed yellows, but Viso and Saavedra thinking they have a chance to win breeds yellows too. :yawnface:
