Who will win the pole for the Indianapolis 500
Edited on Sat May-15-04 06:27 AM by Norbert
or does anyone even care anymore.

My hometown newspaper hasn't had much this year at all on the big race and I only live 100 miles from the track. I guess my friends were right after all. The Indy 500 has lost its luster.

Anywhow there are still a few drivers I like and know. I think Sam Hornish Jr. tops them all today.

That's if he is still in the Indy series.

2. Wow! One response. My friends really were right.
The Indy 500 better fix things because it certainly is broke.

For the Record Helio Castroneves still runs the series for Penske and has Hornish as his teammate.

4. The person I'd like to see run the 500
is Michael Schumacher.

Helio Castroneves will win the pole.

However, the IRL screwed all those guys: they changed the engine formula after the last race, so your old 4-litre engine can't be run in the 500--and an engine lease costs $350,000. Not even NASCAR does things that dumb.
