It was an interesting and entertaining race; I'll give it that. Glad to see Herta get the win. I'm hoping he makes it to F1. I'm always amazed that, as a field, IndyCar drivers can't seem to do more than a lap or two without someone spinning/off course on a wet track.
Although it is hard to stay on a wet track on slicks. :wink:

Herta's drift was unreal
Held it, then passed the leader !

The strategy to stay on slicks, late, didn't pan out so well. Very difficult and changing conditions = entertainment. :rockon:

Damn, Scott Dixon in the qualifiers for Indy. Blazing speed and he gets pole, again for a record breaking 6th time. Ave speed over 234 mph!

What a race yesterday. My favorite was winning the entire time, and I was really looking forward to the finish - then, Scott Dixon - got a penalty in the pits. Damn :banghead: :rtfm:
At least a Ganasssi teammate won. Chip is a hometown favorite - he is from here and lives here in the Pittsburgh region.

Anyway, quite the race.

Yes, Dixon pretty much dominated, and it was his race to lose....and he did.
It was a typical Indy 500, anything can happen.
Looked like for sure Palou would finish well again, or Veekay, one of the youngsters. But O'Ward took care of that.
Not crazy about the red flag at the end with them shutting off the cars. I thought we might see more of how Will Power got screwed last year with the overheated electronics. But it did make for a better show at the end.
Good to see the stands filled again. It wasn't like that even just before the pandemic. But it looks like IndyCar is gaining popularity back.

Indy cars at Road America this weekend. Not really much of an Indy car fan, but I love RA. Such a long, fast track.

It was a good race. That track sure is narrow though. Passing was tricky for these indy cars.

And... both Haas cars in the points.

Wow. That's off to a flying start... :rockon:
