Per Dave Furst on Twitter- Track management said yesterday’s crowd was the biggest since Indycar returned in 2007. I don’t doubt it. It seemed like a bigger crowd than previous years.
This was the first Ganassi 1-2 finish since 2015 when Dixon and Tony Kanaan went 1-2 at Texas Motor Speedway. I didn’t think it was that recent.
The race really needs to begin at 2:30 instead of 4. Once again, I wasn’t asked.
The first photo below shows Sato next to Ericsson and Hinchcliffe just before contact. Sato started three rows behind them. how did he get next to them so quickly and avoid contact with cars in between? All photos are mine.
