It helps to be named Al when winning the LBGP.

That's the best thing to come out of this year's F1 so far.

Heartfelt thank you to y'all for the Sunday smiles.

 

Need a big rest after this epic weekend of 10+ big races. Cheers, love and many Rossi-esque victories this coming week. <3

not exciting race for Indycar. kudos to Rossi for a dominating drive.

 

apologies for picking colton and thereby becoming my consecutive fantasy last place finisher.

I enjoyed the race despite the commercials :)

Congratulations to Rossi and a tip of my hat to Rahal for the way he handled the post race interview on what was a controversial (and erroneous?) call.

After further review, even Tracy and the other booth pundits agreed with the call. Rahal did a pruett fade after the initial incident which may have contributed to the call.

Yep. As far as I can tell the only thing they could have gotten him on was the 'indecisiveness' farther down the straight. The first move was clean as could be.

IndyCar and Formula E both making a big deal abut their variety of winners. And rightly so! Both have had this happen with their races so far this season. Mega stuff.

One in the bush. That's the perfect way to end a long, hard weekend.

Did I miss it or did they not show a replay of that in any race recap segments after I started watching?

I don't think there was any replay. I think the camera at the fountain had panned right to catch the Pigot/Leist incident.

Wow, I got that all mixed up. Pigot/Veach/Leist happened behind and as a consequence of Ericsson/Harvey. Ericsson/Harvey could be seen from Veach's nose cam.

I've seen lap 1, 30 and 55 before I woke up again and went to bed at ~0.15 AM.

Personally, I think they should make this a permanent part of the landscaping - it nicely sets off the dolphins, and makes for a tasteful monochromatic scheme with the floral elements.

They really couldn't have picked a nicer livery for the occasion. (Fuchsia?)

Given that the highlights video is basically "Dixon's race in three minutes", the previous page makes a bit more sense. I suppose tracks like this inevitably create either chaos or boredom, with a fine line separating the two. :p

 

Now if Indycar can stop spoiling the results of the race in their video thumbnails that'd be great. :down:

There's also an Extended Highlights video for the race on "Motorsports on NBC" on YouTube which is around 10 minutes long.

If the whole point of the one-off ‘Acura’ branding was publicity, then they’re going to get way more out of this than they would’ve with the inevitable anonymous 9th place finish. :lol:

That's otherwise known as the Forza Motorsport AI Route through that corner.

That explains much.  Let's hope that as Meyer-Shank Racing continues to grow, they'll be able to invest in a driving simulator NOT based on a Forza Motorsport platform to prepare Jack for future races.   ;)

 

Btw, I missed Hand Binley this race!  :cry:

IndyCat shows his pals that Dixon had plenty of room.
