=================

Alright, someone else needs to add the broadcast schedule, as it doesn't matter to me at all.

As many of you know, myself, buster hymen, Joey, and Black_Jack will be attending the race. I have media credentials for the event, and will be shooting from May 20 on. I have to add that I will be enjoying my 23rd birthday while in Indy on the 26th, shooting the Indy Lights! I will be posting here, as well as the others from the trip, along with some awesome updates, and hopefully some sweet photos.

Let the 'Most Important Race in History' commence!

Hopefully a non-Penske or Ganassi winner. Except maybe Power.

You know last year when every time there was a practice session there would be a stream to go with it...,

That's not going to happen with the new TV rules this year, is it? :?

Does Townsend Bell have a ride for this year? He does, right?

Anyway, he is capable of causing an upset. He is great at Indy.

Versus have been going on about how they are showing it all, so I guess it'll be a NO.

Well, he's still a freaking pussy. :wave:

What Do you think would be the best winner for the series?
Hunter Reay would be my guess or Rahal.

Scheckter, Briscoe or a girl.
I love May 29: Monaco GP, Indy 500 and Coca Cola 600.

Conway winning this year would be great after his huge crash last year. I know he won already at Long Beach but still.

An American driver winning would be good for the sport. Especially an Andretti.

Not sure who I personally want to win. Simona, TK, Wheldon, any of the girls or Brits... There's no one in the series that I actually dislike. Very rare!
