    HOLY ****!


    And Franchitti just won it. Red Flagged 12 laps in. Not good.

    Wheldon is hurt badly. Lifeline is on site.

    This is not good for Wheldon. Prayers would be in order...

    Tarping his car is not a good sign.

    They covered Wheldon's car with a tarp and took it away. The entire top was cut off by the impact.

    This is not good. It make me think there were things in the car they did not want anyone to see.

    Honestly I don't think I've ever seen a wrecked race car tarped when it doesn't involve a fatality. Hopefully, I just saw a situation where that wasn't the case.

    I hope your right... I think... Because I'm pretty sure Wheldon was the only serious injury. But as someone that has watched a lot of racing this has all the signs of not being a good situation.

    Wheldon is the only one who has been airlifted out. JR and Pippa being sent by ambulance with dizzyiness.

    Definitely the worst I've seen since Krosnoff's fatal accident at Toronto 96. Hoping we don't have similar results.

    The drivers are all heading in to the ops trailer. Looks like they are gonna call it.

    Agreed about Krosnoff's accident. This is definitely the worst looking since that. Hope Wheldon is able to recover.

    I suspect they are getting first word on Wheldon's condition... Unless the drivers/teams have rebeled against running this track and initiated the meeting themselves...

    Yeah, Will had some lower back pain. They might as well call the race at this point. I don't think anyone is in the mood to race at least until we know something concrete on Dan.

    They are patching the track. Does that mean they plan to race on it today? Don't see a reason to patch it right now otherwise.

    So, what's the real issue here? Too many cars? Too much speed? Track too short? Combination?

    Andretti speaking the truth right now. Put driver's with their mindset against each other, it doesn't matter if the prize is 5 cents or 5 million they dont' want to lose to that other guy.

    Yes. And I would add "spec" cars that contribute to all of the above by making pack racing basically mandatory. There is no separation. I hope the new car/engines make this a bad memory.

    Too much downforce. Not enough horsepower. Makes the track 'easy' to drive (a track like the cookie cutter 1/5mi high banks I should add). Also, makes passing hard and encourages pack racing and desperate moves. Keeps cars bunched up for long stretches.

    Add in cars that you know will be fast in the race starting deeper in the pack because a slight miss on qualifying setup or run puts you back. But good teams have setups and drivers able to race just fine. And then (not that this had anything to do with the accident) but Wheldon being required to start last regardless of qualifying speed should be discussed. I guess technically, it did have something to do with things because if he'd started where he q'ed then it changes everything else. But it's not like he caused the wreck coming thru the field.
