Watching the Indy race

I think I would want to use the high line. Watching all the wrecks I have seen in recent years. Figured if there was problems you would get the wall before getting air & going over the wall.

Yep you would find me on the high line LOL

Re: Watching the Indy race

Man everytime I watch an INDY car racing something goes wrong on Simona car. What Danica left & the team decided they can turn to $hit now that they are the only woman in the field?

Re: Watching the Indy race

Wow! Will Power just wrecked.
I think as long as RHR finishes he will come from behind to become the champion.
Unbelievable.

Re: Watching the Indy race

Hey is Will Power like the Kyle Busch of Indy cars?
Wins a lot & gets DNFs? Seems like anytime I do tune in he is either competing for a win or something is happening to him.

Re: Watching the Indy race

But RHR keeps losing spots and they're working on Power's car to try to get him back out. Problem is was his engine hurt...

Re: Watching the Indy race

will that one position Will Powers team got him be the difference to win the championship?
He would have been behind right now, but if things stay the same he is one single point to the good.
Kudos to the team.

Re: Watching the Indy race

Ryan has to finish 5th or better for the championship, but TK is running him down. Power can't get any more spots so he has to wait and see what happens.

Whoa, right now it's Ryan's if he can keep his position, but I think TK might get him.

BTW, TK is my favorite

Re: Watching the Indy race

Dang, my boy just crashed.

This is Ryan's championship to lose now. That boy has driven his heart out tonight so I hope he gets it. I'm not a fan of Will Power.

Good for Ryan! I didn't realize he's married to Robby Gordon's sister.

My other fav Graham finished 6th :mrgreen:

Ooo la la, that Ed Carpenter is a little cutie :mrgreen:

that was an interesting finish. Side by side for 4th & 5th with Castroneves closing fast with fresh tires. If there wasnt a wreck he could have finished 4th to 6th.
Man that had to be nerve racking. Congrats & Good job Ryan.

I like Power. But that made me LOL.

Power just struggles on the ovals. Unlike Kyle he didn't choke. He just hasn't gotten a hold on them. That is now three seasons in a row that Power has lost the title in the final race because he had wrecked.

That was a good race. After Power wrecked out the intensity went up because that gave Hunter Reay a better chance to win.

Ed Carpenter getting his second career win is big too. For his own team at that. American wins the race and the championship. The last time an American won the championship in Indycars was in 2006 with Sam Hornish Jr.

Congrats to Ryan Hunter Reay he was able to rise to the occasion.

Re: Watching the Indy race

RHR did a nice job, but boy did he struggle to mak into the top 5, he deserves the championship, so kudos to him, and congrats to Michael Andretti, there is life after D.P.
