    Rain may be in the forecast...can't say it wouldn't look a little odd watching someone run at IMS in the rain!

    Helio, Rossi, Newgarden, RHR fail to advance even to the top 12. Dixon and three guys who have a combined 22 starts in the front two rows. First pole for a Swede since Kenny Brack in 2002.

    INDY ! Finally. I just love seeing the track on screen . Even though
    I went to the first F1 race at the track, I still cant get use to them going
    backwards down the front. It just seems wrong. My picks are RosenQ,Harvey,Power.
    I kinda wish I woulda picked Pag because of the rain chances. But oh well,
    its done. Can't wait and no rain delays !

    Off Topic: Formula E today also if you need a Monaco fix. 11:30 a.m. EST - FS1

    Got myself DAZN for free for the month of may:)
    Unfortunately no pre-race and presumably no original commentary.

    Let's see if they can get through turn 1 for a change.

    I believe the German commentator thinks that ice hockey player is actually driving that car...

    There's been worse here but that's a major points blow for Rossi.

    Yeah, that's multiple laps. This just became a practice session.

    I just love seeing this place, even if it's just the road course with almost empty stands.
    Can't wait for the 500!

    And now he just realized Harvey is not on primary tires.

    Weird place to crash. Don't think I've seen someone just lose it mid-race there before.

    Good reminder of Ericssons F1 days:rolleyes:
    Also interesting to see a driver wearing glasses during the race.

    The power of spectacle. Same cars, same drivers, same track; nobody there. Tells me a lot about the 'fans' that will be there in two weeks. :rolleyes:

    Well I did not want to hear that about one of my picks - Mike Shank said
    "his driver Jack Harvey has never driven in the rain". Ughh. Fingers crossed
    but expectations low. This is going to get interesting. Pit boys need to be on "A" game.

    Hmm. It'll be interesting to see how much ground these guys 17th-22nd can make up on fresh reds before the rain comes.

    He has never driven an IndyCar in the rain.
    I think he won a GP3 race in the rain a couple of years ago.

    Just not in an Indy car I don't think. I think he had to have in Europe and Lights at some point.

    What a disaster of a race for Andretti. Rossi, RHR, Herta if you want to count the alliance car...

    I think every race fan would rather go to the 500 than to the Grand Prix.

    What I can't understand is when people purchase Sunday tickets for a motocycle Grand Prix event and only attend the MotoGP race. They miss a lot of action

    I'm finally convinced the German commentator must be blind. He's even worse than our F1 guys and that means a lot.

    That's the good seat, high up under the over hang at the last corner
    with a good view of the pit entrance and front straight.

    Someone's gonna have a massive crash with slicks in the wet in the next 10 minutes.

    I'm hoping they can avoid that, but it's dicey and interesting out there.
