Weather is looking good for the race. A chance of storms Sunday, well after the race ends Saturday night. It will be breezy though, with south winds at 15-20 mph, gusting up to 30 mph.

Interesting tweet from @IMS – “The average qualifying speed for the field today was 229.382mph. That makes this the fastest field in #Indy500 history!”
Weather forecast looks great for Indy 500 weekend.

Although there have been rain showers affecting the last few days of practice, the weather looks good for qualifying weekend.21st April 2014, 13:51 at 1:51 pm #257791
The weather for Barber is looking good. Just a slight chance of afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms Friday and Saturday, with high temperatures around 80.9th April 2014, 14:15 at 2:15 pm #256105
The weather for GPLB looks pretty good. A bit on the cool side, with some morning fog and clouds through the day. But all races should be dry.1st April 2014, 9:00 at 9:00 am #254938
I thought this was great – Hulk eats McDonald’s, isn’t obsessed with weight loss. Good for him.31st January 2014, 16:09 at 4:09 pm #248170
France basically says that casual fans are too stupid to understand point racing, even though the system worked great since NASCAR’s inception and through its rise in popularity:
“‘Secondly, we want to make competing and running for a championship much simpler to understand’…France also said that casual fans (and drivers) don’t understand point racing, which will be de-emphasized with the new format.”31st January 2014, 4:00 at 4:00 am #248168
This is a really good article by Bob Pockrass on the problems this new Chase format could cause for NASCAR officials:
If you enjoyed garage fist fights, intentional wrecks, over-aggressive driving, officials determining race results through penalties, and cheating teams, you’ll love the new format.
This is the continued “NASCARization” of NASCAR. It’s become a joke.14th January 2014, 17:13 at 5:13 pm #247718
@steevkay “I think it’s difficult to make a really comprehensive racing movie without making it a multi-part series or just really long to begin with.”
You’re exactly right, and that, I think, is the problem with this movie. It tries to be a comprehensive racing movie, with an underlying theme of safety. It would have been much better if it had been more focused on the safety aspects of F1. A positive aspect of both Rush and Senna is that they both focused on a narrow topic. “1” doesn’t seem to have any specific focus, and wanders from topic to topic.7th October 2013, 11:26 at 11:26 am #242800
Chinese GP trophy is nice -
But a giant Panda would be epic.7th October 2013, 5:43 at 5:43 am #2427966th October 2013, 20:53 at 8:53 pm #242793
Wow, now THAT is a bad trophy! I saw a picture of that while doing Google searches for trophies, and I though it was a joke or a photoshop job. What race was that from?6th October 2013, 11:43 at 11:43 am #242766
@fer-no65 If by “not up to standard” you mean it doesn’t meet FIA standards with huge asphalt run-off areas and gravel traps at every corner, then yes, it is not up to standard. However, VIR is a beautiful track that produces great racing.6th October 2013, 11:21 at 11:21 am #242786
Agreed @force-maikel – a classic track like Spa ought to be giving out better trophies than this:
