Indy 500

Ryan Briscoe

So the field is set for this years Running of the Indy 500, “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” as they say.  Well lets hope it isnt another crash spectacle where the pace car gets the points for leading the most laps as it has in past years.   Ryan Bricoe, the first Aussie to win the pole averaged 224.484.  What I am more interested in is the 2nd position of James Hinchcliffe, and number 7 starting position rookie Josef Newgarden.

I think these will be the guys to watch in this race, and as long as the rookie Newgarden can deal with the Indy traffic at speed I predict another rookie win in this years 500.

Unfortunately for Lotus IndyCar has opted, and rightly so, to not allow them to run qualifying boost levels during the race. They had made the promise not to make any changes to the rule before June 18th and they are sticking with that. I love the fact that Lotus is back in IndyCar racing and do hope they find the power they need to keep up with the Chevy and Honda teams.
