Yeah. Everyone cheered as he passed by. It was like a audio wave going around the track as he passed each grandstand/viewing location. lol

I'll post up some more photos in a day or so. We left right after the race on Saturday and after 26 hours straight in a truck I got back into Houston this evening. Just need some time to get caught back up at home and work and I'll see if any of my photos turned out or not.

It was Ben that neutered the field. Not the altitude.
a 9 second lead is "within reach?"

For the majority of race 2, Fab was right there within 2s. It wasn't until 5 or 6 laps left in the race that he began to fade.

True. However, if you listened to (and believed) what Spies was saying in his speech afterwards, he was trying to keep that gap without pushing, and then in the last few laps really opened it up.

From Ben's quote after the race he said that he was just trying to maintain the gap then with about 6 laps left he "pulled the pin". He said he was watching the times and every time Fab got a tenth he tried to put a tenth back in. I think he was just relaxed and playing with everyone out there.
