I would say overall it was a good season but not a great season. The UAK threw a few unexpected curves. It produced a great season opener at St. Pete but in contrast the 500 was somewhat lack luster, with the rest of the season being a bit of a mixed bag. However, hats off to IndyCar for at least trying to improve the racing, from both the driver's, fan's and team's perspectives. Hopefully with the off-season, IndyCar and Dallara can take what they've learned and make the necessary changes to the IR-18.

The downer was obviously Wicken's accident. Both he and SPM showed they were more than capable of challenging the top three teams and it was Wicken's rookie year. I think next season, they would have been up there.

Anyway, looking forward to next year and seeing what improvements have been made to the car, plus two different venues being added to the calendar, with return of Laguna Seca and COTA replacing Phoenix, though I would like to see one more oval. Of course there is the big question as to whether Alonso will be competing next year.

Absolutely agree. If anyone was not impresssedm by IndyCar in 2018 then I want to see if they have a pulse! The best racing Series on the planet.

Just wrapped this up. Good for Dixie. Rossi shot himself in the foot at the start but holy smokes, what a drive and effort to make it interesting but just wasn't enough. Scott looks like he didn't break a sweat! What an incredible driver. Glad that I've watched him over the years.

That was a good season, and not coz I'm biased. It's refreshing to see a world tier open wheel championship so competitive.

Even good news from Sonoma's ratings looks bad compared to even F1, remembering that it was on early morning, it seems. Although up 100k is a good percentage for them and better than NASCAR's dip, but still half of a mid day Monday delayed race. From Racer.com:

The*Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series*playoffs opened Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas, earning a 1.3 rating and averaging 2.1 million viewers. Thatís down a tick from last yearís playoffs opener held at Chicagoland Speedway on the same weekend, which scored a 1.4/2.3m.

The NASCAR race led directly into the championship finale for the*Verizon IndyCar Seriesfrom Sonoma, early Sunday evening for East Coast viewers on NBCSN. The telecast scored a 0.38 rating and averaged 629,000 viewers, an increase from last yearís 0.33/528,000, also on NBCSN.

The*NASCAR Xfinity Series*race from Las Vegas scored a 0.49/832,000 late Saturday afternoon on NBCSN. Last yearís race on this weekend (again from Chicagoland rather than Vegas) scored a 0.53/807,000.

Meanwhile, NBCSN earned 1.24 million viewers for last Mondayís postponed Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis. Last yearís race ó which started on its scheduled Sunday in July and on the NBC broadcast network rather than NBCSN ó averaged 5.6m viewers.

Formula 1*was back in action under the lights in Singapore, and posted a fairly typical rating for its early morning time slot ó a 0.32 ó and averaged 469,000 viewers. Last year on NBCSN, this race had a 0.28/450,000.

Road and street races were even better than last year, but most oval races have been very boring.

It's a long off season, with the season opener at St. Pete on March 10, so plenty of time to sort out the UAK, regarding ovals.

Haven't been following NASCAR so wasn't aware that Penske got the 500th win. Rarely (never?) root for Penske to win because he wins so often, but have huge respect for him. I remember him best as the first member from another team to come up and ask about "my" driver's condition after a tire failure at MIS, which ultimately resulted in the postponement of the race.


Glad the 500th win came in NASCAR as that series was perhaps his toughest nut to crack.

Was that in 1985 and the driver Bobby Rahal?

Yes. Mid 80s were scary times at MIS. In '84 Al Holbert ran into the back of Bob when Bob braked to avoid an accident in front. Al's car was fitted with "speedway" brakes, and they just weren't powerful enough to slow the car. Steve Horne had words with Johnny Capels (he and Horne were friends - on most days) about the brakes. We ran normal road course brakes everywhere. We had a hell of a time just getting that car into the trailer after the race. The most miserable racing weekend that I can remember for multiple reasons. The tub ended up in the dumpster. Sad day for me as it was my first Indy 500 car. Our Snap On dealer fished the tub out and took it home. Snap On dealers are smarter than race car mechanics.



Pretty sure '84 was the year that Chip and Al Jr. touched in the back stretch and tumbled endlessly, with Chip hitting the inside wall. Believe he raced again after that but the accident was pretty much the end of his driving.


As to 1985: I think we were at or very near the top of the lap times when the tire let go. I don't remember if it was "my" car or my team mate's car, just the sick feeling that resulted.



Back to the original point in the previous post: I don't know of anyone in motor racing that I respect more than Roger Penske. That said, hope to see Coyne, RLL, or SPM win the championship next year.

I forgot to give congratulations to Dixie! ...I'm sure he's been wondering about the delay.

A great Indycar season and great prospects for next year.
