At least Briscoe got redemption for his by getting it in early :lol:

This proves that, yes, you CAN have a good race in a stock car at Indianapolis.

All it takes is to add a few right turns and run it clockwise, that's all.

Matt DiBenedetto deserves some credit for the race yesterday. He's the one that tested the various layouts at the track and he told NASCAR which one was the best layout for stock cars.

Because, let's be honest, the Mickey Mouse sector is balls. In any car.

They should race cars with roofs, that form a faraday cage, so that lightning isn't a danger.
Or is that one of the sciences that murricans don't believe in?

#1: pit crew members
#2: safety crews & track marshalls + officials
#3: spotters, radio announcers, TV camera operators (usually high in the air on metal platforms)
#4: fans (when there)

so even if it was safe to drive the cars, it wouldn't be safe for anyone else

I believe insurance now requires a hold in action whenever lightning strikes near a certain radius of the facility (IMSA was delayed due to this exact reason last night at Daytona, and the Champ Car Endurance race has been in a weather hold for 2 hours of their 14 hour enduro because of it today). I would be very surprised if that wasn't the case after the Pocono accident that killed a couple fans
