INDIANAPOLIS -- Good morning, everyone, from row AA in the Indianapolis Motor Speedway media center.
Pretty quiet around here, 90 minutes before qualifying begins. But for those of you rooting for a storyline that isn't recyclable -- i.e. "Helio Wins Pole For Penske" -- here's an encouraging word: Topping the speed charts for this morning's practice sessions are Alex Tagliani of Sam Schmidt Motorsports and Buddy Rice from Panther Racing.
Couple of great stories there, if one of them winds up on the pole.
