Road America – Day Two
Day Two at Road America appears to be more of the same – and then some. As big as the crowd was yesterday, it appears that today will be much bigger. I’m not sure but it looked like we got the last parking space in our lot, and we were here by 9:30. The lots we drove by on the way to ours were filling up also – and this is not race day, at least not for the Verizon IndyCar Series.
Currently, Race One for the Pro Mazda Series is underway. Yesterday, there was not a single time when there was no track activity. Altogether there will be five races among the different series here this weekend, along with IndyCar practice at 11:00 and IndyCar qualifying at 3:00.
It was officially announced yesterday that Josef Newgarden will be able to race on Sunday. I cannot imagine he will be 100%, but it shows the grittiness of the young driver from Nashville. I applaud him for not allowing pain to keep him from getting as many points as possible, especially since it was also announced yesterday that he and Conor Daly will not be allowed to participate when the Texas race resumes in August.
That’s going to do it for now. We are going to go out and enjoy the day. Susan says she will have a post up sometime in the early afternoon and I’ll be back for a wrap-up late this afternoon. Please follow the two of us throughout the day on Twitter at @Oilpressureblog and @MrsOilpressure.
Please check back later.
