Spy Games at Indy

Random observations from the Brickyard …

10:14 a.m.: Quickly realizing everything’s like a mile away when you have to walk. Golf carts, while sometimes annoyingly over abundant, are essential at this behemoth of a race track.
10:31 a.m.: The sluggish economy clearly hasn’t hindered early morning beer sales.
11:07 a.m.: AJ Allmendinger is caught in a desperate search for any news on his man crush, Brett Favre.
11:32 a.m.: Red Bull driver Cole Whitt has reason to stick his chest out a bit while strolling through the infield. He finished 11th in Thursday night’s USAC midget race at O’Reilly Raceway Park and sits third in points.
11:35 a.m.: No sighting of the Jonas Brothers (above), who were in town Wednesday for a show.
12:36 p.m.: Brian Vickers explains to the media why the No. 83 can make the Chase. “If I had to take a stab at it, I would say that if you post all top 10s between now and Richmond, you’re almost going to guarantee yourself a place in the Chase."
1:16 p.m.: God bless air conditioning.
1:33 p.m.: Photographers and television crews suit up and scramble out of the Pagoda.
2 p.m.: Finally, some on-track action.
3 p.m.: Brian ends up 10th in opening practice. AJ is 22nd.
3:47 p.m.: ESPN's coverage has nothing on Fox.
4:30 p.m.: Brian ends up 17th in second practice. AJ is 20th.
4:43 p.m.: Counting down the minutes to Industry Night at Energy Station.

More to come …

"3:47 - ESPN's coverage has nothing on Fox." Now that's an understatement. At best, ESPN's coverage is okay and it's slate of commentators are somewhere between mediocre and just plain horrible. Rusty Wallace and Tim Brewer should be somewhere sharing a beer together about 2:30pm on Sunday.

On a more positive note... I can't wait to see BV and the Bull Crew kissing them bricks on Sunday. Go get 'em boys!

I also can't wait for them to kiss the bricks. Lot of people believe they will be contenders. And it seems like Clint Bowyer is struggling. This is going to be big for the #83 team. And I also believe Jimmy Elledge will lead the #84 team to their first top 10 finish.

It was awesome to see AJ on "Dale Jr Shifting Gears" last night. Hope he has been having fun go-karting at the Dirty Mo Speedway.

Best of luck tomorrow RBR. Can't wait to see one of those bulls in VL.
