How about that Marco Andretti    (Score: 1, Normal) 05-28-2006 16:48

The kid has great potential. He certainly over acheived to finish second with an above average car. I loved it when he said "second is nothing".

Penske had the speed all month long.

Important note - Notice how many Honda's blew up on the hottest Indy ever?

None that I know of. That is a great feat.

Great job Honda. You are thee engine builder....bar none.

I have been an Andretti fan since the day I was introduced to racing which was when I was about 4 or 5 years old. ( I even have a pic of mario holding me in a picture! ) And Just seeing marco drive the way he did was unbelievable. Just like Danica said, he is holdin on to the andretti name and thats a great sight.

In the last couple of laps after Hornish passed Michael, I pretty much knew Marco wouldnt be able to hold on to it. However, I was VERY surprised that he held it as long as he did.

I didnt agree with him saying that second is nothing. I guess that was just one of those stupid mistakes a kid his age ( same age as me ) would make on national television and in that kind of pressure. But oh well.

In any case, Those last 5 laps were the most intense laps I have ever seen. And even tho im a little disappointed that niether of the Andretti's didnt take first, im more then pleased with seeing them both on the podium. And on top of that, im very proud of Marco for how well he did today.

I'm not taking any thing away from Honda, but it's not hard to make a spec engine last. Honda sweeps the top 33 places!
