Palou checked out and has 5 seconds on Armstrong, but then he has 11 seconds on Rahal in 3rd!

I don't know how these tires will last 20 laps in the final race. Looked like a lot of people were struggling by the end of 10.

God knows how you change the tyre saving issue other than giving everyone a new set for the last 10 laps then people would try & gain positions in the first part of the final.

Only thing id change is the restarts. Move to double file for the event.


I feel like this event would be much better with crowds, music, some kinda atmosphere. I’m genuinely really surprised by how little “show” there has been.

Well after RLL making all 3 of their cars to the main event, 2 of them won't be starting the 2nd half. Rahal has a mechanical issue and Fitti was dq'd for not following indycar orders

Herta could end up on podium but it looks like Palou is just in another league.

Just catching up, Colton screwed up everyone there at the start getting out of line and drew Dixie wide and his attention. Was awkward at best, stupid at worst

DCR looks like they are doing a Brawn throwback inspired livery on Siegel's car

Was surprised they actually went the full heat without a commercial but the caution helped I guess.

A tyre change rather than refuel during “half time” but this from a very limited number of tyre sets for qualification, heat race and final

Need to tidy up the end of the first section there was no flag to indicate end of that section.

Field takes a yellow on completing Lap 10, slowing up by T3 and return to the pits at a set speed.

Heat 2 Blomqvist driving like he's in a tin top, terrible lines through corners and treated like the cheating nut job he was driving like by Rossi and OWard. Neither will forget that this season so he's already on the back foot

Kiffin not looking too bad in the car

Track needs more elevation badly, interesting but like Utah minimal change looks dull. The hump on the back is only character change

More like how daft the Herta and Andretti "strategy" calls are, when was the last time they actually worked. Oh, that's right it's RARE as hen's teeth lately. MSR has been better with off strategy calls and they've run out of fuel multiple times.

Cause that's literally NOT what the owners wanted, they wanted a very very very restricted event and then only later realized that wasn't gonna work. Hence the Million Dollar name but not actually gonna get a million bucks even though half was going to an owner not the driver.

Not unless some spotted him 500k, the race only pays out 500k to the driver. The name was ALWAYS bull excrement, 500k to driver, 500k to owner who was associated with the driver.

Result for the $1 Million Challenge

I felt somewhat underwhelmed by the $1 Million Challenge. IndyCar needs to sort out a few things regarding the format, like the half-time break and especially the tyre situation.

There's just under a month to go before Long Beach. It's a slow start to the season.

flatlandsman should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I am not over keen on having massive wealth shoved down my throat at a place like this, i saw the entry requirements for fans, no coolers, I mean what the hell is this!

It is basically like an exclusive golf club buying a series with an event, that means nothing apart from money

At least with f1 they buy a race for their money not a gimmick. it is very erm American.

And the format did not really work did it.
