James Hinchcliffe gets a loud round of applause from the crowd.
Hunter-reay gets fireworks too!
John Sexsmith will be live at the track tonight with the results at 6pm - Jenna Bridges has a great story looking at the future of the race here in the city. Stay tuned.
I snagged Scott Dixon in the Global pool. Go Scott go!.
Drivers say they love the Edmonton Indy track. One of the best on the circuit!.
National anthems and more CF-18 flyovers...minutes away from the start!.
Start the engines! Heeeerrrreee we go!.
The F-18's did their fly-bys. The drivers are doing their warm-up laps. It's race day at City Centre Airport. And it's already a hot one. Should be a great, Izod Indy Car Series race..
These drivers are fast even in warmup!.
Tagliani in the lead - perfect timing for a pass...very very early however - sounds like the crowd loves it
The Edmonton Indy is underway. Hangin' out on the first turn after a long straight-away. Best place to watch some amazing racing already. Alex Tagliani is 1st after the first lap..
Tagliani in first after 2 laps - wow.
Hinchcliffe is 11th I think
Difference between 1st and 25th - :55 seconds or half a track!.
Franchitti holding a solid second position ...
Tags, You're It
Ten laps are complete. Tagliani has a two-second lead over Dario Franchitti..
Hinchcliffe is battling to move up on this race... Every turn is a war!
Yikes! A really wide corner!
Hunter-reay in 9th ... Bit of a gap after first 6 cars
It's hot in the stands, can't imagine how hot the drivers must be... Hunter-reay's team told me drivers can lose 7-9 lbs of water in one race
Cars are starting to spread out a bit now
Cars are stopping to refuel and change tires now... Ah, the smell I burning rubber...
Top five cars are still pretty close together
Close call just now in pit row. Wow. Tags into the pits for a tire change and gas.
Tags and Franchitti getting close!
Tags still holding onto first!
Tags and Franchitti are trading the lead back and forth! So close
