Hinch replaces Veach at Andretti.

Helio will drive Askew's McLaren car for this weekend. Askew has "concussion like symptoms".

Sage Karem will be driving Dreyer.

Looks like next years schedule is in flux.

The worst kept secret in IndyCar, A 3rd engine supplier looks to be in the works.

Kellet is still racing, and Bourdais Is also.

Anyway, I'll be traveling again this weekend so I'll watch them later in the week.

As of now, I'll go with.

Race 1

Newgarden
Herta
Dixon

Race 2

Power
Dixon
Bourdais

Ok, Seb is a long shot, but I figure he has something to prove.

I figure Dixon is not going to take any chances, All he has to do is finish close to Newgarden.

Mine picked it up but dont know if I will see the end - didnt add the next block. It's toy show weekend for us today so I havent been paying attention to practice or qualifications. So I guess I will go with the old previous picks of Dixon, Newgarden and then Huerta for both races.

I just finished!

Some good racing. I didn't think Power had it in him.

Yeah! Not sure what happened to let him win - let alone finish. Dixon really was off in both in races. Might be time to go back and pick up Rossi again for St Pete though.

It will be interesting to see what Liberty Media can due for Meyer Shank and eventually Indycar itself.

I think you are on to something, Rossi could take St. Pete.

The LM news was interesting, Meyer Shank can use the cash. Maybe LM can learn about competition from IndyCar and bring that to F1.

So, I was just reviewing the season so far.
After 3 Dixon wins to start, it's a heck of a lot closer than I expected. Has Dixon just been playing things safe?

Newgarden has 3 wins and 3 poles to Dixon's 4 wins.

I can't see how Herta can win the series, but Newgarden sure can.

My money is still on Dixon. Unless I'm wrong, as long as Dixon finishes in the top 10 Newgarden can't win.

My wife and I considered going to the St. Pete race, Every time we go to the finale Dixon wins. Hello Ganassi racing, want to send the team plane for us?

The practice session was good for the Honda's.

Askew is back, Helio is out. McLaughlin is racing for Penske, Sato is back with RLL next year.

The computer had a qualifying glitch. It looks like Herta is fast.

My DVR is showing a sesssion scheduled for 7 PM central time but I think it is the same as this afternoon - only delayed. Barrett Jackson, World Series, Indy Car and catching up on F1 Session. Plus Mrs Fox has a new Hallmark Christmas movie scheduled for this evening....

Remember when you were the remote for the one TV!

You did better than me!

It was a crazy race. 2020 is done.

With all the issues this year I think IndyCar ended up salvaging the season.

My DVR went wack this time so I havent see the end of the race yet....

Power tried to go out on lap 7 then 8 then 24 and finally 34. Wasnt expecting Rossi to crash though.

It was Newgarten in front and Dixon in 3rd but as crazy as the race was so far....

With all the yellows it went long, my DVR missed the end, but luckily we were watching live so I saw the end.

Pato has a future in IndyCar! That kid is racy! Sato knocked 2 out.

My wife loved it when Rossi crashed out, she hates him. It was his race to win. I'm still not sure what he did, but that corner caught a few yesterday. I'll have to rewatch, but I think thats where Power crashed out.

Overall lots of good racing.

Did you ever get to see the end?

Youtube has worked for me in the past.

I went back and checked, Rossi and Power went out at turn 3/4 area.
