It's amazing to watch them accelerate off turn 9. The yamahas are so composed, the hondas are nearly as smooth, and the ducatis are looking more out of shape.

Harleys are on track now, there could be an oildown.:p

Seeing how the slowest man in FP1 at Indy last year (Randy DePuniet in the 17th spot) was about 3 tenths faster than Spies' leading time today, I'm guessing that the track must still be really green after the re-pave and/or recent rains. Either that or they used a pavement compound/mix that simply yields less grip.

Watching them do practice starts, Spies was fishtailing away and you could see some of them spinning excessively.

Wow. That takes me back. Never knew Jack but they don't come any nicer than Audry....
Agreed, miss Audry is the coolest chic ever, and helped many a racer in her time. From the Hayden bros. to Hunter Morgan, and lots of folks in between. She's class act and a dear close friend of mine. Jack is her dude, we grew up riding and racing together, they are two awesome folks...


oh yea, GO Spies!... :D

Homeless people begging on every corner down Meridian.
Those "homeless people" may actually be Ducati wrenches trying to get a free buck before they shut down the team!


Went there for the dealer show a few years ago and vowed to never come back. Then my alma mater went to the Final Four two years ago and I had to go back to that dump. What an epic shithole that place is. Was gonna hit the SuperBowl for the first time in my life this year and guess where it is? Fukn shitty Indy! I'll wait and hit the next two. Cannot believe that place survives on 3 races a year. :rolleyes: Hope they nix both Laguna and Indy once Austin gets built.;)
