Homestead 2010: Will Power to take ICS Title?

Whale it’s almost time again to play for all of the marbles... As I’m posting this a bit early since I’m not sure where I’ll be watching the race from? As I’ll definitely set the trusty ‘Ol School VCR with extra time tacked onto the end of the race!

Just a wee bit ‘O trivial research... As it appears that Homestead is potentially a Target Chip Ganassi Racing affair, eh? As The Cheepster’s “Manly Men” have ruled the roost by winning there the last 4yrs in-a-row, along with capturing four of the past six events.

Yet, I seem to recall that Penske’s Ryan “Disco Fever” Briscoe dominated the event last year... Even leading the MOST laps of the race in a fierce Mano e Mano duel for the chequered flag with Scott Dixon whilst Dario “REO Speedwagon” took the (HULIO “N) Danica approach and utilized a fuel sipping conservation mode to win the race and the IndyCar title after Briscoe threw away a sure victory and 25 points lead at the Motegi race preceding the finale...

And I wasn’t gonna scour le internetz, BUTT! I did it for shear humour and discovered the statistics noted above.

But I’m putting my money on No. 12! As its gotta be a Penske year after all of the nonstop victory dances ‘Ol Cheep’s been doin’ all season long, eh? As in the Daytona 500, Indy 500 and Brickyard 400... Who LUV’s Yuhs Baby? So GO! WILL POWER! You deserve it... As after all, who’s WON the MOST races & Poles this year – Huh!

That’s right! Say it loud together...
Versus kickoff time is listed as 6PM New York/Indy (ET) Which means I don’t know when the Green flag will actually be thrown, but I’ll hazard to guess it’ll be somewhere ‘round 7PM ET? SHEISA!
