What the hell happen? I've watched Champ Car and Indy on ABC for ages.

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?

The cable provider doesn't provided Versus where we are at. I had to race down to the bar... and missed it.

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.

Who's got it? I'm not getting screwed out of another Indy race this season.

I also signed up for the in car Internet coverage during Long Beach... anyone every got that to work?

Versus covers Indy races now sorry partner

Marc, any chance you can do me a favor and record it with your DVR and burn me a copy like you did with the GT race?

Thanks JRL, I have the same feeling, but I only watch 2 hours of TV a week, so I haven't seen any commercials. I want to make sure. I may head to the local yard house to see if they carry it.

Thanks JRL

I don't know what I was looking at, but it's pretty clear now on their site.

What a way for Tagliani to get bumped.

True........but by 3/100 th's at the gun was pretty dramatic. Glad to see John Andretti make it after the last hour craziness that he went through.

Bachelart pulled Junquera and put Tag in that car so he WILL start the 500

I don't have Versus to watch all the pre-race stuff... who looks good right now?

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.

What happen with Newman's son?... saw him with the Letterman / Rehal team and now they have Oriol Servia.

Defiantly looks like a few of the Champ Car guys finally getting picked up.

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

The closest field in history.
I think there are 20 legitimate cars that could win.
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.
In theory, this could be a fantastic race and one of the best in years.
I think the finish of this one will be spectacular!

Tracy is starting mid pack

Ya, I'm in Hawaii right now.

I do 3-4 month rotations to Hawaii. I've been working on 3 hospitals here in the Honolulu area since March 3rd. I had a business meeting last Thursday where I had to fly over to Lihue, Kauai for 2 hours... so it appears I'll be heading there June 1st for a 1 month job working on a 4th hospital. I might stretch that job out a bit so I can doing a little hiking and rock climbing .


Then back to good old CA.

Tony Kanaan (though Marco Andretti would be cool too).

Edit: Sorry for the curse guys.

Well, I'm not exactly sitting on the beach with a Mai Tai. Besides... it's Honolulu, it's like Los Angeles with the added 100% humidity and VOG. Still caughing up a lung from last weeks VOG session.

Danica looks good today . Still got my eye on Tracy, but I got a feeling Tony is going to get this one... ooopps, nevermind I jinked him.
