  • post #92 tracker updated

    Sounds like only Hanley and O' Ward need the track cleared for them to run.

    By the way is the Saturday practice replacing Monday?
    Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:

      I wonder if they might get to 232 for qualifying this year once they get the boost...i know non-tow is around 224-225 right now, but I have to think these new aero pieces are definitely picking up the pace.

        The aero pieces and low temps are likely picking up the pace with a tow, as they are able to both track and follow better through the corners plus, have more power. No tow speeds are mostly in the 222-224. I think qualifying speeds will completely depend on the temps. I would love to see today's weather repeat for this weekend.

        • Did anyone who saw Arie's run in 1996 think that track record would stand for 23 years and possibly all of time?

            I knew it would be a few years with the new NA engines being introduced the next year but in no way thought it would be 23 years and counting.

              You mean the Sunday late afternoon practice? Sort of. But there's still a two-hour session Monday.
              No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

                • Why are the flags at Half-Staff?
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in one pretty and well preserved piece, but to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out and defiantly shouting "Wow, what a ride!!!". :D

                  • Sounds like everyone is cleared except O' Ward, who will go out at 10:20 tomorrow

                              I appreciated the close-up shot they had of Veach's car as they are starting to experiment with the wickers on the front wing.

                              • Caution for Colton Herta, spun after exiting the pits entering the backstretch. Car appears to be okay, but the spin caused him to have flat tires
