  • Texas Part 2: XPEL 375

    With Dixon starting on pole, what are the odds there are no passes for the lead outside pit stops...

    No sense beating a dead horse. Track does allow for any racing but makes for a hell of a parade

      You mean just like the first two races, or almost any road/street race, or almost any IndyCar race the last several years.

        Barring someone wadding it up in front of Dixon or a bad pit stop, he runs away with this one, too. McLaughlin's run was nice, but part of it was Dixie trying not to involve himself too much with lapped traffic.

        Or, maybe they're running 4 grooves by lap 50 and there are 12 passes for the lead, stunning pit strategy and insane amounts of contested positions thru-out the field. 😖

          Anybody know why this race is 75km longer than the one yesterday?

              Why can't IndyCar do ANYTHING to try to make the race more interesting? Invert the field, invert the top ten or even the top five. Can't even qualify today. Their complete lack of ANY attempt to improve their oval package the last several years is total disgrace. And I've seen nothing from RP to make me hopeful it will ever improve until Indy is the only oval they race on. And I suspect half the paddock would like them to put a chicane in the backstretch and the other half would like the 500 to be run on the road course.

                Indycar racing, world's fastest parade! Even F1 can't touch Indycar's oval parade

                  The parade isn't just on ovals. Despite push to pass and alternate tires, the first two races were just like last night, just at a much slower speed. The new logo for IndyCar should be a double yellow line; the entire track is a no passing zone.

                    Guessing it was done to look like there's greater separation between the 2 races. All the extra 36 laps will do is add another pit stop.

                        Huh? There was plenty of passing at Barber and St. Pete. Maybe not for the lead but everywhere else. There was maybe 5 or 6 last night.

                          The issue at Texas is more about the track compound applied for NASCAR that they cannot get to come off. It has created a one groove race track. The drivers do not risk going high and then the marbles gather in that outside lane and it becomes impossible to drive in.
