  • McCune's test vs. KY qual speeds

    How many noticed how much faster Sarah McCune's KY test speeds were than the qual speeds at KY? And she does not have a sponsor?

    You're right. She was over 2 mph faster than Taylor's pole speed. Maybe Sam Schmidt should consider letting Erwin go and pick her up.
    If I were Ed Carpenter and you were a lady...

      For some reason, probably high humidity, everyone went slower than their test times. Taylor did 185mph in his test and some of the teams were changing gears mid practice because their top gears were too long for the conditions.
      The officials designated the 1'' wicker for this race which was far too much. It is possible to run flat round Kentucky with no wicker at all! Speeds would then have been around the 190 mark.
      Which is at least where the IPS should be running on this kind of oval.
