Nasty crash there between Andretti and Rahal. Lucky it was at low speed would have been nasty otherwise. Top drive by power but cant help feel sorry for Dixon.

That realy was an enjoyable race to watch. Will powers fuel millage compared to Sato's at the end was crazy. The last two races hes realy slowly worked his way to the front and its paying off for him.

Is it just me or do others see Marco Andretti way too agresive? Im not saying the crash he had was his fault but everytime he gets behind someone or someone gets behind him you expect some crazyness abit like Bargs in the V8's.

Also goto feel for the young guy at t1 leading, was the correct move and would have made it without the tap. The commentators bias towards Dario was incredable until they watched the 10th replay and then shut their mouths.

Also herd the push to pass will come back once the teams get a good hold of the current engines, glad to hear that.

Indy really need Andretti to step up. They desperately need a young American to be able to promote in the series to appeal to the common man over there

Marco isn't the way forward for US racing.

It's Hinchcliffe.

anyway - ridic fuel mileage by Power.

Great drive from Pagenaud AGAIN - also good stuff from Sato until the contact.
Barrichello a nice day as well. Actually benefitted from that blockage!

Hinchcliffe is Canadian. The series need a Yank to step up to the plate, whoever it may be.
