Going to be honest, I have no idea.
It’s a 1.5 mile oval and it should be highly entertaining. The IRL visits a lot of 1.5 mile ovals – remember when American Open Wheel featured the long superspeedways and the short low-banked one milers? What happened to that?
I can’t find a decent YouTube or DailyMotion vid of the track action other than some practice shots of lone cars, which is a bit lame really. Ovals are only exciting when there is more than one car on it.
EDIT – SandWedge pointed out this excellent vid from 2003 which I somehow missed, thanks!
First oval of the year so nobody knows! Will the former ‘transition’ teams be up to speed in the race? It looks like it because the front row is made up of Rahal and Doornbos! How will Robert cope with starting his first oval race up front?
NASCAR Camping World Trucks, Firestone Indy Lights
US TV: LIVE on VERSUS at 4pm ET!
UK TV: Sky Sports 2 at 11pm! (I *think* it is live but since it follows the NASCAR I can’t be sure – it does seem to tally with the US TV time though)
Sorry for the short and late preview. I don’t know a great deal about this racetrack or history and I’ve been mega busy!
