What would the Month of May be if we didn’t do a preview video for the Indianapolis 500? Well have no fear as George and I are back for our second Two Sites Unite of the month. And as would be expected, it’s a long discussion where we cover our absolute favorite topic and let time simply run away from us.
As we kick off our video, we spend a significant amount of time reviewing last weekend’s qualification sessions – what we liked, what we didn’t like, and how we might spend other people’s money to tweak a few things that could use some fine tuning. We discuss the Graham Rahal saga of struggling all week, being in the race, being bumped out of the race, and ultimately getting an unlikely opportunity to get back in the race.
We also spend time discussing whether or not a Team Penske car can come from mid-pack to win the race and who we suggest just might be a pleasant surprise at the end of 200 laps on Sunday. George then goes on a long rant about people who, quite honestly, should probably be required to post their license before being about to discuss the Indianapolis 500 on Facebook groups. Finally, we find out whether or not George and I are standing firm with our initial picks for the winner of this weekend’s Big Race.
Be forewarned that this is a bit of a long episode, even by our standards, but we hope you’ll find 58 minutes of Indianapolis 500 discussion worth your time. If not, we understand and hope you’ll come back next time when we “try to keep it short” (i.e. around 20 minutes) and inevitably go for 30-40 minutes.
As always, we look forward to your thoughts and comments!
