Long time lurker, trying to be a bit more active... I'd love to be a part of this, but I understand if not as I don't quite meet all requirements. Good on ya either way for doing this!
Nathan, I am going to put you in the maybe column for right now. If a Geek with the requisite credentials doesn't present themselves before the 6 pm gun at the end of qualifying on Sunday then you are most certainly in. I just want to give those who meet the criteria the first crack at this one. Thanks and I will let you know.
Isn't Pippa part of the royal family? Guaranteed to win!
Past performance doesn't indicate future results. 1992 Indy 500, Pole winner Roberto Guerrero spun and crashed the car on the first pace lap and finished 33rd. It was a shocking turn of events. Same race, 33rd starter Scott Goodyear worked his way through the field to finish second.
As for Pippa, 1000-1 odds to win from 30th spot. Makes me wish I had Grays Sports Almanac to place some bets.
It is a very long race. 2 years ago, Juncos racing started 30th and 32nd only to have both cars finish in the top 12.
