Too quiet. My fave Aleshin grabbed his first pole for tomorrow at Pocono. Been a hectic weekend.
Wait it's tomorrow?! Darn Olympics made me miss the ad.
Many thanks, now I'll remember to watch it.
I'll be there in person; not sure what section I'll be in.
Also will try for some autographs.
Aleshin really is a good driver. About time he put the red and blue machine on pole.
Looking at the weather forecast, I'm expecting that we'll have the race on Monday.
Hopefully not...I'm at the college from 8 to 4 on Monday.
Are you serious?
Mother nature is not a race fan this weekend.
Race will be at noon EDT tomorrow.
Rain washes out ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway until Monday
LONG POND, Pa. -- The ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway has been postponed by rain and will be run beginning at noon ET Monday. The race will be telecast live on NBCSN with the green flag scheduled to wave at 12:09 p.m.
The 500-mile race on the 2.5-mile "Tricky Triangle" oval is scheduled to be the 13th race to be completed on the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series schedule. It was scheduled for a 3:10 p.m. ET start, but light rain moved into the area shortly after noon and became heavier as race time approached. With a stronger storm front moving through the area later in the afternoon, INDYCAR and track officials made the decision to postpone the race.
Mikhail Aleshin, in the No. 7 SMP Racing Schmidt Peterson Honda, won the Verizon P1 Award in qualifying Saturday at the track with a two-lap speed average of 220.445 mph. It was the first pole of the Russian driver's Indy car career.
Josef Newgarden will start second in the No. 21 Fuzzy's Ultra Premium Vodka/ECR Chevrolet, missing out on winning the pole by less than a tenth of a second over the 5-mile qualifying run. Newgarden's two-lap average speed was 220.195 mph.
Eighteen drivers remain mathematically alive in the hunt for the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series championship, led by Team Penske's Simon Pagenaud. The driver of the No. 22 Menards Chevrolet has collected 484 points through the first 12 completed races of the season, building a 58-point lead over teammate Will Power in the No. 12 Verizon Chevrolet. Power will start eighth and Pagenaud 14th when the green flag waves.
Three past Pocono race winners start farther back in the 22-car field. Juan Pablo Montoya, the 2014 race winner, starts on the inside of Row 7 in the No. 2 Penske Truck Rental Chevrolet. Scott Dixon, the 2013 race winner and reigning Verizon IndyCar Series champion, will be on the inside of Row 10 in the No. 9 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet. Ryan Hunter-Reay, last year's Pocono winner, starts last in the Andretti Autosport No. 28 DHL Honda after crashing his primary car in practice and not making a qualifying attempt in the backup car.
Indy cars have raced 22 times in the past at Pocono, annually from 1971-89 and again starting in 2013. All of the races have been 500-mile distances except two shortened by rain in 1975 (420 miles) and 1981 (305 miles). Both of the rain-shortened races were won by A.J. Foyt, whose four wins at Pocono are the most in Indy car history.
This is the second Verizon IndyCar Series race this season to be delayed by rain. The Firestone 600 at Texas Motor Speedway was scheduled for the night of June 11 but pushed back to the following afternoon by rain and wet track conditions. Seventy-one laps were completed on June 12 before rain returned. The race was suspended at that point and will be completed Aug. 27.
Great... sitting in the line to leave.
Won't be able to attend now, I have college on Monday.
Calling in sick tomorrow. Not missing this.
Annnnnnnnndddddddd DVR'd...son of a ****. I wanted to end summer vacation on a high note not this ********.
Rain at Pocono??? When has that ever happened before /sarcasm
If that isn't a race ban for Kimball... then what is..?
What happened? I'm at work .
Sure, totally Rossi's fault that Kimball's spotter can't tell what a car exiting its pit stall looks like
All that room on pit road and Kimball is going to drive in the lane cars exit into?
Not gonna lie, that was all rossi's car controllers fault,
Yep. That happened. Some big air and a big scare ensued there.
How? Rossi went in the slow lane as he's supposed to, it was Kimball's Spotter that should've seen that coming and didn't stop him from sweeping across both lanes.
Helio is lucky it wasn't worse. I saw that and got scared. I think Helio and Kimball would've hit had Rossi not already hit him.
Tried watching the recording of the race and my was somehow cut short/bugged out. Well at least:
Damn it, race spoiled, now I know someone wins
Had the first lap on stream while I was waiting at college; turned it off on Lap 2.
Damn Helio is bloody lucky, very frightening
Rossi' car controller would know to expect Kimball to start pulling left for his pit box, and should have held him a few moments longer, if cars start stopping on pit lane to let cars out of pit boxes the domino effect would be horrendous,
It wasn't even that many cars on pit road at that time. At most, it was those 3 cars (Rossi, Kimball and Castroneves)
Agreed, but if they don't uniform a rule across all instances, it would be redundant at all times, imagine the carnage if that happened under yellow,
That was (yet another) unnecessary wreck. Sad.... Train the pit crews to watch the other cars, as well, please!
Would F1 style pit release procedures and pit lanes be safer or would it compromise the American style pit action?
Explain what differences you're referring to,
