This year the IRL is giving new meaning to the “green flag.” The official green flag has the ethanol logo.
I was in the pits at the start to take this shot. It’s the best of my bunch.
The race started just a little over an hour delayed and we’re currently in a light rain caution but hopefully things will get back to normal shortly. Jeff Simmons in the Ethanol Car has been running very well and moved up several positions from his start. As of this post he’s in 15th.
