If you want boring try the NASCAR Brickyard 400 at the Indy track. I went once and was disappointed. They were incapable of passing on that track.
This was the first oval race with the new Dallara cars and turbine engines. I expect with more experience we are going to see some great Indy car racing. They are much improved over past models. There was a record 35 lead changes and most all were on the track passing. There were several lead changes on a lap that never got officially recorded at the start finish line.
The Indy Lites 100 race Friday was also exciting. They were 4 abreast on the straights and often 2 abreast through the turns all bunched up. It was wild and they drove 5+ mph faster than NASCAR is capable of qualifying on that track. The Indy 500 cars drive almost 50 mph faster.
I was happy Dario won. After all, I'm a retired Target guy.
