The TV director really messed that up. That was a good battle with Power and Rossi.

Kanaan off at the Kink, 2nd FCY and 10 laps to go. Well more like 7 after they remove the car.

Congrats to Dixon on his 41st IndyCar win and congrats to Ganassi and Honda. They certainly rained on Penske and Chevy's parade today. Just as well The Captain wasn't there.

I thought the race was rather dull to begin with and it took a while to get going. Maybe because they were all watching and waiting each other and a little unsure with the extended race length. I thought it might come alive after the first round of pitstops but it didn't until after the first FCY. I enjoyed the last 15 laps or so.

The director made some appalling decisions. Broke away from some tough sharp-end battles....to look at some backmarker getting dissected in the pits.

Anyway, a great win for Dixie, showin' up that Penske train.

Indycar director isn't the best. He often values watching random cars pit stops rather than an on track battle, or following a car back onto track to see where it ends up. Often the most action is when you see a car rejoin and the battle between him and those on track, whether someone got the undercut or the other way around. The director doesn't seem to understand this and always cuts away.

Good to see Dixon hand it to the dominant Penske team though. There's only 1 driver who could have beaten Penske today, if he ran a flawless race, and he did.

Finished this one late last night....

Only Takumasahn could go off at the kink and barely hit anything.

Power was Power.

Dixon was Dixon!

I missed some of the director changes, but I guess I’m used to having “non-motor racing” people directing coverage of motor races. It was much worse for the NASCAR race on the weekend.

And PT naming moves based on drivers is a little rich considering PT “Paul Tracyed” a bunch.

Entertaining race, with lots of passing and battles throughout! Always good to see IndyCars at Road America.

Taku... that was the craziest thing I've seen at the kink. He shat himself, for sure.

Dixon is so good. About half way through the race he decided it was time to lead. Once he's out front, it is over.

The visor cam was nice on ovals, but on a road course it's unreal.

I think that onboard cameras shouldn't have stabilizer. The Senna/Prost onboards were more interesting than current ones, as you see everything shaking.

I hate the crawling scorebar. They should use a vertical bar like F1 and MotoGP, or a sliding block like Nascar.

Yes. More visor cams please.

Graphics in American broadcasts are on complete overload.

The flashing of driver name with their car color background is very unnecessary and more than annoying for an indicator of whose on board camera we are viewling. The scroll of BREAKING NEWS at the bottom is very unnecessary because I have access to the world wide web.

The scroll of running order is only worthwhile if you have 30 plus competitors. Or do as you say, have a sidebar "scoring tower" with the top 20 and then the next 10 changing out.

Alas, NBCSN / ABC etc all have graphics departments that have to have something to do so they go way overboard. Just glad it's not fox and a groundhog.

Sorry, don't get me started
