RaceFreak should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Brian Herta and the "chrome horn"

Infinion is an awful place for high-torque open wheel racing. A bit like Hungaroring; narrow, no passing opportunities. I don't remember a single pass for position on the track. Total parade if not for bone-head Briscoe. You could just FEEL the frustration in Herta's cockpit as he was trapped behind Matsura lap after lap. Twice he got his nose up under Matsura's gearbox in an attempt to punt him off (before the inevitable happened). It was the singular most entertaining part of the race....

If the IRL wants to go road racing, do it in a place like Cleveland; with 300 foot wide corners and long straights with wide braking zones.

I love Infineon for bikes, but open wheel cars.....nope!
