    If they want this to be interesting, they should make the stages heats. Eleminate the back 10 every 100 laps.

    It was so hot at Indy, that combined with the new aero package made it hard to drive in traffic. Tires don't get much grip when you have track temps in the 130s. It was good to see the drivers challenged though and they couldn't just floor it around the track.

    Lawd nascar is broken. The Indy 500 had 24% more viewers than the 600 this year. NASCAR is in trouble when more people are watching Indycar.

    And the Indy 500 was the lowest rated in 30 years.

    How does Rutledge Wood continue to stay employed? Can he die in a plane crash with the Waltrip brothers?

    I said it last year and I'll say it again....Mike Bagley is a huge plus to NBC's coverage for Watkins Glen. Junior is badly exposed by himself in the Bus Stop. You can hear the difference in "ad lib" experience between Bagley and Junior.

    And Logano already out of race but I think nascars rule is dumb there, especially for a track like this.
