IndyCar » Double-header races "cool" - but need changes

Saturday night's Firestone Twin 275 double-header was a success, but the blind draw attracted criticism especially from Dario Franchitti - which even race 2 winner Will Power agreed with.

Double header was great - can see the downside of the draw but it was entertaining to watch and it did give the viewers the chance to see all 30 of the drivers interviewed and to see a bit of their personality in their reaction to their luck or lack of it !

To bad for Dario, but, take it like a man. I thought the draw for race 2 would be lame, but, it was nice to hear from some of the drivers who normally don't make it on television. It would be nice to have a 2nd double header each year. Michigan, or Fontana would be nice.

I agree that it was entertaining and also good to hear from drivers you normally wouldn't. Maybe the draw should be split into 2 halves so those who finish well in the first race don't lose out so badly.

The way the draw is done is a shame and it turned out to have really unfair consequences on the championship, disrespecting the competition itself.

Inverting the grid would be as good - if not better - for the show and fairer. Or indeed, they can mix an inverted grid for the first half and a draw for the second half of the first race.
