Today's (5/7) opening day of practice didn't happen. Rains washed out the day. Tomorrow looks to be better with the track opening for practice at 11AM EST and closing at 6PM EST.

News: Team Penske's Shark Fin Is Clipped. USAC tech inspectors said that the vertical fin on the engine cover did not meet the rules. No worry, when the Penske garage opened this morning, a much abbreviated version of the fin was in place. When asked how this would affect the cars, the response was a terse, "It won't."

Too many rumors were floating around, but it was a rather slow day.
