Barber never really striked me as, exciting. To be honest, I think it is oneof te most boring Indycar race of the season. The track has alot of fast sweeping corners, and few passing oppritunities.

Surprisingly no one posted the starting grid, so I guess I'll do that again. Anyways, Helio Castroneves won the pole, his first since Japan 2010, beating out James Hinchcliffe, who is on a surprisingly good qualifying streak.

Row 1
#3-Castroneves
#27-Hinchcliffe

Row 2
#9-Dixon
#14-Conway

Row 3
#4-Hildebrand
#11-Kanaan

Row 4
#5-Viso
#38-Rahal

Row 5
#12-Power (Who actually set the track qualifying record in Round 1, but failed to make it past Round 2)
#77-Pagenaud

Row 6
#28-Hunter-Reay (Who spun and stalled on track in Round and could not put down a lap)
#2-Briscoe (Also did not put down a lap in Round 2)

Row 7
#26-Andretti
#8-Barrichello

Row 8
#67-Newgarden
#15-Sato

Row 9
#7-Bourdais
#10-Franchitti Shocked

Row 10
#18-Wilson
#19-Jakes

Row 11
#78-de Silvestro
#83-Kimball

Row 12
#98-Tagliani
#20-Carpenter

Row 13
#6-Legge
#22-Servia

it's been a long time since i've heard talk of putting "scuffed" tires on during pitstops in any series. It's kinda cool that that has come back

Good Indycar race once again. Tons of passing unlike what Jenna Fryer wants you to believe.

She's an ugly NASCAR hag who gets put on the IndyCar scene by the AP, not by choice.

If you can win a race at Barber from 9th on the grid, that's one helluva job. Good win, Will Power.

Awesome race. New car is giving us some good racing, gotta love it. Was better than 99.9% of the NASCAR race there, lol

After collecting my thoughts from that derpfest I saw at Martinsville, the race (and coverage) overall was very good. IndyCar drivers looked like true professionals out there the way everyone was racing each other clean, with no assists too. The new Race Director is really showing a huge impact on the racing and it is sure paying off.

The coverage from NBCSN was MUCH better than what ESPN showed at St. Petersburg. Like Formula 1, I think IndyCar is in for one hell of a season.

^This

I can't believe all of the side by side action I saw yesterday, all of it clean hard racing. If this is a hint of what's to come, 2012 will be one of the best seasons in recent years. I'm interested to see what happens with the aero package. I'd love to see Lola, Swift and possibly some in-house work out there.
