So someone forgot to open that window over Terre Haute and it's a bit damp out at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway right now.

What does this mean? It means that now I have a captive audience for Haiku Tuesday!!! I can totally see this blowing up like the 1979 Daytona 500 and making me popular making me relevant inflating my ego.

(Ed. note: We have it on good authority that people who matter in the sport have elected to go play hopscotch in the puddles around Gasoline Alley rather than read Pop Off Valve. Just sayin'.)

Hit the jump for this week's (rapidly mildewing) poetry...

Cloudy, chance of rain.
How often does this happen??
Ah... all the time, then?

Vision got Fuzzy.
Zoeller, that is. He's on board.
Eddie's back... in black!

Where's Tom Carnegie?
I miss hearing his vocals.
Like, "Aaaaaand he's on it!"

Twenty million bucks.
That money is buzzworthy.
So fix the race times!

Track feed at Indy.
Even during rain delays,
More fun than Dover.

Today's 500s
Cars run closer than ever,
But harder to pass.

If Graham wrecks out,
How does Bobby punish him?
Ground him for a month?

NASCAR claims credit
For Indy safety measures?
Who cares? We have them.

Not "Back Home" this year.
I'm hundreds of miles away.
