As most of you are reading this, we are probably in the Milwaukee airport getting our rental car for the weekend.

Apparently, there were two IndyCar races run at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night. There was the one that I watched and then the one that a lot of other people watched.

In less than a week, the Verizon IndyCar Series will go from my least favorite track on the schedule to one of my favorites. The DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway has a chance to be edge of your seat excitement tomorrow night, but there is also the potential that it could be a parade.
