That's more I like it. Wait....another Red Car won? Don't care. It was epic enough. Sarah leading, Eddie running fast, Marco passing high, Kanaan in-car cam views....THAT'S Chicagoland.
THAT....was the final race there (I hope not....but probably right).
Also it showed us that Will Power's kryptonite is left turns and left turns only. Even when he masters them something is bound to go wrong.
This week's Power Rankings MC Willy P must bow down to MC Scottsman D and his huge nasal strips.
In order for nasal strips to work more effectively, they require clean air.
Penske Perfect Precision. None of these things existed Saturday night.
I seriously don't know what's going on with him. By now he should have at least 13 podiums and 7 wins.
The "IZOD Race to the Party" dudes finished close together. Mission: Finish First (behind the Red Cars).
5. Helio Castroneves
Previous ranking: #4 (-1)
More Penske imperfection. Somebody has to get fired (if they haven't already).
That pre-race special Versus had with he and his wife has made me swear off marriage. If the job of a wife is to embarrass the hubby with nicknames the public isn't supposed to know then I don't wanna go.
It should be a mandatory rule that he must have an in-car cam at all times. Just have his cam in a bubble on the bottom of the TV screen all throughout the race.
He's watched "Days of Thunder" one too many times. Cole Trickle always passed high, but but it doesn't mean you should do it, too.
In Chicagoland terms, he lost by about 3/4 of a mile.
A great job sneaking in there at the end, but sadly others simply outran him all night.
I moved him up simply for his gesturing at Vitor and NOT AJ when he got knocked out by the #14 car. Smart move. But there's also another reason I moved him up....
You LOST to The Breadman....ON AN OVAL. I repeat, THE BREADMAN BEAT YOU. WTF?!?!??!!?
Taking out "them furriners" (even though you yourself are one) and still managing a good finish pleased Super Tex. You will not be fired or punched in the face.....yet.
According to HVM's website today (September 1st) is her birthday. Might I suggest getting her a new car. Make sure it has been built within the past 3 years this time.
15. Bertrand Baguette
Previous ranking: unranked
He's been a revelation the past few weeks. That means he's due for getting jinxed again by KV Racing. "The Hitman" Viso doesn't take too kindly to rookies.
DNQ (Bumped from the field)
Previous ranking: #14 (no longer ranked)
On his 29th birthday he has to finish 29th. Proof that as you close in on your 30th birthdays are no longer worth looking forward to.
Now he'll drive for Sarah again at Kentucky. That HAS to be a record for team-switching during a season. I should start calling him "The Mercenary".
Once again I prop this guy up and he gives a performance like that. Dude, the Rookie of the Year title is yours for the taking! Simona's HVM Lead-Sled and Breadman missing the beginning of the season has left the door wide open for you. I don't care WHO your teammate is.
Yea, I sort of mailed it in this week. I kinda had to before this damn laptop crashes aga........
