    Pocono

    Nasty crash by Wickens early in the race. I hope he's okay, but I have a bad feeling about this.

    I'm not sure if Pocono is really a track suitable for Indycar, way too many heavy accidents there already.

    That was one nasty trip through the fencing. I had the same feeling when I watched the race. I recorded it and watched it a couple hours after the fact, and immediately Googled to see what his condition was. Though things are looking up, it looks like a great rookie talent is out of the game.

    Pocono has not been a good place for a long time. The infrastructure is old and tired. I'm not just talking about the spectator areas. The fencing has been in bad condition for a while. Although the safer barrier is a definite improvement over the previous boiler plate walls it's still not all that good. The inside guard rail is in poor condition too. Not to mention that if it rains the place is a swamp.
