IndyCars 2018 - St. Pete
 
Cars are on track and they look fantastic! Tony Kanaan is really fast in the Foyt #14.

Just finished the race, the new cars look great with the exception of the nose it is still to damn wide and takes away from the rest of the car.

Wickens is going to be a PITA for the old guard if he keeps driving like he did today the rest of the year. Alex did what he had to do I just wish it didnt end like that.

Always great to see Seb get a W feel bad for Schmidt though.

Did anyone else notice how well the rookies did compared to past years, I wondering if they are "fresher" with driving low downforce cars compared to the older guys who haven't been in those style cars in years.

A Vancouver acquaintance's son, Scott Hargrove won the GT class.

3 min highlights of rock-em-sock-em racing.

I think that is really a big part of their early success. Coming from Lights or F3/F2, it's a healthy step-up in power, with good downforce increases. The rookies were probably thinking "Wow - all this power and downforce. COOL!" While the regulars were skating around and having to hit different marks for braking, turn-in and power-down. Except for the full course yellows, it was an entertaining race with beautiful cars.
