Clearly, I have stepped outside the box to cover the Baltimore Grand Prix and I'm pretty stoked to see some open-wheel. OK, who am I kidding. I'm pretty stoked to see Danica Patrick, since I've always liked fast women.
The weather didn't completely cooperate during the Indy Lights qualifying this morning. There was a brief rainstorm that gave the event that spongy Baltimore feel we all love so much and a threat of lightning that prompted race officials to close some raised walkways, but the qualifying went on as scheduled.
It was pretty cool watching the Lights cars speed down Pratt Street, so I've included this cheesy cell phone photo to give you a taste of what it's like for the fans lining the track.
