Thank you IndyCar for saving me from the terribleness of Eurovision. Much appreciated.

Time for the "What fate will befall Will Power" sweepstakes!

 

What will happen to him this time?

 

I'm thinking hit the wall on the oval section.

Watching the local coverage is painful. They are trying to drum up excitement for the race a bit too hard.

 

A reporter just said there was a "pretty good crowd along the front straight." It looks like there may be 100 people. There are definitely more on the track than in those stands.

Helio for the win I think. Would love to be Hawksworth but that's unlikely.

I noticed in Long Beach that Indycar have switched to start lights that are much more like the F1 system compared to the odd light matrix thing they tried last year.

Yay Indycar! Let's go!

 

For what it's worth I think Power will have a gearbox failure.

   I say run in to the back of someone and damage the chassis just badly enough to slow his pace

After that long run on that front straight    that 1st turn looks way too sharp   and inviting  for a  mass crash  or  multiple run offs
