Must have been trimmed. I just finished watching el numero dos, and it is a very worthy successor. Thoroughly enjoyable, and it did a wonderful job of capturing much of the tension and emotion of last year's Le Mans. I was genuinely moved.
most exciting 500 in a while I think. I was really hoping to see Sato win. I can't decide what how I feel about the crash, whether it was just Sato getting into the dirt on the white line, or if Dario came down and got his front end lose. I need to go back and watch it.
Dario intentionally blocked and pinched him down, even though Sato had the position going into the corner. Dario didn't give any space until Sato was already spinning. I've seen penalties for less than that, but Dario always gets his way.
At first I thought it was just a defensive move and Sato didn't handle it well, but after watching it again it was a fairly dirty pinch. As good as Franchitti is and as much as I rooted for him in years past, I've lost just about all respect for him the last couple seasons.
I will say this, watching the 500 got me really excited about indy racing, its one of the few I actually get to watch each year and seeing the larger field and some engine manufacturer variety was nice. Might pickup some of the Texas Motorspeedway tickets and watch those races.
Oh, those cars have been seized and may not race. A driver was upset about being replaced on the team, so he went to court. He wants to race at Le Mans, and it looks like he's of the mindset that they can't race if he can't race.
I had heard that at Sebring. There was a film crew at Turn 10 Saturday morning, and I got to be in a shot. I waved that flag like a champ, and Marino was probably thinking "wtf? retard..." as he went by.
Anyone watching the Indycar race in Detroit? Massive strips of road sealer got pulled out of the track and they've been trying to fix it for the past 2 hours. It's like the 2010 Daytona 500 all over again.
