What the hell happen? I've watched Champ Car and Indy on ABC for ages. <p>I'm stuck working in Honolulu right now and I checked my listing for ABC's coverage for Long Beach Grand Prix. I found something at 11:30 my time... and said great, there it is. 11:30 rolled around and it's a taped race and not the Indy cars. WTF?<p>The cable provider doesn't provided Versus where we are at. I had to race down to the bar... and missed it.<p>Now I'm seeing the Indy 500 is on Versus... WTF... or is it not? Scheduling say's that ABC has it from 10-noon (pre-show) and 1pm live coverage. Versus say's it's got coverage from noon-6pm.<p>Who's got it? I'm not getting screwed out of another Indy race this season.<p>I also signed up for the in car Internet coverage during Long Beach... anyone every got that to work?

I don't have Versus to watch all the pre-race stuff... who looks good right now?<p>I heard Paul Tracy got picked up... where's he running? He was my favorite at Long Beach every year... even though I know he causes a lot of trouble.<p>What happen with Newman’s son?... saw him with the Letterman / Rehal team and now they have Oriol Servia.<p>Defiantly looks like a few of the Champ Car guys finally getting picked up.<br>

Re: Indy on Versus... WTF? (KillerB)

The closest field in history.<br>I think there are 20 legitimate cars that could win.<br>Less than 3 mph separate 1st from 33rd, so anyone who hits the right setup on race day will have a shot with some luck.<br>In theory, this could be a fantastic race and one of the best in years.<br>I think the finish of this one will be spectacular!<p>Tracy is starting mid pack
