While F1 is still on it's vacation, motor race fans
might choose to watch Indycar.
The Pocono race track is unique, and very often
gives an interesting, entertaining, and quality race.
Pocono looks like an oval, but since it's 3 turns
are all different, it races like a road course,
that has a lot of passing (no momentum killing
chicanes).

Scott Dixon is leading for the championship,
but it is still close enough.

A fair number of the prior races at Pocono have
been fun.
Track is kind of like the pre 1972 Monza.

But this year, problems in qualifying, no doubt had
some effect on people's minds. Stupid incidents have
made for a couple ugly problems. Ugly, ugly, ugly!

Good news is it sounds like everyone survived that ugly crash after the re-start. Robert Wickens spinning like a top reminded me of Dan Wheldon's fatal wreck.

But “awake and alert” according to reports.

Wasn’t Pocono where Justin Wilson lost his life?
