Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach–My Thoughts During the Race

Hello again everyone!  I thought I’d try something new for today’s race.  I’m going to blog my thoughts and reactions as I watch the race.  I make no apologies for having drivers who I like and drivers who I don’t like, so don’t expect me to be objective.  You’re free to disagree, as long as you remain respectful.  Variety is the spice of life, after all.

It was a Dual-icious Weekend!

Yes, I went there.  Sorry.  I’ll understand if you stop reading now.  🙂

The post-Indy 500 depression had barely lifted and the IndyCars were back at it with practice and qualifying for Dual 1 on Friday, and practice/qualifying for Dual 2 on Saturday; followed of course by Dual 1 Saturday afternoon and Dual 2 Sunday afternoon.  It all seems so clear-cut now, doesn’t it?  Why were we all so confused on Friday?  (That was sarcasm, by the way, since many of you don’t know me very well just yet…)

My Indy 500 Experience

I feel like I’m behind the curve on this, since almost all of the blogs I read have covered their Indy 500 experiences already, but I just got home from the airport at 8 PM yesterday and I was back at work today, so this is the first real chance I’ve had to sit down and write.  I have a lot to say about my time at IMS (and related topics) but for tonight I’m just going to give a semi-brief rundown of the events of my weekend.

I had another absolutely amazing five days in Indy!  I arrived on Thursday, a little late due to a plane that sat on the tarmac for no apparent reason (and with only one update from the flight crew) for over an hour, but very very excited that I was finally in Indy.  My boss was already at the airport (yes, I travel with my boss, we were friends before she was my boss–and she’s primarily a NASCAR fan but who can resist Indy?!) so we headed right to the Emerald Aisle and chose our rental car (a really cute Chevy Captiva SUV with leather seats, remote start, and XM Radio) and off we went to IMS!

It’s Race Morning!

Isn’t is glorious to be able to say that?!  I’m following the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg warmup on racecontrol.indycar.com and I can’t stop smiling.  It’s going to be a great day and PLEASE let us have only racing to talk about today.  I don’t want to know what Beaux Barfield ate for breakfast, or what Mark Miles is listening to on his iPod right now, or which members of the Hulman-George family had a dispute last night.  I only want to hear about how strong Simona de Silvestro looks now that she’s driving a Chevy-powered car, or how impressive Tristan Vautier is, or how Andretti Autosport is looking strong again this year.
