    With Rusty retiring I'm undecided right now. It's between Jamie McMurray and Carl Edwards, I may just end up rooting for both of them.

    Mr brother is at that race. He works on/drives in prerunners for Terrible Herbst so he gets to go to pretty much whatever race he likes out there.

    Well, at least the "sand yankee" din't win again and #99 was third. Not a bad day I suppose. :cheers:

    To be at Indy and watch 900+hp open wheel racers without some rediculous juvenile attitudes towards other drivers is really a treat. Nothing like it.

    No drafting, no bumping, no NOTHING but pure and simple driving skills. If you are a race fan, IRL (or Form 1 for that matter) is about as pure as it gets... Just my opine of course and I expect some comments. Anyone who has been to indianapolis for the race every year can vouch for me.. I hope??

    Only because 1 out of 55 can speak english, they all speak other languages, so even when they do get tudish' noone can understand what their sayin.. so ya jus nod, smile and wave.. and then under yer breath.. "what a smug :ass: he is"


    But i know what your sayin rat, you are right on the ball for sure... To be able to handle those cars at that speed, and actually turn.. scares me jus to watch it..

    Really.. 1 out of 55?? I have been to indy 8 of the last 10 years and I dont remember 98% foriegners in the race.

    I have a lot of respect for the stock-car racers but it is, in a word, UNBELIEVABLE to see those indy cars run.... guess I'm not too much of a nascar fan, but I am a racing fan, no doubt.

    Indy is a different world and I do remember (and was present) for the first brickyard race. I also remeber Stan Fox spinning out in turn one at indy and it took 20MIN to get the cars lined up again.... awsome day for me! Our seats are midway up in turn 4 btw....

    I guess it might be different for Indy? Ive only watched a couple of the openwheel races, and those that I have I couldnt even begin to try and pronounce their names.. Its been a while since I watched them...

    Im sure it is unbelieveable, i love nascar, however, it was awesome to watch the couple of open wheel races, it was amazing to see them turn the corners going as fast as they were..

    It literally takes your breath away to see straightaway speeds of 230 or better...

    Listen, I can see the allure of nascar and I dont doubt anyones allegience to the sport. I guess I feel left out (????) cause i'm not a fan. I sure wish things woulda turned out better for IRL. I tried watching the nascar race today and couldnt get into it at all. Guess I should pick a driver and root for him... or a team??.. or an owner??? what the heck? how the heck do I decide to get into this deal????

    rat, Todays race was one of the more uneventful races you will ever watch. Not a good sampling of what to expect.

    As far as the Indy cars not bumping and drafting. They DO draft. But you ever see what an open wheel car does when wheels get together? :bangin: That might have something to do with the lack of contact!
