    I'm so damn happy that Graham won but also so damn sad that Hinch didn't.

    I'm shaking.

    I only saw the lap 20 laps but my goodness, that was intense, thrilling, and scary. Congrats to Graham Rahal on winning by 0.008 of a second.

    Yes the race was exciting. Yes no one got hurt seriously. But IndyCar should never have pack racing on this narrow of a track. Plus you have drivers out there that think they're at Talladega in a Cup car beating and banging and bump drafting in a car with no fenders. I'm looking at you Rahal. It's going to end badly again if they're not careful. I'm not dissing the show. The show was crazy. I just don't want our drivers to get hurt.

    That photo finish is very similar to a lot of the Atlanta/Charlotte photo finishes in the Cup series back in the early 2000s, just with the inside winning.

    Just watched those last 9 laps. All knowledge, driver codes, physical laws, etc. became out ruled during that period of time. :eek:

    For a race that wasn't planned to happen until May, I think a good crowd showed up to Watkins Glen.

    Well that didn't take long. A couple cars spun in the first corner on the first lap.

    One of Mikhail Aleshin's tires just exploded exiting the esses. Didn't see that coming but I wonder if we'll see that again.

    That was a big hit into the tire barriers on the inside exiting turn 1 for Graham Rahal. I'm glad he's okay.

    My two favorite drivers in the same wreck. Yay.

    At least they're okay, and Kimball didn't get a penalty, he didn't deserve one.
