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.

Marco Andretti is moving up!  The Indiana Jones car is in 4th!

John Andretti is running solidly in 14th.

Battle for the lead!

Right now, Wheldon can't get past Dixon.

Down the rushy glen,
We daren't go a-hunting
For fear of little men.

We are 1/4 done!

AJ Foyt IV is GETTING BACK IN THE RACE!!!!!

They had to get a new helmet, because the old one was full of Fire Extunguisher.

I have to say, there are surprising names moving up the field!  The top 5 aren't too much of a surprise, but there's a lot of very competitive folks right there!

Uh oh.  Marty Roth smacks the wall, right where Graham Rahal did.  That's it for him.

Helio Castroneves took some nose damage, but is still out there.  


Mario Moraes has been told to contact the Director's Channel. That means tech issue or rules issue, most likely.

We'll see who's in first after this pit.  AJ Foyt IV, Junqueira, Moraes, and 1 or 2 others stay out.

What happened to my fella!

He was off-sequence for pit stops.  He's back up to 13th right now, and has looked good today.

If you guys need any questions answered about your drivers, I have a lot of live feeds, radio coverage, and online guides going here.  Lemme know.

Yeah, here.  Click on the link for "Live Timing And Scoring"

EDIT:  Manning, Fisher, making another pit.  Sarah Fisher had some issues today.  Darren Manning was running strong, and his car looks good today.
