    It may of been the last lap, But i'm glad they were able to go green. (Just about didn't though.)

    Juan Piedrahita jumped way out of line coming to the green, He was in 2nd when it happened. Fortunately, He was able to get back on track without incident.
    He's the car that you can see though the fence.

    Just a question about the cars in general, but has the downforce on the cars changed any over the past couple years?

    When I saw that I figured he was about to become one with the wall. Luckily he had quick reflexes lol. Not sure where he thought where he was going though.

    I think going to be one of the biggest sporting events of the year and possibly in my whole life. With 350,000 people expecting to be at Indianapolis (biggest crowd is years), I can't imagine what the atmosphere is going to be. The last four Indy 500 have had the four most lead changes in the event's history so I think the racing is going to be good.

    Weather at Indy should be much better than what we'll see at Charlotte. Simulated radar with most models don't have much across central Indiana by mid-to-late afternoon, and what it does try to develop is east of Indianapolis metro.

    I will forever miss Jim Nabors singing "Back Home again in Indiana." I wish he could had done just for this race since it is the 100th running.

    The guy's 85. Highly doubt he could, if he wanted to.

    That's already more lead changes than half of the 2015 Sprint Cup Season...

    Townsend Bell has a really fast car, don't be surprised to se a dark horse win from him.

    It is stunning to see the lack of SAFER barriers at this track, especially since this was the first track to use the soft walls.
