Top four drivers all control their own fate with two races to go, consecutive wins would do it for any of them. I don’t expect that, but it shows how tight this really is.With 2 races left : Portland and Leguna Seca
1 - Power - 482 points - Penske
2 - Newgarden - 479 Points - Penske
3- Dixon - 468 Points - Ganassi
4- Erricsson - 465 Points - Ganassi
5 - Palou - 439 Points - Ganassi

An additional point is also awarded to the polesitter, and two additional points are awarded to the driver who leads the most laps. All in all, a driver can score up to 54 points in a single race.
For the Indy 500, points are doubled. However, the only points doubled are those included in the list above; the bonus are not doubled.
Heads look so much better attached to drivers.Cars looked so much better without the screens.
I guess it's a matter of time before they shut the series down due to safety concernsHeads look so much better attached to drivers.
Safety isn't an all-or-nothing issue. Racing can be made safer without having to shut it down. That's what the halo does. Regardless, safety overrides appearance.I guess it's a matter of time before they shut the series down due to safety concerns
Nice try at changing the subject. I'm not biting.Moto GP guys are laughing
Sadly it's a spectator sport.Regardless, safety overrides appearance.

Just noticed you changing the subject away from the ugly screen and trying to incorporate the "halo" into it ... not bitingThat's what the halo does.
My point was that safety (rightfully) trumps appearance.Just noticed you changing the subject away from the ugly screen and trying to incorporate the "halo" into it ... not biting
Actually it does not. Auto racing is a spectator sport, when the race cars stop looking like racecars for "safety" reasons spectators tune out, once that happens, the series is no longer viable and ceases to exist.My point was that safety (rightfully) trumps appearance.
Define what makes a race car look like a 'race car'.when the race cars stop looking like racecars for "safety" reasons spectators tune out,
If we talk about stupid looking it's halos let's put a bar right across your vision. Windscreens look amazing, and I still stand they should be full fighter pilot style ****pits to look even cooler. But beyond that your entire argument is absurd.Actually it does not.

For the record, I'm pro Halo but hate the windscreen.
Open-****pit prototypes only went away within the last five years as well. Racing is always evolving in the name of safety, and I really don’t see the aeroscreen as a bad look. There should be a newer, lighter one coming in 2024 and then hopefully at some point a brand new chassis designed from the ground up to incorporate the aeroscreen. It’ll probably only look better interpreted in the future.Define what makes a race car look like a 'race car'.
Cars in other forms of racing don't look like these. Are cars in NASCAR, F1, IMSA, WEC, and countless other series 'race cars'?
Open-wheeled cars in this series 25 years ago didn't look much like these; even less so 50 years ago. Based on how they look, which ones are 'race cars': the ones from 2020, 1995, or 1970?
The appearance and disappearance of big ol' honkin' rear wheel 'bumpers' were major changes too. I didn't have a problem with them myself, and there occasional incidents when I wish they were still there.Honestly, the biggest aesthetic change recently was getting rid of the gaudy, downforcey OEM aero kits in favor of the lower downforce universal aero kit.
How about making safety a condition of point standings, like the higher you're up in standings the less safety equipment you are allowed, like seat belts and helmets. Any thoughts?But beyond that your entire argument is absurd.
Put Indy high up on the list. The museum also is really incredible.I love the IndyCar TV deal right now so much it makes me want to go to Indianapolis or Portland soon maybe
