Yeah I wouldnt mind if they could sqeeze in another 6-8 feet of width in the small area of trackI wonder if there isn’t some way to do a hairpin at the end of the bridge. That goofy tight, twisty section at the end of it isn’t conducive to much besides crashes. Nashville is a good market but there has to be a better layout somehow.
Newgarden drove him straight into a wall lolLooks like one more driver is fed up with Grosjean: Newgarden on contact with Grosjean: ‘Welcome to IndyCar; it gets tight’ | RACER
Chicago will probably be terribly boring or terribly wrecky. Even for a street course it’s a pretty uninspiring design. Newbie fans at the track will probably be wondering why Carrera Cup cars are quicker than NASCAR.I sure hope this clusterf**k is not a preview of Nascar in Chicago next July. Both Nashville races have been an absolute embarrassment to IndyCar.
The only good thing about this race was that my DVR was on NBC, not CNBC, so I only had to endure it half as long. I actually like the concept of in-town street racing, but really none of them are much good.
Newgarden drove him straight into a wall loI
Oh, it was subtle, but he stuffed him.Best angle I’ve seen that pretty clearly shows he just shoved him into a wall. Crappy track
There was Mid Ohio where he hit all his teammates at least once. At the first Indy RC event he got into t with Jack Harvey and got punted off into the weeds. We didn't see what led up to it, but Harvey have never done that to anyone else.I haven’t seen Grosjean get in much trouble since Barber
I didn't want him coming here based off his bad reputation, which in F1 was extremely well earned.and I think a lot of how others race him is based upon reputation and a good chunk of the paddock being pretty circlejerkishy.
Yeah but the first one at MO was on Rossi. I remember now he also sent Herta off but otherwise that’s it. Harvey was a jackass that day and ran over three people and got a penalty.Oh, it was subtle, but he stuffed him.

I agree, but we may not have seen what led up to it. Rossi races hard, but he lost his stuffing with Grosjean and ushered him into the fence. Something had to happen before that because you don't just snap like that for no reason.Yeah but the first one at MO was on Rossi.
Harvey has been a disappointment, but I was cheering for him that day. If only he had wrecked Grosean one more time it would have been a perfect day (homage to Tony Stewart).Harvey was a jackass that day and ran over three people and got a penalty.
But it is fair to judge him by how many people he has wrecked in the Indycar series and it's been considerable. Like I say, in all of Grosjean's beefs, the one constant is Grosjean himself.I don’t think it’s fair that he still has that reputation from being a youngster coming out of F2. The Lotus stuff was mostly a decade ago.
You can't just admit you stuffed someone. Not only does that give the officials a reason to penalize you (in a tight championship) and the sponsors don't like that stuff much either. It was pretty obvious what happened. I didn't want to believe it, so I chalked it up to a racin' deal. Having looked at it a few times,. oh hell yeah., Her stuffed him. Having said that, this is the one time I am ok with dirty driving.I wish Newgarden would’ve just admitted it rather than hem and haw about how everyone drives like that. What?? Take some freaking responsibility.
It was Sato, so even angry he was still pretty chill. He said something to the effect the other guy drove into him and he was disappointed.Whew, that race was an absolute mess.
Stayed away from social media on this one, but damn that was a wreckfest from start to finish. Does anyone have the Takuma Sato interview? I heard he did not mince words about Devlin.
Devlin also told him he got hit from behind (Herta was behind), and Sato later went on to review the onboards and saw he just missed the corner.It was Sato, so even angry he was still pretty chill. He said something to the effect the other guy drove into him and he was disappointed.
How about a hairpin at EACH end of the bridge?I wonder if there isn’t some way to do a hairpin at the end of the bridge.
They have a full replay up on Peacock, whole runtime is 2:42.Is there any place I can watch a rebroadcast of this race? I had DVR'd it but unfortunately because of rain delays, etc. NBC cut away from it about 30 or so laps in and moved it to CNBC. I didn't discover this until after the race had ended of course so it was too late to switch to CNBC. Peacock caries the races as well but they also only had carried the first 30 laps.
I found a few sites that carried Indycar re-broadcasts and they did have some races, just not the Nashville race yet. I managed to inadvertently find out who won (which spoils the surprise) but I'd still like to find a way to watch the rest of the race if possible. It's exactly stuff like this that's had me pi$$ed off at NBC's handling of Indycar lately. This, and other stuff like the fact that NBC announces winners of Indycar races during NASCAR cup races (and vice versa) before people who have DVR'd the races or plan to watch them on Peacock have had a chance to watch them yet.
