    Wish they would show some of the races on NBC, this year on NBC instead of Indycar or F1 races they sometimes showed beach volleyball or Ice skating :rolleyes:.

    Love that Phoenix is back after a long absence and very happy to see Pocono back. Still, not enough ovals, but if the racing is as good as this season's was, I'll probably be able to overlook that somewhat.

    Still pissed Fontana is off. But I am loving the equality between the type of tracks. We just need like 2 more of each and we'd be absolutely golden.

    Don't count on that Boston date. Local government is not happy about Indy being late to show them a plan that would actually generate revenue. Similar to what happened with the 2024 Olympic bid here.

    Living in Louisiana, we don't get a lot of racing besides drag racing. For Indycar to take NOLA Motorsports Park off the schedule after only one race is ridiculous.

    The new Verizon paint scheme for Montoya and Power was released today, and I love it.

    I know I am biased because I live in the state but the race I'm looking forward to is Phoenix. With this being the first time Indycar will race on the new configuration it will be interesting to see how the racing looks. I was at the test session back on February 27th and I believe six drivers reached 190 mph which is crazy for how small of a track Phoenix is.

    I'll be damned if someone doesn't go into the fence at Phoenix with speeds like those test sessions.

    I hope Josef can back up last year and run for title.

    Not sure how I feel about what appears to be Kimball's livery for this season...

    Hoping he can have a good season, regardless.

    I'm a big fan of Kimball and I do not like the new livery at all. I just can't get into it after seeing the vibrant orange and blue we've had for the past few seasons.

    Will Power WILL NOT RACE today due to illness. Oriol Servia will drive the #12 at St Petersburg Today.

    Wish Will Power a speedy recovery and hope it doesn't get worse.
