Q: Spent the weekend up in Toronto and it was everything an Indy weekend should be. Gorgeous women, cold beers and most importantly great racing. It had the same vibe as when i started going to races in the 90′s minus the Tecate Girls. This should be a blueprint for every event IndyCar stages. All the talk the past few weeks of kids and fans buried in their cell phones was completely void this weekend. I didn’t see it once when the on track product was on. Two questions: In the first race, Bourdais stayed out a couple extra laps while leading before pitting and came out with no advantage, that used to guarantee bigger gaps running on lighter fuel while others were full. What has changed? Do the tires make that big a difference? And my final question or statement is I’ve been attending IndyCar events for 20 years does Michael Andretti ever smile?
