    Probably not popular with most of you, but this is what I am pulling for.

    Which implies you, like I, hope to watch it after work tomorrow.

    I should have saved last night's Indy race for this afternoon instead of watching it over breakfast.

    It's going to be one of those days where the jet driers get about halfway finished and then the rain starts again.

    PGA has three tied for the lead and three more one stroke back. That looks like a good alternative.

    No one there for the race today will be around that late for a Monday race.

    Crossing my fingers we get some racing today! Looks like just some light rain but we all know that even the lightest of showers will wash away the track.

    Wished they were would just call it. We decided not to come up today, but will tomorrow if they race. Since we are not coming it will probably not rain from green to checker.

    Hourly forecast so far is 40-50% rain all afternoon. Raining steady here on the Lake Michigan shoreline.

    Small window between 3 to 5 pm where it will be cloudy, but it will pick up around 6 pm.

    I doubt I'll be able to watch this race, especially being a night shift guy if it happens at 5pm on Monday, I have to be to work at 6pm.

    Yeah it may open up. No point in watching the forecast, just watch the radar

    Yep, the forecast pretty much changes by the minute depending on what the radar is doing.

    Which currently shows a long band running N-S, but it just might slide west of the track. Anyone remember how long it takes to dry this place?

    I think both DW and MW are awesome.

    Their characters on FOX are cringeworthy and near unbearable.

    Yeah it’s losing moisture as it moves north and the east wind is drying the air out. I’m almost to the track and feel very confident in it running completely

    I can put up with it personally. I can see where they might can be annoying. But I’m normally let’s say, not sober during the races so it’s easy to deal with them.

    Watch them try that on a Monday postponed race in the next couple years... it’ll be the prettiest day all Monday morning and afternoon and then late showers force them to miss the Monday running...

    Obviously they want majority of people to race over to the track after work. It still works against a person who has traveled hours to get to the race. They’re making calls that benefit “a fan” that lives 30 minutes away... not a fan that drove 2+ hours.

    Let me get with 2019... the calls don’t benefit the fan who “Uber’d” 2 or more hours...

    They're making the call that benefits TV. The fans in the stands have nothing to do with it.
