INDY GP Tire issue

Do you guys think that the Moto GP race on Sept 14th will have tire issues like NASCAR did last weekend?

no we just had brickyard..... I thought it was the track to.....like they ruffed it up a bit for nascar so it would have more grip. But it had a bad effect instead... i am interested to find out how this is going to play out... see you guys at GP

GoodYear said they lacked testing time,New car,same old track surface.
NASCAR has always had tire issues at the Speedway.
The track is the same surface,heavier cars in the car of tomorrow.
IRL doesn't have tire issues with the track or Firestone.
The GP testers didn't mention grip or tire issues during Indy testing.
GoodYear just came to race with a bad product.
Firestone chased GoodYear out of the IRL.

That Brickyard Race was an embarrasment for NASCAR.

Competition cautions ever 10 laps to check tire wear and many were blowing after 9 laps. That race was a JOKE!

NASCAR IMO is or may be in BIG trouble. Their ratings are way down, even in the south. They have made MANY MANY mistakes the past few years.

1. When did Toyota ever make a 350CI V8 with 2 valves per cylinder with a Carburetor?

2. COT car completely sux besides being UGLEEEE

3. Moving the Labor day race from Darlington to that 1 groove track in California.

4. Banning the Confederate flag

5. Banning "creative" cheating

6. Banning Racers fighting and throwing helmets at cars.

7. Banning WINSTON and changing the name to Nextel, then a year later to Sprint.

8. What happened to the Busch clash? Bud shootout was OK but thats gone after this year. STUPID STUPID STUPID

9. No more Winston Million series (win 3 out of 5 select race)

I could probably come up with a dozen more bullit points.

NASCAR sux. Ask Sam Hornish Jr.

No tire issues.... Spies had already tested at Indy and if he did not mention anything on tire life then I dont see any problem.
