Power and Newgarden had good practice times.

I'm not sure why Pagenaud and Dixon are where they are.

We will see in qualifying.

Hmm. Hunter-raey and Power are fast, but I don't see either winning.

I think Dixon and Newgarden could be on the podium, unless either/both have Powers luck!

Will the last position be taken by Rossi or Pagenaud? Or maybe Rahal?

I've got to pick........

Rahal
Newgarden
Dixon

I'm not really happy with the choices. Only half a MPH separate the top 10!

Simone could pull out a win, as could Sato.

I'll go with my list though.

Same questions for me. Rahal looked really good on track. Group 2 was really stacked though. I am picking the same guys but in a different order.

1st Newgarden
2nd Rahal
3rd Dixon

Id pick Dixon to win, but 3 in a row is very hard!

I'll be watching a bit later tonight.

The young guys had a good qualification.

I cant pull the trigger for Power or Hunter-Raey, I don't think Pato has it.

I'll hope Rahal's pit crew has figured out.

The Penske boys are weak this year, as are the Chevy's. The Honda's seem to have the power and the milage,
if they can just nail down the reliability.

Can Dixon go 4?

What the heck:

Dixon
Rahal
Herta

Peeped todays qualifications, Newgarden and Dixon are both mid pack! Maybe Rahal can pull one out of the hat today. The older guys didnt seem to be as fast today.

Somebody needs to park Power! 3 crashes in one lap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pato almost made it to the end but congrates to Rosenqvist.

An exciting race!

Team Penske is a wreck this year, that is when Power is not causing them!

Poor Graham, he was lucky not to get hurt! That was a bad crash.

I was hoping Pato could hold Felix, but nope! Not on scuffed reds. Bad call by McLaren.

I think Pato's strategist blew the race for him. Going to scuffed red's with around 20 laps on a 4 mile course.

Bad call. Ganassi's team got it right! Sticker blacks were the way to go.

I agree about the bad call on the scuffed reds.

Waiting until the end of qualifying to make my picks but Dixon and Herta sound good as a start. Whenever I pick Pagenaud, he crashes....

So just mentioning thinking about Pagenaud and his car will not start.

That session was an interesting one. Daly made a spectacular 2 lap run, but I think I am going to go with

Herta at the top, Newgarden in 2nd and Rosenqvist in 3rd

Nice race Simon!
Another race where I wasn't close.

Another very exciting race.

Nice work for the McLaren boys! The team and the drivers seem to be learning!

And what has happened in the pits!

Bad pit work caused Powers crash, and I think every round of pit stops had a few major issues!

Even the live footage of Herta's crash looked like it was in slow motion. I did notice the caution lights were flashing along the fence before he ran into the back of Veekey. Nice air though!

The pit work was dreadful for nearly everyone.

Pagenaud will probably win again if I mention I dont think he will. So, I dont think he can get lucky enough with the cautions that cost Rosenqvist a better finish to win two days in a row.

Staying with Newgarden to win but looking for O'Ward and Askew to finish 2nd and 3rd. His new haircut is worth a few more tenths a lap - Right?
