INDYCAR: Friday Pre-Race Preview (Mid-Ohio)

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...........

Okay, according to my calendar today is Friday.  That means I must post one of these things as a preview to the upcoming race.  Usually I do that, but this week is a bit different.  It's 3rd down and I'm sending in the punt coverage team.  Why?

Mid-Ohio.

It's not what you would call an exciting racetrack.  There's not too many places where an Indycar can pass cleanly.  Also Will Power racing on a road-course having serious motivation to close the gap in the championship battle usually means one thing: The Kangaroo-Hop will most likely be in full effect this Sunday.

See?  There isn't much to preview for the upcoming race.  Mid-Ohio has never been a race much of us fans look forward to.  The races are generally dull and the only hope for excitement is the two-wide restarts which will most likely get screwed up considering how short the front-stretch is and if it rains on Sunday (forecast is sunny...damn).  Only one thing made Mid-Ohio interesting to watch last year (I miss that livery, and I wonder who that "certain slow car" was).

Sorry for the lack of effort.  Don't worry...next time is NEW FREAKING HAMPSHIRE.
