2013 Grand Prix of Baltimore Presented by SRT - IZOD IndyCar Series

Post by crl on Wed Aug 28, 2013 5:23 pm

After the controversial race at Sonoma, the IndyCars head to the tight streets of Baltimore for the third running of a race whose pit lane is located in Turns 7 and 8 because of there being no room on the frontstretch.

Scott Dixon's penalty set back his charge to Helio Castroneves's title hopes, with now 39 points separating the Brazilian from the Aussie-born Kiwi.

Ryan Hunter-Reay won this race last year to officially make it between he and Will Power for the title in Fontana, and we all remember what happened there.

Stefan Wilson, Justin's younger brother, makes his debut this weekend in the 18 car.

After this race, the next race weekend will be the doubleheader in Houston...in early October.

And if somebody spins out in front of a big pack of cars heading into the tight hairpin that is Turn 3, play this:

Well, hopefully the gigantic bumps that gave cars air time last year are mostly gone now.

Anyways, I hope Stefan does well in his chance in the 18.

Is it just me, or does this race feel like it's turning into the east coast version of Long Beach?

You're not the first person to say that, Jon Beekhuis made that observation in 2011... and frankly he's nailed it.

If you didn't see it, here's what brought out the red flag as soon as the green flag dropped in the ALMS race:


And here's the flagman's view of it all...sort of:

Graham Rahal is absolutely worthless. Easily could have avoided that if he wasn't a tool.

DaMN, that was some good racing. Despite the three parking lots that happened during this race, all of which Graham Rahal was an idiot at some point or another, this race was phenomenal. This is just a small indicator of how good IndyCar is right now. Good win, Pagenaud.

The Grand Prix of Baltimore gets an 9.0/10.

That race was hilarious. Parking lot parties and stuff.

Pagenaud wins by being the cleanest car of the day and the entire top 8 makes me pretty happy.

Both Indycar and Trucks did not disappoint.

Ok, I didn't catch that quote.

Ok then, have a great driver slap the shit out of Graham, to put some talent in him, and someone slap Bobby Rahal upside his bald head, to knock some common racing sense into him

That was Bourdais's race on so many different occasions and he kept getting put into the wall or turned around.

Graham Rahal is an asshat, I don't think much more needs to be said about that.
