Mug N Bun is insanely overrated. Make the drive to The Bank in Pendleton if you want a kickass tenderloin.

Near that area, I’d suggest Broadway Diner in Fortville as well. Keystone Sports Review on 56th/Keystone also does a good tenderloin.

Joe’s Grill in Castleton does a lovely one, but it’s a great place to observe yokels in their natural habitat.

Have you guys heard of this burger place that sells a 1/4 lb of beef (uncooked weight) with cheese'n'stuff? Comes with fries on the side, too. MacDoogals or something

Small increase in minimum weight for next year to give them some breathing room for the aeroscreen later, but it also mentions that the increased side impact protection has added nearly ~15lbs of material to each tub. Good to see.

New race director whos taking over for Barnhart will be Kyle Novak, previously the CTSC/Porsche GT3 Cup race director for IMSA. No word yet if he wants 4 good ones.

TV schedule and start times. ESPN's broadcast crew has been decided, but not released:

I'm hoping the PBP guy isn't the guy who does Rallycross, because that's the only racing property ESPN has at this point (excluding F1, which sounds like it'll be an international feed).

The road/street course driver for Ed's car is gonna be Jordan King

quote:

King, who has competed in Formula 2 (formerly GP2) for the last three seasons, was named FIA Institute's 2015 Driver of the Year and won the 2013 British Formula 3 championship. He will race for ECR in the 11 road/street course races in 2018, beginning with the season-opening race in St. Petersburg, Florida..

Carpenter, the only owner/driver in the Verizon IndyCar Series, will race the car in the six oval events.

With that, we are at 21 cars full time. All that's left is Coyne's second car to put it at 22, with 2 part time cars.

So we're going up 1 car full time, but we have more teams and two teams testing the waters as well on part time deals.

Wonder if they're going to run two cars for those four races or just have him and Kaiser split the same car (and maybe run two in the 500).

Shared car. Kaiser is running Long Beach, Indy GP, the 500, and one other not announced. Binder is apparently running St Pete, Barber, Toronto, Mid Ohio.

I'm all for Juncos picking up ride-buyers till they fill the season.

Yeah, it's an extra car but it can't be stressed enough that while King is GP2 trash, he's vaguely competitive GP2 trash.

Binder is borderline Draconne. In 3 full and 3 partial seasons of GP2 he's scored a full 20 points. And literally half of those came in 1 lucky Monaco weekend.
