Don't think I've ever seen an IndyCar race where pit lane was more dangerous than the track before.

Much as I'm a Dario fan I have to feel sorry for Power. No blame on Ana Beatriz either, her crew let her go when they should have held her.

Great race - delighted for Ed Carpenter and Sarah Fisher racing - has there ever been as many babies and tears in victory lane !

Hope Dollar General rethink and sponsor SFR in 2012.

Will Power was terribly unlucky,D&R where not watching the traffic, but it ain't over yet - looking forward to the shootout in Las Vegas.
