Mikhail... Aleshin..... scored....... a......... podium..........................

On an infinitely brighter note good drive for Pagenaud as well. Hopefully he can find his rhythm again coming off this win and finish the season stronger, I wouldn't mind seeing him win the championship Smile

Also, I just want to say that even though I'm guilty of wrecking people on restarts, being that overly ambitious and wrecking the third place car is inexcusable on Rahal's part, especially when he's wrecked people like that before. And then he said during the pre-race for today's race, "People who make comments don't know what they're talking about." You wrecked someone under yellow, what's not to be understood?

Comments like what - the only reason he still has a ride is because his daddy is his boss? Because any fool will tell you that's true. He needs to shut the hell up and start actually being consistent, because as long as he continues to drive like this, people are going to keep talking. And Bobby needs to stop making excuses for him. This is a team that won Indy just a decade ago when Buddy Rice had one of the best Month of Mays ever. And Bryan Herta was one of the few drivers who could actually challenge Alex Zanardi in '97, '98.

I may have the same opinion on Marco, because he's in a car that's clearly built to win but doesn't do so, and is overshadowed by a much more capable teammate (RHR), but at least his inability to win is because he isn't fast enough when he needs to be, not because he drives like an idiot.

I love Robin Miller, but I can't wait to see his pathetic defense of Graham in this week's Mailbag.

I think Rahal was generally referring to all the people talking shit about him after he did something stupid. And I'll tell you what, I have to side with those people. Rahal's done this kind of shit before but never has it been this bad. And what makes it worse is that he won't even own up to it. His excuse was, "Were were going to pass [Kanaan] anyways." That said, he deserves the shit he's getting.

I had another sleepless night and wound up sleeping through the first Houston race, but I listened to the second one. It was kind of a crashfest, but a good race none the less. Good win Pagenaud, and shoutout to the Ruskie Mikhail Aleshin for finishing P2. Wink

Well, day 2 sure was a crashfest. However, there was definitely some great racing in between those wrecks. Congrats to Schmidt and Co. on the 1, 2 finish today.

Maybe if Graham doesn't want people ripping on him, maybe he should stop driving like a total toolbag
