Indy

Anybody watching this circus? How can there be this much trouble with tires? Guys won't even run more than 8 laps on a set because the cords start showing, and they're talking they possibly may run out of tires before the race is over. Huh? That's like saying there weren't enough baseballs to finish a baseball game! Nice job NASCAR.

They were talking yesterday about this and siad its always been an issue. They also stated they might let each team have another set if need be.

They said tires typically last at least 30 laps at Indy and Goodyear had to bring in the tires they use at Pocono for backup. Should be interesting to see if they knock the walls down today.

I agree it could be an issue with tires but I might also guess they wiill all be fine.

Looks to be whomever gets lucky with tires will win today. NASCAR and Goodyear have really messed this one up.

Yeah, tires shouldn't limit the level of competition at this level of racing. These guys are tip-toeing around just biding their time until the finish and the fans are not getting the performance they should.

Pathetic. A marque event like this and you can not even run more than 12 laps before a "competition Yellow" terrible. Wish I were fishing.

This is becoming worse than pathetic now. Kenseth lost the right side of his car from a tire blowing out. Earlier the same thing for Montoya. Poor.

I am sure glad I didn't fork over a bunch of money to go to this race. I think I would be asking for a refund.

This is not racing. I was looking forward to a great race but it looks like it will be a joke. This will probly end up being the longest race of the year with all of the "competition" cautions.

I agree, they are just riding around. The network can't go the 10 or so laps without a commercial break. I thought that they had Pocono tires there they could put on if things were bad? (and they are) Just lost the signal for some reason.

The NASCAR president just said that they have Pocono tires but they were only marginally better than the tires they are using if not the same. It sounded like they would only use them if they start to run out of tires.

Sad. One Indy race per year and it's a joke. Maybe they should run the rest of the race in reverse to make it worth watching!

One might not waqnt to use the extra tires as they are the softer Pocono tires and may handle different.

No choice but to take it very easy until the last 10 and then go for it. I would guess it will be a HMS car.

Go Jr. even if it will be a lame win.

All know I don't care for JJ but he should be the one to beat in the final ten. His getting better weekly. His team got it done on the last pit stop to win.

Can we have a do-over with better tires? Labor Day weekend would be good.

Probably the worst race I have seen. Thank God I DVR'd it. Watched it in less then 2 hours. They used more tires then they used to use at Darlington. Close to a half million people at an average of $150+ per ticket. NASCAR is happy.

One has to give some credit to NASCAR and Godyear as to find better tires to make the races better, I guess if they miss once it may not be the end of the world.

    • One day, Donald Trump is going to look a reporter straight in the eyes on national TV and say "I never ran for President".

    • You will probably have to keep a fan on that Lexan to keep it from completely frosting up, keep the original window close if it was a thermopane.  It wasn't clear if you could or couldn't see out the frosted glass.
    • Maybe a better way to put it is if you vote for Trump you get what you don't deserve...
    • Well I'm sorry but one of your lesser of two evils is going to be the next president.  If you want a continuation of Obama's economic polices, 550% increase in unvented refugees, obamacare, liberal Supreme Court justices,common core education, dilapidated military, all the lies/scandals, etc vote for Hillary, Stien, or Johnson.  Then own it if she is elected.
    • I had the winegard anser and that one was great, even in white out fog I had signal. I purchased and ice castle in 2015 and it came with the crank up and love the crank up, it take a little longer sometime to find signal, but one less thing sitting around.  If you could have an automatic finding one mounted to your house that would be the route I would go.
    • Anyone do any portable mods this off season????? Lets see what you have done
    • Wrong as usual.  If I vote for Trump and it turns out he doesn't do what he says he's going to do then I will get what I deserve.  I know this concept is hard for you and others to understand.  Let's take the list of Supreme Court Justices he says he going to choose from and all of the sudden he starts nominating from left field.  I will get what I deserve.  You will be trying to keep the drool off your keyboard.
