What a $hitty race...but at least they tried to put on a show for the fans, unlike the F1 USGP/Michelin fiasco a few years ago.

Typical Indy track. Always hard on tires, & the fact that Nascar would not allow an open test for all cars was the biggest problem for Goodyear. Let Firestone get in the ballgame so Badyear can pick up their game!
How can you get a good read on a tire & the track when you only have 3 cars running around testing? You can't & now we have witnessed the final result.
Like 420 says, it was definately the worst race ever!!!!

Not much different then the BS we put up with around here. Competition Yellow or Two Lap Rule, what's the difference? They are both caused by the same problem. Build tires that are more durable. If you lose a little speed so what.

I am sure Goodyear can build a longer lasting tire but then the driver would have to learn to find the limit to the tires and get as close to it as they can without wrecking. But then that would mean only few of them could still drive well enough to finish the race. Was it Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year where they actually had to do this? And you heard what happened then, if they can't go wide open the whole way around they complain about that.
