This afternoon at 3:30 PST.
Should be a great race. Practices and Qualifying were entertaining, lots of off track excursions...
Rookie Patrico O'Ward qualified fifth and was fastest in one of the practices.
Ryan Hunter-Reay is on the pole.

Finale already - seems like a short season.

I have gotten away from following IRL for a long time but it seems early for the end ?

We will be watching on the tube... got RHR on my fantasy team, so hopefully he stays in front!

Sonoma is a great venue, my bestie went there last year and said it was a great place to watch a race.

We may get to Austin next year, but we go every year to LB usually on Friday to watch qualifying and have a few adult drinks.

Dixon is a machine. That's his third championship in six years, and five total.

Went out to the local dirt track&helped a buddy of mine on his non wing 410 Sprint last night.
Had a blast.
Track was dead heavy in the heat,we tightened it up,took stagger out changed rear torsion bar etc. anticipating dry slick feature.
WRONG.
...stayed tacky.Big Cushion up top.
Rim riding bravest man wins kinda deal...driver ran out of tear offs but kept on trucking.
Afterwards we drank beer&laughed at missing the set up...so bad.
Too much fun.
Back in the day...Indy car drivers Foyt,Andretti,Unsers,Parnelli,came from Sprint cars.
Today...
Indy car racing(for me)cures insomnia.
Bunch of drivers only a couple of racers.Cookie cutter cars...Sorry...but it just doesn't do anything for me.

Miss larger than life racers...who came up thru the ranks driving dirt cars.

Wish I felt different.
