I'm not sure, Typically some are.

I'll see what I can find out.

I guess they are following the same 2 or 3 week schedule of events. So qualifications should be Saturday. And Pole day on Sunday. I dont remember so many practice sessions though. Are they squeezing them down into a condensed schedule?

Most of the qualifications are televised, most of the practice are online.



It looks slightly compressed, just over a week vs 2 weeks usually.

It kind of makes sense, 11 racers race in the -500 that don't race in the other races. Like Alonso. They need the practice/qualifying time. I suspect that TV content has a lot to do with it also.

Not that I saw, but I didn't follow yesterdays practice that closely.

Um, what is up with Marco? I have never seen him this fast.

The Chevy's need to step it up a bit, the Honda's look fast!

Yah, Andretti's cars seemed locked in.
I just don't believe that Marco, Hunter-Reay, or Hinch are the real deal.
Time will tell.

Rossi maybe. Veach-nope.

I have this feeling that this could be Rahal's year, but he always ends up disappointing in the end.

It took me 2 attempts to finish watching this session but I finally made it to the end this morning. Andretti as a team looks really good - 1st to 4th with Herta the best of the rest in 10th. Maybe its not only the Month of Marco - could it be the Year of Andretti, too!

Andretti is looking fast, Lets see if the Qualifying set up translates to a good race set up.

The Honda's look fast! I know Honda is itching for another 500 win after Chevy taking the last few years.

I don't ever remember seeing 240MPH on the front straight!

Congrates to Andretti! Everyone looks like they couldnt stay consistent over the 4 lap run though. Or they missed the set up to begin with.

Carb day today. Final practice.

Everyone should be in full race trim today, Full race Aero, suspension, brakes, and lowered Turbo boost.

I just can't see any of the Andretti boys finishing 1st right now, Maybe Rossi. But they have been fast!

As of now I would say it's Honda's year, Maybe Dixon or Sato (If he doesn't crash out).

I don't see Alonso on the podium, but I'll wait until final practice. I don't think he will be running at the end of the race.

I think Team Penske is suffering from Roger being busy running Indycar. I'm guessing Penske will not podium this year.

Ed Carpenter racing is always a wildcard at Indy.

I have a funny feeling about Rahal, He will crash out or podium?

Weather forcast: Mostly sunny and highs in the mid 80s
