Good luck to Jack Harvey. Nice bloke. Sat with him for a couple of hours after the Italian GP. (He was GP3 driver then)

There’s an orange and blue car out there which isn’t an Arrow McLaren. Talk about confusing.

Rahal and Rossi collide. If Power had been involved too it would have made my year.

By way of comparison, McLaughlin continues to do really well.

He was good during the virtual races last year too, so virtual and real do compare well.

You aren't kidding. Podium on his oval debut. Outstanding!

Came down this morning to watch recording - forgot to set box last night - D'oh! Error corrected for tonight.

2nd to Dixon is extremely impressive!

Amazing stuff from McLaughlin. He's been in the mix from the start this season. Now in his very first oval race he's 2nd. I find it remarkable that he has come from tin tops to high downforce open wheelers and is on the pace immediately. Yet at the same time I'm thinking; wasted talent.

Solid but unspectacular. I was going to write it off as a learning-the-ropes year.

On the one hand he took advantage of pit strategy and track position, single groove and single file racing; but then Texas is tough track in real life and Scotty Mac handled it like a veteran

Wow. Lucky no-one was hurt. That was a big one. What speed would they be doing?

Not close to racing speed luckily, they were running at pace car speed and just accelerating so 120-140?
