    Anybody know if the streams of this week's practice are TV with video or just timing and scoring?

    Thanks!

    Gawdamighty, there are some knuckle-dragging mouth-breathers in the comments feed accompanying the video. They make this place look like MIT or Cal Tech.

    lol That's YouTube for you. I think you can hide it if need be.

    I've been looking for the gasoline alley live stream camera that you can watch what is going on.

    Can't find it. Maybe it isn't on yet.

    :(

    On Motorsport.com, Will Power is bragging on Wickens- saying he will be the IndyCar Champion one day. Maybe even this year.

    I found a setting called 'Theater Mode'. It doesn't hide the morons but it does push them down where I'd have to scroll to see them.

    It has a setting right below the chat box that says "hide chat" if you can't take the mouth breathers. They should have a moderator or two to block the pervs and the idiots, most channels that stream usually do that.

    Wow she's getting waaaay low in the corners right now. I just want her to survive this deal and be able to walk away. Love watching these cars as it can go really bad at any time.

    Every so often I need reminded why I don't sign up on general purpose, non-specific social sites. This innoculation should hold me nicely for several more months before I need another booster shot.

    does honda or chev have an advantage here for power?

    General consensus for a couple of years was that Honda did, but according to some, Chevy made gains late last year. Not sure we'll find out until Friday or the weekend.

    That nose cam is awesome! The fact that they do those speeds for 500 miles is and has always been mind boggling to me.

    I remember hearing last week that the Hondas get slightly better fuel mileage. It's not likely this will go green all the way, but it could make a difference over 200 laps.

    Does being able to use a slide rule still count as a Phys. Ed. credit? :p

    Yeah, if she finishes well or runs near the front most of the day, the 'What If' crowd will go nuts. So will those who will say she wouldn't have done so well without all the NASCAR experience. :rolleyes:

    First early today lol.

    I read they were doing race stuff on full fuel loads yesterday. Sato and Servia look good so I think they're okay.
