Alright, new IndyCar season!

Wait, what?!? It says itís live but the radio broadcast started an hour ago. [censored]?

Oh well, just avoid the radio and watch the TV broadcast. Wait, what?!? Itís on ABC? Oh no, donít tell me.....

ANOTHER YEAR OF SCOTT GOODYEAR AND EDDIE CHEEVER! Noooooooooooo................I canít even turn the sound off and listen to the radio because theyíre an hour ahead. Argggggggggg.....

Oh well, the race is starting....wait, what? Will Power does one of his patented [censored] moves and spins in the second corner? I thought all the rookies were going to be the problem. Wait, what?!! Kanaan spins on lap one?

Good Lord, itís going to be a long year.

ABC whiffs on a restart airing a commercial instead. Oh, boy.

The radio is streaming about 1/2 second behind the TV on indycar.com. ABC only has this race, the Indy races, and Detroit. It is nice hearing Alan Bestwick at least.

Nice to see some of the rookies taking it to the veterans. Still holding out hope for a good season for Charlie Kimball.

What a mess. A field full of drivers who canít drive. A TV broadcast thatís a joke. Nothing like a commercial during a restart!

Iím depressed. This is embarrassing for IndyCar.

Well, I guess you can fall back on the excitement and competitiveness of Nacar or F1. So be my guest and do so.

No one is a bigger fan of IndyCar than I. I went to my first Indy 500 in 1966 and Iíve been to at least the last 35+ consecutive races and Iíll be in my seat again this year. Hopes were high going into this season with the new car and all. Whether or not you like NASCAR and F1 styles of racing, youíve at least got to give them both credit for excellent coverage and really good professional announce teams. IndyCarís shows on ABC are a joke and they deserve to be criticized. I do so in the fervent hope they will get better, which only comes with a wholesale move away from ABC which frankly, has no interest in investing in their racing production.

But, I will admit, right now, watching Tiger chase his first win in over five years is more exciting.

Well, each to his own. I've been an Indycar fan for 45 years. I think this race has been very exciting, especially in the last 20 laps. We're about to have a shootout with about 6 laps to go! Great stuff! I'll watch Tiger when this is over. That's fun stuff, too!

I don't blame Rossi for trying, but wow way to take out the leader.

Terrible ending for the guy who's luck ended with all those restarts and then gets wrecked.
