Race Day
« on: May 27, 2018, 02:58:36 PM »

Biggest car racing day of the year today.  Pretty cool that F1, IndyCar and NASCAR got together to coordinate staggered time starts for all three major events to be on the same day.

Formula 1:  Monaco Grand Prix.  One of two luxury premier event locales on the #F1 schedule.  Race of the stars.  Hollywood stars, music stars, athlete stars from other sports, and royalty are all present at one of the highest luxury destinations on earth. 

Indy 500:  The famed brickyard.  Premier event of the IndyCar Series.  Tons of history.

Coca-Cola 600:  Although NASCAR popularity has died down some, this is a grand TV event for NASCAR in prime time, under the lights.  Longest race on the schedule as well.  Race is broken up not 4 stages.

Will Power (Team Penske) jumps from third to first with 6 laps to go thanks to the leaders having to take a pit, and he holds on to win the Indy 500 over Ed Carpenter (Team Carpenter) and Scott Dixon (Team Ganassi).

Ricciardi and Power are both Australian.  Great day for the Aussies so far in the first two races.

Kyle Busch dominated the Coca Cola 600 to pick up 70 overall points and close out a great day of racing.
