It's hard to read too much into what he's saying, given the entire story is based off barely a dozen words.

But it's troubling that he doesn't show any remorse at all. He told his side to Marshall Pruett last year, and it's impossible to know where the full truth is.

Over time though it's more and more clear that he knows how to steer a car, and that he's a bit of a fuckwit. I wish he didn't drive for DCR and instead drove for Foyt or something. That would be quite a match.

Only seen the highlights. Lots of drivers stung by a bad yellow it seems? Santino is a twat, happy Ed didn’t win.

Happy for Sato after the unfair vitriol he received after last week's accident. The NBCSN | Ferrucci circle-jerk continued with enthusiasm last night. Ferrucci is a dick for the move he pulled on Newgarden on the last lap. Oh to have been a fly on the wall for that conversation nee dressing down by Josef after. And while I'm a big fan of Rossi, perhaps someone should play him Newgarden's post race interview as a example of how to treat / talk about fellow drivers.

Apparently the NBCSN team also sat down with Sato and the RLL team over the weekend to discuss what was said about Sato in the booth following the incident. All I heard Leigh Diffey, Tracy and Bell say were that they told Sato to "look ahead and not think about what happened in the past". What a cop out.

NBCSN and Indycar are gonna need to work harder on the redemption arc, especially if he keeps digging himself deeper holes...

Jesus what a basket case.

Edit: The amount of love Ferruci gets in that Twitter feed proves that the NBCSN PR campaign is working.

Richmond in for 2020, announcement Tuesday. Pocono out by all accounts.

Miller reports that Gateway is lobbying to host the season finale under the lights, which would be flippin' awesome.

I actually read this book (updated for 2019) only a month ago. I may go and see this, but as it's so fresh on my mind I may skip it.

I honestly don't think it's possible to not have a pile-up in the Festival curves.

The race settled down in the second half. Dixon dropped out of the lead with a flat battery and finished three laps down, Power dominated and FFFEELLLIIIXXX BÖRKED HIS WAY TO SECOND.

Maybe they should consider skipping the Festival Curves on the first lap if the drivers continue to be incapable of driving the first lap without wrecking.

Bonehead moves from Rahal are rare, shame that cost a few drivers their races. On the other hand bonehead moves by RHR are commonplace, so pretty unsurprised. Shame for Harvey and Shank. They didn’t deserve that.
