Re: Any Indy 500 predictions?

Sato has had the reputation as an over aggersive driver since his F1 days. I believe he had it won if he would have drafted behind Franchitti coming to the lone and make his move coming out of three.

I wonder if Letterman will still have Franchitti on his show? :P

Re: Any Indy 500 predictions?

well, I picked William Power and RHR, but as always rooting for the 14 to win...boy was he moving up too 27th to 4th. sped on pit road, effed up his front wing on that stop, lost the handle on his machine. AJ seems to like this kid more than he did Vitor...hope they get something going soon

Re: Any Indy 500 predictions?

overall, thought it was a pretty good race. This is the one race I actually stop what I'm doing to watch...otherwise I listen to the races on the radio (both indycar & nascar) while working

Re: Any Indy 500 predictions?

there were many positives about the race, new car ran great, there was some crazy side by side racing, plus we didnt have to hear how awesome danica was cuz she led a lap under caution or by fuel mileage

Re: Any Indy 500 predictions?

one of these years Wolf, I'm gonna hit all 3 legendary USAC races the week of the 500. Races that were won by drivers like Foyt, P Jones, Andretti, the Unsers, etc while also getting their cars ready for the 500 (back in the days when racers rented cots from the track to sleep on). 2 are on dirt, and the 1 is on pavement the night before the 500. Then I'm going back to the 500 to top off the week (I used to go every year).

I was hoping Bryan Clauson would have a better trip, hopefully he secures a ride for next year. He's a helluva USAC driver, and he's built his own midgets for years. Would love to see a dirt racer in VL again

Re: Any Indy 500 predictions?

I got to meet Bryan Clauson when he raced USAC when they came to a local dirt track. He was so cool we became facebook buddies 8-) .

Really good dirt driver, he had a development deal with Ganassi and was suppose to run fulltime nationwide in 2008. In his first plate race he finished sixth at Daytona in Feb and got a top five at Kentucky too. But he didn't have the sponsorship. Then when Ganassi merged with DEI they didn't take him with him.

I hope he can get a fulltime ride in the IRL series. He has a lot of talent. The issue with Bryan is that he either wins or he wrecks. He needs to dial it back a bit.

Andretti's teams was running strong because Chevrolet was better engine than Honda.. Ganassi was struggling with Honda.. After Indianapolis Ganassi is back and Andretti's teams is struggling again..
