Well, Scott Dixon has won the Pole for the 99th 500 Mile race, but 2015 must go down as one of the most embarrassing Qualification days in the history of the event.

Kneejerk reactions, late rule changes, penalising Honda for what seems to be a Chevy problem..... then they stomp further on the traditions of Indy by making Qualifying a one shot shootout, with no ability to withdraw your time and have a go at pole.... but then let the last 4 guys have a second chance so they can still call it 'Bump Day'...... no wonder the whole thing is about as popular as Tony Cochrane in the ARDC boardroom.....

Will be a fabulous race as always, but its just a one-day event now, not a "Month of May"





Channeling your inner Robin Miller there Racci?

I do agree with him on most things (not his views on Sam Posey though )

---------------------------------------------------------------------

So, after all the BS that went on over the last two weeks, we were treated to a truly fabulous Indy 500 this morning.

Montoya drove the wheels off his car, coming from the back to the front and his moves on Dixon and Power right at the end were stunning, a fully deserved victory.

It was good to see how much he appreciated this win compared to his first win in 2000, when he generally seemed to just not really give a ****.

The aero packages worked well meant the guys could race for the lead this year, rather than whoever was leading being a sitting duck on the next straight.... The Honda's were painfully slow though, they have some homework to do for next year.

Great job by Ryan Briscoe to start off the middle of the last row, get knocked off on lap 1 but still wind up finishing 12th.

Not sure the 'new' way of singing "Back Home Again" hit the mark.... and was one of the younger Hulman/George family members appearing alongside her grandmother when she gave the command to start engines a signal of a change coming?

Bloody awesome race. Absolutely gutted with the outcome though.

Indycar ****s on F1 for closeness of racing and entertainment. Not just the 500 but if you compare the weekend's races, there's no comparison.

I was hoping to wake up this morning and read that Power had won. So damn close! Maybe Juan day Will will win Juan Indy 500.
