Greetings From Fast Friday

Greetings from a cool and cloudy Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Cars are currently on track trying to see what they can do, just in case the rains come. We came through some significant showers through Kentucky this morning, but it has not rained since we crossed over into Indiana. The temperatures are supposed to get in the mid-to-upper eighties by Sunday, but right now it’s a cool and breezy 65-degrees.

Bit cool and cloudy is a good combination for speed. They’ve turned up the boost today for the weekend, and it’s showing on the speed chart. As I type, Robert Wickens sits atop the chart with a speed of 231.732 mph. He’s followed by Ed Carpenter at 231.066. After that, it’s Oriol Servia, Marco Andretti and Sébastien Bourdais.

On the bottom end of the scale, Scott Dixon is listed with the thirty-fifth fastest speed, but he has not gone out yet. JR Hildebrand is currently thirty-fourth in the car he swiped the Turn Four wall with yesterday. Also near the bottom is Carlos Muñoz, Pippa Mann and Jack Harvey.

We had a non-stop ride up here, so I’m hungry. I noticed another stand underneath the Paddock Stand that is selling the classic jumbo tenderloin, so it looks like the will not be as scarce as in recent years. Anyway, we’re going to go get something to eat. Please follow me on Twitter at @Oilpressureblog for photos, videos and comments. Also follow Susan at @MrsOilpressure. Please check back later this afternoon.
