IndyCar returns to an oval race track this weekend at the Kentucky Speedway for Sunday's Kentucky Indy 300. The 1.5 mile oval sees fast and frentic racing of up to 220 mph. Dario Franchitti will hope that he can regain the points lead in these final two rounds to retain his title. The race starts at around 7:45 pm on Sunday evening.

Oh no. Power on pole but Franchitti 11th. Still, overtaking on a big oval is way easier than on a road course. Hopefully somebody with brain fade like Viso or Sato takes out Power.

Holy crap, what was going on pit road? De Silvestro decided to mow down her pit crew, Marco Andretti had brain fade and Will Power got tagged by Beatriz.

What a great driver Dario is, before the first round of pitstops he was 11th - after the pitstops he took the lead. With Power's car working terribly in traffic, Dario didn't need to win at all costs. Sure, Dario was fighting hard for the win - but he's still 18 points up on Power. What a great drive by Carpenter, he's not exactly great on road courses, but he easily passed Dixon on the final restart and was faster than Dario in the final stint.

With Will Power, the car was slightly damaged. But his pace behind other cars was terrible, that was why he finished so poorly.

Not sure how much that damage on Power's car affected his performance, it was only very slight sidepod damage. His team had set the car up in a very low downforce trim, assuming that Power wouldn't need to pass many cars. But that pitlane incident cost him a lot of positions, and didn't have the downforce to make up positions.

Perhaps that's inexperience from Power, focusing too much on qualifying. Dario's car seemed to work better in traffic - that flexibility was key.
