Hope you're healing up well!Sorry I couldn't add to the conversation more. I fell asleep about 25 laps into the race.
Had surgery this week and I'm really sore, tired and worn out-staying up all nights from the pain.
But I'll see ya in St. Petersburg.
Have a great winter, guys. Thanks for all the great input that you all give.
I think P2P is a nice alternative. If Simon hadn't been all over the button in the first 60 laps, he might have had something for Dixie. On the other hand, if he'd been more conservative with it, he might not have caught Scott at all. Pros and cons.I will say this sport needs DRS like F1. Dixon being able to hold of Pagenaud was a bad look
Another vote for P2P here. It's better to have something that's incorporated as another strategy piece than something where you can just sail by someone uncontested IMO - a reason why a lot of modern F1 overtakes are not very inspiring or memorable. Indy Lights changed a season or two ago to using P2P in the DRS manner where you have to be within X seconds of someone to use it and for the life of me I can't figure out why or if anyone in the series feels it's really been a positive change.I think P2P is a nice alternative.

Power, who came from seventh and almost pulled off his third win in the last four races, was full of praise afterwards for Herta and the show. “That kid kid going to be handful for along time,” said the Team Penske veteran. “But damn, man, that was really fun out there today, sliding around and leaning on each other.
“But, I’m begging the Laguna management — DO NOT repave this track. It will ruin the racing and you cannot ask for anything better than we had today.”
Pagenaud echoed his teammate’s plea. “Absolutely, do not repave this place — leave it as it is. The track is absolutely perfect. It creates the perfect racing because there’s tire degradation. The last corner is a hairpin and you’re going into a double left-hander and it allows you to run two lanes because the inside is so used up. It opens up opportunities for an inside and outside line like you saw with me and (Alexander) Rossi and Dixon. Tire deg always creates great racing because it differentiates aggressive cars and setup vs. more conservative like we had.”
