I was out with the family and only got to watch the entire second segment of tonight's Indy race, but what a freaking snoozer! I was considering going to the Indy race this fall at Kentucky, but if it's going to be this "exciting", I will save my $80 per ticket.

Now where's my local dirt track tickets...

If you never saw them race then the speed alone is worth seen race. Not like watching on TV at all. I personally can see why Mario said that racing only on Ovals at those speeds flatout is perhaps the most dangerous racing of all in open wheel cars.

In hindsight the twinbill was kinda gimmicky.

The races weren't long enough to really establish a rhythm and the random draw more-or-less handed Power the second race.

Going into the corners at Indy at 225 +really takes balls, so to those drivers not so equipped, more power to them.
