Are you referring to this year? Or in general. If this year, Sato wrecked on the last lap, you couldn't red flag it.

Pretty exciting race, was pulling for Power. Everything seemed to go Hunter Reay's way the last 50 laps of the race, all the cars that seemed to wreck were on the lead lap and for the most part of the race, faster then RHR, Briscoe, Tagliani, Kanaan, Sato and Pagenaud having trouble.

Great season, every race aside from Detroit was very good this season.

I was talking in general. If they do it from now on, I'd have no problem with it. But if they wanted to implement it, they should have started it next season.

That was a fun finale to the season. RHR is a deserving champion and Ed gets his 2nd career win, with his own team no less. I was gutted for Power. Though it was a lot of fun seeing RHR try to gain points to take the title last night.

I'd like to see it work out up there, whether it be at Providence or at Loudon. The Series needs a NE presence.

Two things were going against the Edmonton race.... 1. The city wants to raize that airport and sell the land. 2. No title sponsor

So RB said Providence "ran out of time"... What's the rush?

It had a layout, a proposed date, a promoter and supposedly a title sponsor. People up here are really confused at how Providence is not on the schedule.

since when does Providence have a track? the only track I've heard of is the temporary one inside the Dunkin Donuts Center.. IF nobody made NHMS A success for Indycar, I can see why no New England race..... surprised Baltimore IS BACK, now how do you fix the issues they had there w/ the Railroad track, and Belle Isle was breaking up also

I'll do some digging into the proposed Providence race and see what I can find.

BTW...Texas is the ABC Prime Time race. My personal at-track coverage schedule looks like St. Pete, Barber, Indy, Texas, Baltimore, Houston.

Randy got burned on China, so I think he's playing a little harder now with these sorts of things.

So... anyone want to touch on the latest developments about Tony George's latest attempt at a coup to take over the series?

I hate that guy. So much.

I hate to say it, but I can't help but thinking where there's smoke there's fire. In this case, I think its no different. Every time something positive goes on with the series, all of the sudden we get these takeover rumors...

Between the NHL and IndyCar, is it too much to ask for one of these sports to keep from shooting itself in the foot?

Bernard officially canned. Guess I'm out too guys. It was fun while it lasted, but this is the second time the sport has walked out on me, and I doubt it wins me back a second time.

I'm interviewing Tony Kanaan out at Barber during a testing session tomorrow. Anybody got any questions for him?
