champcarman should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Kimball involved in two incidents, both seemingly "racing incidents". Rahal appeared to drift wide into Kimball but I feel Charlie was a bit to blame for the Power crash. A bit of patience would have been OK. But I am an Aussie so perhaps I am biased. If only WP had not missed St Pete?

No good. Twas a hard lick and I hope he recovers quickly.

I can see this perspective through Aussie shaded lenses. Kimball could've easily lifted and Power could've given room. Neither has ever done either.

I don't know, it seemed more like Kimball just drove into the back of Power because he didn't want to lift off. I wouldn't have said that he was far alongside at all and was a bit annoyed that he got a decent finish out of it.

Great race though, but would be nice if there were a few more tyres in front of some of the barriers, particularly the corner where Aleshin's tyre exploded.

Hope that Power is better in time for the next race, he's been driving really well this year but his health just hasn't gone his way.

Some drivers did a splash and go with good results, like Hťlio.

The situation happened because of the last yellow's timing. Had it been four laps later, drivers would have gone full throttle.

I agree. Kimball gave Rahal as much room as possible. Rahal went unnecessarily wide.

That section is very fast. When Kimball got close to Power's left, Power should have gone left, even if he was just in front of Kimball.

But also Kimball kept throttling when Power was closing the gap. If he had lifted, Power could have got a penalty for blocking.

I am so happy to see Ganassi and Dixon getting a win before the Target sponsorship deal ends

I just want to know how Power and Kimball managed to get into each other and the other drivers managed to get by the corner without crashing

I thought it was a great day for Montoya before the spin, and the recovery from the start of the day after the first corner collision was a good one for him and his spin really ruined it for him in the last stages of the race

I love the way Pageneud is not feeling the pressure of the title, he should be able to get the title

Unless Dixon wins again and he could, The Glen might be the last time we saw a Ganassi car with the Target livery win an IndyCar race.

They both felt the need to push the issue, which both have a history of doing. Everyone else managed to work together on the fastest "turn" all day; not these two.
