From the official T&S commentary of today's race that will hopefully be tomorrow's race.

The race will be run July 15 at 1 p.m. (EDT).


So there ya go - hopefully The Weather Channel forecast of dry skies until 6pm holds up. If not, we can always pass the time by asking Darren Manning a single question (if you saw the broadcast then you may have noticed the bloke can chat it up a bit).


Also, in case you missed it there was an Indy Pro race today in Nashville that was unaffected by rain. IPS series dominator Alex Lloyd was leading with about 10 laps to go when Brad Jaeger's car slid up track, hit the wall, burst into flames and disintegrated into about a million pieces. Jaeger climbed out of what was left of his car, but Lloyd ran over one (or two, or three) of those pieces and damaged his front wing. Like bent and broken and in need of Cialis sponsorship.

As a result Lloyd was instructed but league officials to enter the pits for repair with but three laps to go, thus surrendering the lead and finishing in 11th - his first non-podium finish of the season.

Meanwhile, the driver who won the Sunbelt Rentals 100 was IPS rookie Robbie Pecorari who drives for Team KMA. That would be the teamed sponsored by Cabo Wabo Tequila and co-owned by rocker Sammy Hagar. Yes, Pecorari got one of those awesome guitar trophies just like the big boys. Sammy must be VERY proud.

    Obviously Sammy has put some his new money (read my article) into his race team...

    The shoes I wore to the track last night are still damp. And today I have a litle bit of sunburn on my face. I'm like Tom Hanks in the movie Castaway.

    Seriously, last night I hung out in the RESTROOM while it was raining.

    Worst.track.ever. And I've been to over 30 in my life/career. Made the local dirt tracks seem like palaces.
