Eleven Race Day Rattlings & Ruminations:
Sarah Fisher (O’Gara) Hartman Racing plus Ed Carpenter Racing equals a whole lot a racing. Will the combined CFHR remain the underdogs we enjoy rooting for?
What’s next we can only imagine. Ever heard a’ Herta Foyt Racing?! We’d take the sharp looking black 14 car back on track.

Our pole predictions were extremely close, missing it by that much. Right team, wrong Penske and 2nd choice TK starts 2nd. Our picks to win? Starting 19th & 20th. Ouch.
How about that pole speed? 169.262 mph – over a mile per hour slower than Marco’s record last year.
Perhaps Penske’s perpetually perturbed Power prevails from pole?

Does JPM’s resurgence continue, increasing the pressure on Will and Helio?
Will AA’s surprising recent struggles at the Mile persist? Marco’s their top qualifier – in 9th.
Is Tony Target’s best shot at victory at the Mile? Or is it Briscoe? What an off year for Dixie and the whole Ganassi team.
Do either of the newly paired Newkid or Carpenter have a shot at victory circle? It’d complete a big weekend for them.
Can Sato turn in a strong showing and actually finish in front of his sponsor’s home crowd? We’re dubious but hopefully wrong.
We’re high on Munoz, but which rookie makes the most of his maiden Milwaukee Mile?
