    Welcome to sunny St. Petersburg, Florida and the St. Petersburg Street Curcuit! 14 turns and an airport runway set this course apart from all others. The SRD IndyCar Series is making only its second run here this weekend, so there is bound to be lots of learning yet to do. 80 laps to win in Florida, can Bobby Farrell do it again?

    The St. Petersburg Street Circuit is a 14 turn, 1.806 mile temporary street course in St. Petersburg, Florida.

    Teams will use the Firestone Greens this weekend, the Hard compound.

    Drivers to Look Out For:
    Bobby Farrell- Bobby Farrell has dominated the two road courses ran this season, and is in strong form to win again this weekend. Farrell finished 18th last season, after sliding in oil and crashing.

    Anthony Curtain- Anthony Curtain hasn't had the results he's wanted since moving to Asher Racing, but he is the defending winner here in St. Pete. Look out for the #97 this weekend.

    Kyle Missimer- "The Mizz" has also had a mundane start to the 2016 season, but with his teammates win last week and a strong road course program at FPR, he's definitely still a playing factor.

    I don't know if it's me or what, but I just can't qualify this year. I seem to seize up when it comes to qualifying.

    The weekend is starting off better than the past few. Good speed in the car and starting in the Top 10 will make raceday hopefully easier.

    Wow. I don't know what it is about this track but it seems like we can not get a handle here. We had a good run in practice but then just fell apart in qualifying. I do have faith in my guys that they will figure it out and we will have a strong run in the race. We just have a lot of work to do to get to the front from 23rd.

    "Happy, but not thrilled with 14th. Hoping we can maybe get off-strategy to move up. Still not sure why we're struggling so much on these road and street courses. With Kyle back in 27th, we're really scratching our heads. How can we put three in the top 15 in Q last week on an oval...and barely get one to make that when we're in our wheelhouse?"

    "Definitely a good start overall for my #24 RTIC Coolers Chowda's Performance Honda this weekend. 15th in practice and starting 19th so hopeful we can rebound. We have had some tough weeks the last couple weeks as a team so time for us to make a comeback."

    The growing pains of starting a team are here. It's frustrating for sure considering we were the points leader and now we're, effectively, out of the hunt so quickly.

    We've got to get better every day.

    At the moment, Friday night. Something came up on Monday night.

    However, we'll keep going straight into the weekend with Homestead practice/qualifying on Saturday.
