Live from Indy - hey everyone
Hey hey hey! About 20 minutes until the drop of the green flag at Indy. #nascar
OK. I'm still fighting a cold I got during vacation.
@mikeyfan5599 All's well here in Indy - a gorgeous day
Gonna head out on the deck for pre-race
My official pick for today -- Mark Martin. He's usually quite good at Indy and team has nothing to lose. #nascar
In 18 starts at Indy, Martin has 6 top fives and 11 top 10s. #nascar
By the way, loved the Anthem
I've actually been pretty good at picking this year. Had a 3 race stretch of winners. And when I miss still usually get a top 5.
While Gordon leads all drivers with 4 wins at Indy, Stewart has best avg. finish (8th). #nascar
Ok people - who do you have today? I am going with pole sitter Denny Hamlin
.@JimmieJohnson has 3 wins at Indy, but his avg. finish in 10 starts at the track is a lackluster 18.4. #nascar
His 3 wins account for 3 of his 4 top 10s at Indy. #nascar
Fewest caution flags at Indy is 1 (1995). Most is 13 (2004). Even the 2008 tire debacle race had fewer (11). #nascar
Most leaders at Indy (16, 2008). Fewest leaders (5, 2000). Avg. # of different leaders is 10. #nascar
Are there empty seats? - yes - is it more or less than last year? - I honestly cannot tell anytime I come here because it's so massive
