Saturday Morning At Barber Motorsports Park

Good morning from Barber Motorsports Park and the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. We have been here for a while, but there was a generator problem in the Media Center this morning, meaning there was no power or internet. That problem was fixed around 9:30, so I was able to come in and type

It is still warm (and a bit muggy), but the clouds have rolled in and it is pretty much overcast. That is probably the way things will be throughout the day, until the storms start in late afternoon or early evening.

The first Verizon IndyCar practice starts at 11:00 Central time and will conclude at 11:45. Qualifications get underway at 3:15 and will be over with by around 4:30. The NBCSN broadcast of qualifications will be slightly delayed and will begin at 3:30 pm Central time.

As promised (or threatened), I was able to upload the One Take Only episode that John McLallen and I recorded from the track on Friday afternoon. We had to yell to be heard over the Indy Lights cars in the background. What turned out to be even more distracting was the PA announcer in the background. It’s less than nine minutes, so give it a listen.

Anyway, Susan and I are going to go wander the IndyCar paddock as teams prepare for the third and final practice in less than an hour. Check back here later for updates. In the meantime, follow me on Twitter at @Oilpressureblog or Susan at @MrsOilpressure. See you in a bit.
