Well, I hate to say it, but that race was overall pretty meh, and Wickens' accident certainly did not help. But I ended up switching between it and the CWL Finals. And I am NOT much of an E-Sports fan.

With a number of the top drivers eliminated from the race because of the crash and the concerns surrounding Wickens, it always was going to be a somewhat subdued affair.

Result

Obviously not the race, race fans were hoping for. The good news is Wickens was awake and alert. As to the extent of any injuries, that waits to be seen and hopefully the outcome will be good.

Apart from Rossi's domination of the race, there were a couple of good drives from Zach Veach, who has impressed during his rookie year and from Bourdais, despite raising concerns about the repair job on the catch fencing.

Dixon's third place, means his lead is now cut to 29 points, with only 3 races to go.

1 Alexander Rossi, Andretti Autosport. Dallara/Honda. 200. 2h36m49.1128s
2 Will Power, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 200. 4.4982s
3 Scott Dixon, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 200. 41.3557s
4 Sebastien Bourdais, Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan. Dallara/Honda. 200. 42.0120s
5 Josef Newgarden, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 199. 1 Lap
6 Zach Veach, Andretti Autosport. Dallara/Honda. 199. 1 Lap
7 Marco Andretti, Andretti Herta Autosport with Curb-Agajanian. Dallara/Honda. 199. 1 Lap
8 Simon Pagenaud, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 199. 1 Lap
9 Charlie Kimball, Carlin. Dallara/Chevrolet. 198. 2 Laps
10 Ed Carpenter, Ed Carpenter Racing. Dallara/Chevrolet. 197. 3 Laps
11 Matheus Leist, A.J. Foyt Enterprises. Dallara/Chevrolet. 197. 3 Laps

I'm surprised they ran the race with the fence in the state it was. That patch job looked like it'd fold should anything substantial go near it.

I would imagine Indycar will have a look at safety of the catch fencing as the modern Indy cars go through it with ease.
Todays crash showed the car violently wrap itself around the support poles,amazing the driver got out of that.
The horizontal cables can act like a bean slicer and it was lucky the car didn't go right through the fence into the spectator area.

Finished this one last night and here's my thoughts before I read others:

Fugly start at the back and Graham is the one that finds someone else’s rear end.

Holy scary accident for Robert Wickens and holy patch job on the catch fence, which I am pretty sure is older than me. Nah, that’s only 39 in Poconos years. Was there someone’s dog gate zip tied in there? And pretty sure that I saw 3 or 4 OSHA violations from the crew doing the work, one of which being a man lifted up in the bucket a front loader…

Love the track for the speed and the old school thrills but damn! Seabass didn't like the fix but TonyK saying “we gotta race!” And he’s gonna be Paul’s personal trainer for the 500! Paul looks like he ate Leigh Duffy for lunch!!

The race really calmed down after the Wickens incident. Dominant win from Rossi. Never was a question from lap one that he was the strongest.

Looked to be a decent crowd! I hope it was! Shame they had to sit through the beginning….

Wishing the best for Robert and others injured.

Shameful. Bourdais was right.

You just had to look at what the ''repair' crew were doing.

The extra pole they brought in was just leaning against the cables.
