As the summer vacation is in full swing some of us are planning for the runoffs...after not participating last year I am eager for this year run-offs. 

 

I sold my car so hopefully my new car will be ready in time...

 

 

Car count over or under 70 cars?

 

What would the podium look like? plus alternate 

 

Hard Charger Award goes to?

 

How many sets of slicks will you use during the run-offs including practice and qualifying?

 

Will Tod Buras keep the car on track all week?

I am the obvious winner of the runnoffs for several reasons:

The biggest of these is by avoiding a week to ten days driving 45 minutes each way every day staying in a shit hotel having little to no dinning options, in what always seems to me the be the God forsaken place on Earth that has a great race track.

Of course if you like eating everyday at the Sheetz you will love your 10 day stay!

Good luck to anyone going and especially team ESR!

Buras will be yelled at several times by Jim for help mid corner.

Preston will be waxing cars daily.

Jim will be telling story's while drinking mini coke zeros, and trying to figure out the best way to totally fudge will Danny steyn. And if not doing well he will also be saying his engine is just off like it was as Indy :)

I'm sure there will be many laughs of course under the tent!

Todd is either going to win BIG or lose with gusto. Jim will say "Todd, What were you thinking" at least 5 times during the event. Preston will be in charge of adding fuel to the fire.

LOL! All of this is spot on. Indy was a tough one for Jimmy because he qualified behind the peoples champ :) and if it was his engine that was off ... I am not sure why he sat on the scales all day, every day :D

P$ will become the second ever two-pump-chump!

 

Followed by Kicera in P2 and Buras in P3.

 

Wildcard is Haldeman.

 

Hard Charger is Mr. Two-Time himself, Jimmy Drago! He will have another tough week of qualifying, starting in the mid-upper twenties, and will charge to a top 10 finish!

I knew I liked your broadcast partner better than you.. 

 

And just to set the record right.. I have no idea where the wheels fell off the bus at Indy..  The power on my car was not off enough to put me back where I was.. Nothing was working I think we had car issues, set up issues and driver issues. We never found anything conclusive.  We started fast and left slow :(  Another week of that would not be fun.  I plan on redeeming myself and making Nick look a lot smarter than he is :)
