Sunday morning update from St. Pete

Can anyone beat Will Power today

Sunday has dawned sunny and warm as the teams, drivers and fans gather for today's 12th running of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg IndyCar race.

The only thing stopping the Team Penske Chevys today will be a major first turn pileup. If they get thru unscathed, look for the team cars running 3rd and 4th to protect their flank.

Fuel mileage could come into play today and Honda might have something up their sleeve in that category. We also have to see how the cars race with the new aero kits.

8:55 a.m. – USF2000 race No. 2
