Agreed. I like her. I believe she's a better driver than ole what's-her-name.

Bad week for the pits. This time, it's in Indycar, Wilson's car stuck in gear, two pit workers to the hospital.

Damn, their website sucks. I was having a drink in the corner pub, and saw the IRL was in the news, but I couldn't tell what they were talking about. Now, all I know about it is what Waxy posted, because their website doesn't mention it.

Yes, I agree, their website is truly awful. Not at all user-friendly. Here's the story.

Somehow it's Bourdais's fault. Without Tracy in the series he must be at wits end trying to find somebody to hit.

He was exciting. But I'm glad he's no longer in the series. Just too reckless. And with today's tight budgets, one Sato is enough.

PT kinda lost me when he wrecked Franchitti (his team mate) twice in the same season tossing Franchitti's championship into the crapper, then took a swing at Green when he bitched him out in the pits for being an idiot.

Think I remember that Phoenix race at PIR when Tracey raced hurt, he lapped everybody on the track, twice, then wrecked chopping down on a back marker. Scarey fast when he was in his prime, but that was a long time ago and he never stopped wrecking cars.

He did make his bitching more entertaining than Villeneuve though

I was not a fan of PT late in his career. As his skills declined, he never toned down his aggressive driving nature. There came a point when he should have toned it down and driven smarter, but he never figured that out. That being said, I enjoyed watching him for many years.

Yes, I agree with all of this. Good one.

I was on a CART team in '89/90 when Tracy was coming up in Indy Lights or whatever they called it. I don't think he lost many races that year, if any?!

Toronto's always a fun race, but it ended pretty weak sauce with some dumb moves.

Bummed I missed it. Couldn't record three things at once.

In a nutshell, whenever the drama started getting amped up...somebody stuffed it at the end of the straight.


Some carried on, others didn't.

And Bourdais wrecked doing something dumb.
