Indy 500 Practice Day 5 Washed Out - Fast Friday Next

Rain fell throughout the day today, May 8th and not even the track drying equipment made it out at the Brickyard. I didn't go out either and I'm excited about Fast Friday which should be furious as everyone gears up for Pole Day and a spot in the Top 11 which will be at stake Saturday. Rookies had better watch their mirrors in practice Friday and be ready to give up the line into the corners if they are not running at the speeds of the top teams. Hopefully, it will be a safe and fast day for everyone tomorrow and I'll be back to write about it all and post more pix.

Watch for AGR's Hideki Mutoh, Newman Haas Lannigan's Justin Wilson and Alex Lloyd with the Ganassi/Rahal Letterman combo to rise to the top this weekend. They have the teams behind them that could catapult them towards the front, but they must be patient and not try to do too much too soon. Jaime Camara paid the price for that earlier this week and Indy is a stern taskmaster for those who don't pay attention to the lessons of others. See you soon.
