    Which one did think was the best? (What ever that means)

    Indy 500 for me. Leaders trading the lead and no cautions in the last few laps. Good stuff. F1 was not exciting.

    Can't believe I forgot to vote in my own poll. LOL

    The actual best race was the Indy lights followed by the Indy 500. The NASCAR stage racing makes me ill and the lack of competition in F-1 has caused me to stop watching entirely. I hang on to hope that NASCAR dumps the stages and lets the races play out in a natural manner. The strategy at the Indy 500 throughout the race was the best part for me.

    The Indy 500 was terrific. There's a forum and active threads to talk about it. Doing it in the NASCAR forum is odd. None of those races occurred at the same time, so unless one were deciding to pick one to attend in person, they aren't in competition with each other.


    Anemic momentum racing isn't the best of anything, but it was a fun little warmup.

    I only watched Charlotte and I would be disappointed if that was the best thing on TV

    I enjoyed the Indy 500, the strategy game was really cool .... and no stages

    It is interesting, this year has seen a lot of races up compared to last year, that is good thing, the Coke 600 drew a 2.6 overnight, up 8% from last year.

    It's hard to beat the finish of the Indy 500. Truex passing everyone in the carpool lane was a sadly predictable outcome.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the 600. I thought NASCAR did a great job in all aspects. Indy put on a great show also. I didn't watch the Formula 1 race. The 600 gets my vote cause I'm a shill. The crowd was good, the racing was fantastic. NASCAR is on the upswing.

    Indy 500 by a nose over the Coke 600. F1 makes me sleepy.

    Personally I think the stages are pretty unnecessary. I would be okay with a halftime break and bonus points to the halfway leader or something.

    Indy, World, and Monaco were all a 3/10 for me. Indy Lights was a 5/10. Easily the worst Memorial Day racing in quite a while

    I enjoyed Monaco’s yacht harbor.

    The 500 seemed like the best of the other two races.

    Bash thread or voicing our concerns about the sorry state of affairs this sport,which I have loved for over a half a century, is in. It’s a dog and pony show with gimmicks galore. May as well have organ grinders in each corner playing requests from the crowd. I didn’t make it through the first stage. After Indy I knew there was no way the 600 could live up to it. I will voice my dissenting opinions until they throw dirt in my face.

    You can do it in probably 30 different threads on this board, I've got about the same amount of time in so I'll be voicing mine too. see that freedom of speech goes both ways.

    I have no clue what a World of Outlaws is. I guess it can't be as bad as a world of in-laws.

    Exactly, but don’t dismiss my opinion as bashing.

    Bed for me after the first stage, I prefer surprise breaks in the race.

    Sunday was a Race Day for my wife and I. It is not a matter of which was best, but a matter of what the day means.

    We started with the F1 in Monaco having breakfast, then the Indy 500 with hamburgers and hot dogs, then the 600 with left overs, then to bed and finish the 600 over coffee Monday morning. (Love my DVR)

    We watched all three because it is a day of racing all over the world. The F1 race is what it always is and to make that circuit 78 times without hitting the wall or guard rail is amazing, it takes skills that few have.

    The Indy 500 did not disappoint, all the prerace observance of our Armed Forces was touching, the racing was close and crazy.

    The 600 was the best to me for a lot of reasons. The absolute reverence for our troops living and those that paid the ultimate price. Each car had a name of a fallen hero, Mike Joy would tell the history of the soldier when they would be looking at a particular car. The prerace ceremony, as always, is second to none. The playing of Amazing Grace on the Bag Pipes, if that did not choke you up, something is wrong. The 30 seconds of silence after the first stage was a choked up moment as well.

    As far as the race goes, it was very good for a Charlotte Race.

    Summary: We enjoyed all the races.

    75% preferred Indy as of now, I'm really surprised it's this lopsided for Indy with the ratings everyone gave the 600 in the rate the race thread.
