    If you don't like it, you have the freedom to turn it to "Say Yes to the Dress." I for one like this race and it was a nice pass.

      No worries, mate, there's a nice restrictor-plate oval race coming up after this. You'll love it.

          Excellent race with zero passes in the first stint?

            Not your cup of tea, obviously.

            I know it, you know it. We all know it.

              That's one solution.

                  It's the truth.. without a yellow the race has been over for awhile

                      Save for a couple of moments, very dull. And predictable at the front (Penske, Ganassi, Penske, Ganassi). Not an exciting product to start your season. And nothing memorable that anyone will remember 2 days from now.

                      And the lack of yellows made it worse (as usual). Why anyone roots for races to be green from flag-to-flag is beyond me. Sorry but all green flag racing (especially on a road or street course) makes for a coma-inducing product.

                      Won't even speak of the 15 minutes of dead air, which you cannot defend.

                      But I'm sure it will still garner a 12 on a 10 point scale on the very scientific TF "Rate The Race" poll.

                        No it will suck too.

                        Major league racing in this country is not good right now.

                          It will have the top oval racers competing at the highest level with a good crowd at a great track.

                            Next time you marvel at how close everyone is in practice and in qualifying, keep in mind that spec cars that are all going the same speed give or take a tenth here or there don't pass each other that much.

                            But I know, I know, we can open up the rule book or Penske and Ganassi will dominate.

                              I'm still wondering what the hell "Push To Pass" actually does. I see it doing very little to enhance anything. Its just used to block on a tight one-lane course. Other then that, the only way anyone gets passed is if someone is trying to soldier it to the next pitstop low on fuel and they have to back off. Or maybe on a restart. Which when you only have 1 yellow, will lead to a whole lot of nothing going on.

                              But yes we can't dare open anything up. We gotta keep Roger and Chipper and Mike Andretti happy and winning almost every pole and every race. Its just that competitive.
