Holy crap. I'm older than Ed! Thx to Takumasan and the 2 smiling Brasilians, I'm still hopeful for my seat in 2019. Just need to shed about 70 pounds and grow MUCH larger attachments.

These Indycar drivers are getting younger, but it doesn't matter. Taku still as driven as ever, and plenty of names up there, but can anyone beat Newgarden? Indycar is on a high at the moment

It really is. There are 10 legitimate title contenders in the field. And they're pretty much all likable, which isnt the case in every series.

Why did they have to mess with the indy 500 qualifying procedure? It was so easy; 2-weekends, or 2-day is plenty, pole the first and locked in positions unless bumped, Sunday bump the slowest until 33, and each car gets 3 attempts. Now it's a complete cluster ****. What a joke....Now you have to basically qualify 6-times (not really, be could be)....Stupid!

Maybe they just felt it was time for a change. Anyway I see no problem with it. All the drivers seem to be coping

Schmidt and Andretti have two strong drivers each.

Dixon, Bourdais, Kanaan and Rahal are strong contenders too.

Nikki Katz should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
So will Harvey or Howard be parked as a result of this?

That's rather ironic for Hinchcliffe. He got pole in 2016, after having withdrawn from the race in 2015 because of that horrendous accident.

The track don’t seem to be helping anyone who wanted to improve.

And Hinchcliffe was unlucky with his vibration.

Probably the question is: who would Schmidt rather have in the field: Harvey, Howard or Hinchliffe?

It wouldn't be the first time one of the 'extra' cars was parked to make way for his teammate.
