Qualifying this week

You've probably heard the new qualifying rules for this week's race at St. Petersburg. The Web site actually does a pretty good job of explaining it -- I've provided an image below that really helps...

It's a lot like the qualifying process for F1. The first round will determine starting positions 13 through the end. The second round will determine positions 7 - 12 and finally, the third round will determine the top six positions. I really enjoy watching the F1 qualification process so I'm excited about this new addition to their process. It's almost like a small "race" for qualifications. It really adds a little bit of drama to the qualification process...hats off to the IndyCar site for good coverage.
