Texas Indycar (spoilers)
« on: March 20, 2022, 03:54:09 PM »
I may be wrong but it seems that 8 of the top 10 Qualifiers at Texas are not USA born.

It is a real International Series.

I think you are spot on, Steve-O.  Makes the series a real challenge for all - here and abroad.  I welcome all drivers coming to race the series.

First oval of the season.

I truly believe that indycar is a far superior series to F1. On any given weekend there are 10-12 drivers that are in with a good chance of the win, compared to F1 where maybe 3, and it is those same 3 week after week. Absolute bore feast, I can’t be bothered watching it any more.

If you don’t like my comment, ignore it. If you don’t know how to ignore it, message me and I will be only too happy to demonstrate how.

Scotty pipped on the last corner by Newgarden after dominating the race.
Finished 2nd and not happy with that.
It shows just how good a driver he really is.

Ominous form to start the season for Scotty. His points lead is almost as big as the gap from 2nd to 9th.

And the traction compound has ruined it.  As good as the racing is, they've turned it into a single line where George Straits exs live.
