Official 2010 Indy 500 Thread

Watching the race now. The starting laps have been crazy. Already 2 crashes and a couple caution. Feel bad for Will Power, fuel nozzle got stuck in his car and now he's gotta go back to the pits.

One story that is cool is that, Tony Kanaan is making a ridiculous run from starting in the last row to 15th place currently, he made a ridiculous pass running past 10 cars at one time.

Also the Indy Pace Car Camaro looks awesome on the track. ABC's Robin Roberts is doing an awesome job keepin the car on the track considering she has to drive that car @ 100 during a yellow and 120 at green.

What a great day for racing today!!!...

The INDY 500 & COKE 600!!!...

Love that Indy Pace Car Camaro...makes the caution laps a bit more fun to watch...

How about Jack Nicholson 'kissing the bricks' before the race and waving the green flag at the start, as well as the caution flags and subsequent green flags...normally, the 'honorary' flag waver just waves the green at the start of the race, but Jack is 'rockin' it out there' by still waving the flag....he must be having a blast up there on the flag stand...

Oh cool.......didn't see your thread up there Donna.

Yea.......Jack is having a blast. Cracks me up......I keep imagining him as the Joker everytime he's flying that flag around.

Happy to help!!!...the Indy 500 just hit the 'half way mark', so there is plenty of good racing left....

The last 10 laps are usually the most exciting!!!...

Check out that Camaro Pace Car at the next caution!!!...

Robin Roberts is kickin ass as the driver of that ride. Keeping the car at a 100 and then 120 on the green takes some gutz

Feel bad for Matos and Power with those crazy problems they had. Dixon too, how about the top 2 teams in IRL having these weird issues?!

Also my boy Kanaan is out there in 5th now, that dude has a serious ride today. Starting in last row and going to 15th place. He made that one ridiculous pass look like a piece of cake in the beginning.

I love Memorial Day Sundays

There have been plenty so far! They seem to be settling down now, with some great green flag racing. Dario wants to get past Rahal, but Rahal doesn't want to go a lap down. Love that pace car!!!!!!!

With the side by side, you get to see the Camaro Pace Car longer...

Tony Kanaan is a 'man on a mission' - TO WIN for his first time at Indy!!!...

I'm rooting for Helio to do the 4-peat and join AJ Foyt, Rick Mears, and Al Unser in the '4 time winner's club'...

Screw Rahal.......he's already been warned and should be penalized. If you are not fast enough GTFO of the way. Thats just creating a stupid and dangerous situation.

Just a side note ----- before the Indy 500 was ever televised (yes, there was a time when it wasn't), my Dad, who was a Volunteer Fireman for 60 years, used to march in the Memorial Day parade, rush home, still in his FD uniform, and listen to the race on a transistor radio 'glued to his ear' for the rest of the day...

In those days, the race was run on the ACTUAL Memorial Day, which is May 30th...before it was changed to a Monday holiday...

My Dad loved the Indy 500...he and my Mom went to the race when they were first married and he never forgot that excitement...

He also loved NASCAR too, and that is how I came to be a race fan...it's been a huge part of my life since I was little...

My Dad passed away in September 2008, so it is very hard for me to watch and enjoy either series, however I still watch these races in his memory and to keep the tradition alive...I hope he now has a 'front row seat in heaven' to see any race he wants...

And I am enjoying seeing the Camaro Pace Car in both the Indy Series and NASCAR!!!...
