Rats. Baltimore off the schedule for at least the next two years, due to conflicts with Labor Day events. Hate to say it, but that might be the end of Baltimore. Bummer.

Montoya signs with Penske for Indycar.

Now we'll see if he has anything left.

He should post the details of his diet. So Allmendinger gets bumped?

Since 2005? Same number as Montoya.

I'm not sure that driving ability is the reason for the hire. My guess is that Montoya's ethnicity makes him more appealing to some sponsors, although I may be wrong.

Good grief, Dario is a fortunate guy, all considered. I texted a friend moments afterward that I was concerned that he'd not walk again, and thank goodness I was wrong. That tub must be hella stout.

Sato seemed like a deer in the headlights in the interview...not entirely his fault perhaps, but still, with his track record...

Terrible wreck, really high speeds. I saw a tire bounding through the air untethered, apparently going over the fence. If it had landed in the stands, dead people I fear.

the new tub seems extremely safe. as a sato fan, i was yelling at it until i saw the replay. i really can't pin that on him.

no question, they need to move the spectators away from the outside of the turns. even though that type of wreck is rare, when it happens it's bad.

Good old Sato made sure they once again didn't get a clean standing start the first time around. He pulled into the wrong slot.

they need to do more standing starts so they get some experience. they're terrible.

of course, the flying starts aren't that great either.

Anyone watch the finale at Fontana? It reminded me why I like oval racing and miss it. But that flying axle also reminded me why it's so dangerous.

I was surprised to hear that Andretti is switching to Honda engines. I wonder why? Gansassi wins the title with Honda but is switching to Chevy. I guess Honda made Andretti a great deal to become their flagship team?

I'm sorry that Dario Franchitti is calling it a career.

I was a big fan back when he was winning. The last couple of seasons either he lost his edge or his motivation. I can't shake the feeling the medical advice he got was all the nudge he needed to get out.
