Man! I hate it for the Mayor but that's what makes this year so much more interesting than recent years. I wouldn't have been able to watch but I completely missed it today was Bump Day. I guess until this year there hasn't been such a thing in a while!

I get that this is how it works, and that bump-day drama is part of the show, but come on now. A double-points event and a full-season entrant doesn't get to run? How about letting all the full-season drivers run and let the one-offs bump each other.

Yeah yeah, I know, that would make single-race sponsorship harder since there would be less likelihood of one-offs qualifying. But seriously, losing a big chunk of fan base because one of the most popular drivers in the series gets caught out by circumstances (including waiting on one of those one-offs to qualify)? That doesn't seem like a good plan for a series that is perennially worrying about growing its fan base to the previous glory-years levels.

Guess I'll cheer for Oriol Servia then...

That isn't what the Indianapolis 500 is about. It's about the fastest 33 - not the fastest full timers.

Think about how we all view the 1997 500? That didn't do anything positive for Indycar

Except it isn’t. Hinchcliffe will race as the team will pull another driver out. Perhaps Harvey as the weakest, although Howard could lose out instead.

I would certainly support that rule. it would encourage more teams to race full-time.
