This tire crap is a safety issue that can’t be ignored.

"And NASCAR wonders why attendence is down and ratings are declining."

I feel sorry for the 250,000 people that paid good money to see this fiasco.

“This is a beautiful track! The aerial shots are amazing...’

This is my second least favorite track behind Pocono, which unfortunately is used twice.

So...now they are going to let some teams get the Pocono tires, a softer compound, ONLY?? if they have run out of these crapola Indy tires? They have only enough for FOUR sets of Pocono tires for everyone...

Somehow this doesn’t seem fair. Maybe it’s just me

The Pocono tires are a softer compound than what is in use right now......??

I thought they said earlier that the Poc tires were harder..?

“My question is, will they have any LEFT for Pocono, or will htye have to scramble and buy more?”

Cancel Pocono. Run Kentucky or better yet Sebring.

They’re throwing competition yellows every 10-12 green flag laps due to lousy tars.

They’re taking a tire off of the alitel car I think it was, and as the crew member cast it aside, the tire grindings practically showered off of it.

This would be awful to sit and watch live. Me, here in my living room, I don’t think it’s all that awful. No one is getting hurt, (they aren’t taking any crazy chances) so I’m free to enjoy to enjoy the whole (unintended) spectacle.

Tony’s on now :)

Tars are wearing out to the cords about every 8-10 laps. NASCAR has been calling competition yellows to try and keep crashes to a minimum. Now they are running out of tars and may need to use spare Pocono one which are even a softer compound.

I'm guessing they'll throw a caution and green/white checker with like two laps to go. A fitting end to a televised test session.

Goodyear tires messed up the tire compound somehow.
The tires are wearing horribly, turning into dust!
Right rear tires are BLOWING UP and Nascar is having to call for yellow flags every ten laps or so to allow the teams to check the safety of their tires.

Very, very bad situation for Nascar.

“Can someone tell me why this race is the worst ever? I don’t have cable and I’m trying to figure out what’s going on. Thanks! :-)”

The tires are lasting only 10 laps. NASCAR is throwing a yellow every 10 laps. They are going to run out of tires and have to use the Pocono tires.

Dale Jr. is discussing which of the cars in front of him are going to crash because they only took two tires.

A couple, but they’re all down to cords at the yellows. It also means that a lot of drivers are are going less than 100%.

Everyone to their own. But I think the open wheel tracks are terrible. Homestead was the same way until they banked it. Pocono is single file racing. I like two and three wide racing or the short track banging.
