“The new Scott Sharp”

Sounds like Scott Dixon and Ed Carpenter didn’t think Iowa was a good place for Danica Patrick to throw a block party.

"She's lucky that's all she got man," Dixon said when asked about what he perceived was a near brush with trouble by Patrick during the race. "She's a menace man."

"I just started working with my car, working towards the front but Danica was doing her normal supreme block job," Carpenter said. "She is the new Scott Sharp of the series as far as I am concerned. That is two races in a row."

I’m shocked, SHOCKED to hear of blocking during an IndyCar race!

Weigh this with a grain of salt, because any spotter will tell you that racing in a congested environment like Iowa Speedway leads to all sorts of complaints about drivers not holding their lines. During the LiveBlog yesterday I caught Marco Andretti on the scanner complaining about Dixon’s defensive driving, and I’m certain others elsewhere were tweaked about someone else. Brian Barnhart probably has a sore ear from spending the entire day listening to complaints about Scott Sharp impersonations.

Oh how we miss thee, Sir Blocks-A-Lot.

    I doubt many fans miss him more than me. It's almost like he disappeared - no one talks about him anymore and he never gets mentioned. And the first time someone does, it's a negative comment that makes national press. What a shame.
