Power blasts race director Barnhart

"NASCAR doesn't race in the rain because they don't have rain tyres on a road course, yet Indy cars race on slicks on an oval in the rain," he pointed out. "I don't think there's a question of who wins the battle of the balls this weekend – it's IndyCar!

"If people didn't enjoy that race, I give up. It had everything. It had guys upside down, guys crashing the points leader on the restart, guys giving the double bird to the chief steward. It had everything everyone wants."

You can act that way when they play with your lives like that. Political correctness can cause deaths. Indycar, in my eyes, has become an absolute freaking joke lately. It is about the show and money. Not about racing and safety.
