got me some matchups and ready to watch here. Makes no difference to me if the masses care or not. Wil watch it while I work the NBA game and nascar race. Good day and then go enjoy some beverages a little later.

It was bigger years ago for sure. Lost its luster when that whole CART defection happened.

That reminds me of a time when the Meadowlands briefly had Indy racing a few times and the Meadowlands Grand Prix came to town. It was not shown live and Danny Sullivan ended up winning it. During the race broadcast, I bet my father that Danny Sullivan would win even though his car's clutch got broken midway through and it was going well for me until the words "Taped Earlier" showed up in the corner of the screen and he had a big laugh over it.

Tony stewart wants to race in the Indy 500 again someday I think if he were ever to do so and win he has said it would be the biggest thrill of his racing career

Cashed nicely on the Indy 500, and the Nationwide race last night thanks to a sharp nascar poster. 4-0 with nationwide, and 4-1 with Indy matchups including the winner

here is his Coca Cola plays
j gordon vs kurt busch = take j gordon - -150 martin vs kurt busch = take martin - 140 hamlin vs kenseth = take hamlin - 140 vickers vs dale jr = take vickers - 125 biffle vs kurt busch = take biffle -120 kyle busch vs j gordon = take kyle busch -130

I liked when Tony Stewart ran in both the Indy 500 and Coca Cola 600 on the same day. Didn't he finish in the top 10 of both races the last time he did it? Even when starting from the back of the pack? Would love to see him give the Indy another shot.
