Open Wheel Wednesday

This weekend will see the first street course race of the 2008 Indy Car Series. The St. Petersburg course has a wide open front stretch with a very accommodating turn 1.

There will be a new qualifying format the larger field, which is up to 26 cars. It will be interesting to see if they pull it off; but I think with Tony Cotman involved, only good things can happen. It may also afford the Champcar teams the opportunity to be up the grid.

I have a feeling that KV Racing will make a good show; maybe even qualifying in the top 10. However NHLR has not been able to catch a break, having their Sebring test shortened by inclement weather.

So keep an eye to the TV on Sunday at 2:30pm.
