This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Wheldon has taken the lead through 7/8--


then Dixon, Tony Kanaan, and a surprsing THomas Scheckter moves into 4th!  Briscoe is in 5th, then Helio, then Danica, then Marco Andretti!

Quick yellow flag--Bruno Junqueira had a mirror fall off.

I think something like this happened last year--everyone pits, makes a quick adjustment and is back out.

lol--Bruno Junqueira stayed out, I think just to be first for a lap or two as much as anything.  He will have to go in to reattach that mirror, I'm almost certain of it.

Sarah Fisher spun, and is being towed into the pits.  She should be just fine and back out soon.

Bruno Junqueira is in getting his mirror back on.  

Thank goodness its under yellow.  You dont win the race in the first laps.


With a roar, Sarah Fischer is back out!

Buddy Rice is leading on the current caution lap!  (Not for long, but he's a former winner.  Good to see him out there).  Justin Wilson is #2, but neither went to the pits.

That was cool.

Justin Wilson is running strong!!!

Rice is hanging in there, though--he doesn't have the fastest car, but he can definitely drive.

Wheldon and Dixon are the class of the field so far--pulling away a bit.

Wow!  Justin Wilson just reeled 'em in!

He and Buddy Rice will have to pit soon--they need to pray for a yellow flag.

Yep, WIlson and Rice pit.  They'll drop some spots, both good runs so far for both--neither were considering front-runners, but they've looked good.

Danica has jumped up to 7th!

Ed Carpenter is 8th!!

Ryan Briscoe's car had a bad vibration, had to pit.  He's dropped back to 31st momentarily.

CONTACT!!!!

Graham Rahal, has nailed the wall on Lap 37.

Caution/yellow is out.  I'm surprised no one else got tagged.

That's a bummer.

Danica had some pit trouble--she comes out in 13th.

Here's a rundown of the Top 20, circa Lap 42:
