Watkins Glen International will resume the LIVE driver chats on the WGI Fan Talk Forum on Wednesday, June 20th and will welcome a winner of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing". 2004 Indianapolis 500 champion Buddy Rice will be this week's featured guest and will be available for fans questions from 7:30 PM - 8:00 PM. This marks the return of the Live Driver Chats that were met with great success leading up to the 26th Running of the Sahlen's Six Hours of The Glen.

This is the first of two 30-minute live chats that will feature drivers from the IndyCar Series. Both live chats will feature a different driver from the IndyCar Series leading up to Watkins Glen Grand Prix, July 6-8.

Both of these live chats are open to any and all race fans that go to the WGI Fan Talk Forum or the WGI homepage A link to the live chat will become available to all visitors at about 7:20 PM and will be active for the entire chat. (MORE)
Suggested topics for tonights discussion include:
• Do you miss the Phoenix heat during the summer?
• Sarah or Danica - who has the better hair?
• Don't you wanna curve the bill one of those hats just once?
• Ever get tired of seeing footage of the flip in Chicago?

I don't normally link to clips of crashes, but I did in this case because I'm still impressed at how the Delphi Safety Team was on Rice's car before it came to a stop. Those folks rock. Period.

    ABC cannot love that footage more. It's the racing equivalent of the guy going off the ski jump to the "agony of defeat." Lucky Buddy landed where he did and not onto of an other car.
