  • Goodyear is required by Nascar to bring a soft

    tire to creat better racing!!!! Goodyear has

    harder tires that Nascar does not want to use.

  • Why does Indianapolis get a "black eye" in this? This is the same track that has always been there from day one...a rectangle with four rounded corners...and the same surface that NASCAR has raced on for two (or is it three?) races prior to this one.

    No, the track does not lend itself to the side-by-side racing that most tracks that NASCAR goes to allows. But doesn't that call upon more of driver's actual skill rather than just the raw speed of the car itself?

    This race was unfortunate and I feel sorry for the fans who paid high ticket prices and spent long times in traffic burning almost $4/gallon gasoline, but to lay this at the door of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, or saying it gets a "black eye" because of it, just isn't fair and borders on irresponsibe reporting. We can debate how much of the blame lies with NASCAR, Goodyear, or the crew chiefs themselves, but IMS has no dog in this fight!

  • That was Goodyears fault if anyone. Nothing has changed about the track from last year or the year prior. The only variable here is the type of car and the tire.

    That was the most boring race I ever had the misfortune to listen too and as a hoosier i'm livid over that tire situation.

  • I went to the so called "race". Call it anything you want but don't call it a race. I was robbed and NASCAR should refund ticket prices,
