Bella- he's an established star of the IRL hehe ("I-R what?")

How about p23? Doh!

And i know you shouldn't read too much into one qualifying session, but wasn't Casey Mears going to be the next big thing?

Little Al, it's time to retire when you are beaten by a girl!

P.S. Sarah Fisher is a very good racer and I wish her a successful race.

Crash, an "Established Star" and "IRL" are mutually exclusive terms.

Go Sarah!

I don't know much about IRL, but Casey Mears surely must drive the equivalent to Minardi in this series?!?

Galles are a decent team, Unser won a race with them last year. I think the G-Force and Dallara are pretty closely matched as far as chassis go.

Well, that was not a race for the ages.

Gil was 'sandwiched' by two IRLers when he was just in the lead of the race and heading for the pits (the commentator I heard said the guy in front was not paying attention!) and Helio has blown up.

When I turned it off, about six other people had either blown up or caught fire (Sarah Fisher was on fire).

So there you go.

I think I also noticed that Little Al was lapped twice.

Is this 'Pheonix' some kind of a race?

Phoenix once upon a time was a really good Cart race- for a 1 mile bull ring it's incredibly fast, it was probably the first short oval with a lap record under the 20 second mark (and iirc, it was Our Paul who first broke it). It used to put on some great racing...much better than some of the dud ovals that Champ Cars race on these days..

I didn't watch it very closely, but it was funny to hear all those names I thought were gone forever.

Apparently it is now being said that Gil turned in too late on his way to the pits and he was the one who caused the 3 car pileup. If anyone can find a press release or write up about this race, would you post the URL?

A full report of the IRL race can be found at http://rpm.espn.go.com/rpm/seriesIndex?series=irl . Also, Jeret Schroder is an idiot. He ran into the back of deFerran when Gil was clearly on the apron of the track attempting entering the pit. He then tried to blame deFerran for the accident. You have to be awake to drive a racecar, Jeret!

Thanks, and welcome SevenGrain! The local paper was very despising about Penske ("Penske Flops in IRL Opener" is their headline). Nice to read something that tells me what actually happened.

Not including the Cart drivers, I honestly have not heard of anymore than 5 of those racers.

I tried the Pheonix circuit in Indycar 2. It is actually the most fun of the mile ovals. However, I found it very tight, and rather hard to pass, except at the first corner under braking. Still, more fun than any short oval on the current Cart track. You come so close to those walls, at such high speeds. It is as if you are about to have 3 big crashes every lap, and you just barely get by every time. Excellent!

Phoenix is an excellent track, and when in was a CART event prior to 1996, the grandstands were always full. Now there are more empty seats than full. One of the best CART races ever was held at Phoenix in 1993. Nigel Mansell and Paul Tracy traded the lead several times at high speed in heavy traffic. Mansell won and Tracy ended up in the wall. Now aerodynamic restrictions on the short ovals ( The Hanford MkII) make that type of racing nearly impossible.
