Mark Martin has the most Cup wins in 2009, yet he's on the verge of missing the Chase.

What's up with that?

After a week off, it's time to crank it up at The Brickyard.

Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Race Menu for the weekend series

While Indianapolis Motor Speedway is the most popular racetrack in the Hoosier State, the vast majority of motorsports events held in Indianapolis are held at O'Reilly Raceway Park, including a Craftsman Truck Series race and a Busch Series event.

Drag racing, road racing, Sprint Car races and other events suited to a shorter track fall to ORP, which changed its name from Indianapolis Raceway Park in 2006. You can also usually find a large racing program there on the night before the Indianapolis 500.

The annual NHRA U.S. Nationals are traditionally held there on Labor Day weekend and SCCA events are held on the park's road course.




Track Facts
Banking/Turns: 12 degrees

I believe the scientific explanation for this seemingly self-contradicting phenomena can be explained in the following formula: Checkers or wreckers.

Goodyear satisfied with practice results at Indy (here)

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)—Goodyear’s Greg Stucker arrived Friday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a nervous stomach. He left the historic track with a sense of relief.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. ran 27 laps on one set of tires and four-time Cup champion Jeff Gordon offered another emphatic endorsement that Sunday’s race at The Brickyard won’t look anything like last year’s debacle at Indy.

Stucker couldn’t have scripted it any better.

“It makes you feel pretty good,” Goodyear’s race tire sales director said after two practice sessions. “I’ve still got a few butterflies. We thought we had asked all the questions, gotten all the answers and were pretty thorough. We felt we were pretty good, but you’re always a little anxious when you get here.”

Stucker wasn’t just spouting the company line.

One driver after another put their stamp of approval on the new tires.

Longtime veteran Jeff Burton said he had full fuel runs, 33 to 35 laps, on the tires in testing without a hint of a problem. Joey Logano, the youngest race winner in Cup history, described the tires as “great” and Gordon said it was time to forget last year’s indelible race image—caution flags because of excessive tire wear.

“I think tires are a non-issue, let’s move on to something else,” Gordon said. “They have created a great tire. If anybody has an issue with tires, it’s not because they’re wearing out.”
