Michael should have out his own car into the wall to force a yellow, giving Marco the win.

I was at the 1992 race....memorable for pole sitter Roberto Guererro spinning out on the parade lap before the start of the race.

"Go Danica Go !!!!"

I thought she ran a whale of a race.

She had the bad luck of taking 2 pit stops under the green when just a lap later the yellow flag came out. She still ended up in 8th.

Otherwise, she was right up there with the leaders. Very good, consistent driver.

I'm jazzed. Should the thread for next year's gig start right now? Maybe not.

Talk amongst yourselves...

I have a feeling Helio is going to be hard to beat. Hornish hasn't finished many if any Indy 500's.

I am sure everyone is happy I can only bet with my money..!!..

Oh yeah, everyone in the pits said "what a moron" It was because qualifying all month was in the heat, and a storm blew in on Saturday, and it was 58 degrees on Sunday. He punched the turbo and spun his car into the wall.
