Bump Day was fascinating to watch and made for some great theater. Tracy's move to withdraw his time and go again was a complete disaster. Glad to see Sato finally make it in. I wonder if he can keep his car in one piece before the race ends next Sunday?

The 11th row on the grid should have ended up being Sato, Kanaan and Tracy, but things turned out disastrous for PT. Compelling stuff. Can't wait for the race!

I watched it online on, and it was thrilling stuff, what WERE Tracey and Jay Howard thinking of by withdrawing times? Completely irrational.

The only downside to my viewing was that there wasn't 'proper' live timing, only an end-of-lap time which actually showed up two seconds before the end of a lap!

Roll on the big day....

Tracy made the wrong call and it was a complete disaster.

But for Howard to turn around AND DO THE SAME THING was mind boggling stupid and senseless. Even if Tracy was in line to go out again you don't take yourself out of the race when neither you or Tracy has shown the speed to better your previous time. Incredible.

Tracy and Howard felt that if they didn't go out again, they would lose their spot and not have enough time left to make another run. Turned out to be a complete disaster for Tracy, as he almost put it in the wall and never recovered. Compelling stuff that makes Indy so interesting. I've always liked PT and would have loved to see how things would have went between Kanaan, Sato and Tracy in the final row during the race. What an interesting group of drivers that would have been starting 31st, 32nd and 33rd. It will be very fun to see how Kanaan charges forward, and if Sato can stay off the wall. I'm pulling for Will Power and Graham Rahal. Can't wait for Sunday!

Lots of drama. Loved it! For those who didn't catch the action, check out the video highlights at Indy Car dot com. Looking forward to watching the race there too, but wish I had Sky Sports. Any pubs in the London area showing the race?

Will we see Adam Carroll at Andretti Racing when the road courses start back up in July?
