Maybe a race thread is needed? I dunno.
To be honest I only started watching the 500 when Alonso first contested it, and that was a thrilling race.
Since then, I think I’ve watched every 500, plus I’ve watched some classic ones as well. I don’t watch any oval racing since the few Indycar races I remember to watch tend to be road courses, but I can make time for the Indy 500.
As always, I hope we have an exciting (and safe) race. Will still be hoping Alonso has a great run but otherwise I don’t have anything for/against the others.
EDIT: there’s live chat going on in the general motorsports channel on the Oppo Discord as well.
