Hi Joey,

Been watching races at Indy since they first televised them back in the 1950's. I am excited to watch this Sunday's race. I hope you have a fantastic race and all goes well for you.

As a racing fan I prefer to watch the old 1950's Indy cars rather than today's Indy cars. Just an old fashioned guy.

Hi Joey,

Am proud to say I am a fan of yours and the Penske #22 team. You people NEVER give up and I appreciate that. Those last 2 restarts had me on the edge of the seat cheering for you. The next to last start you had the #18 car wiggling. Too bad the CAUTION came out. I would loved to see how that start played out. On the last restart I figured you gave it your all and maybe more to beat the #18 and maybe lost the grip to the track and went backwards.

You and your team deserved better than 7th!

At the end of these races I end up shaking my head. What has the #18 car got that gets extra speed out of it? Even his team mates can't beat him. I do not root for Kyle Bush BUT I have always given him credit for being able to drive the wheels off a race car, a good car or a bad car. Makes no difference to him.

I hope team Penske can come up with answers that will get their cars out in front of the Gibbs cars so they can leave the toyota's in the dust.

Much success to you during the rest of the season.

Capt Neil
