Winners and Losers: Baltimore

Here are the winners, losers, and the Cone of Shame "winners" following Grand Prix of Baltimore:

Winners

Ryan Hunter-Reay
Ryan did all that he could with the race of his life and it could lead to a championship for an American for the first time since 2006.

Simon Pagenaud
Pagenaud with the second best restart of the year in my opinion (first being Kanaan at Indy). The single car team once again proves they can run with the best of them, he just needs that elusive win. 

Briscoe's Seat
A solid P2 run for Briscoe solidifies his argument that he wants to stay in 2013. The ball is on Roger's court now.

Baltimore
It was great to see all the turmoil behind this race put aside as the city and promoters once again put on a great show with many people attending the race and getting exposed to Indycar. They got to witness firsthand what Indycar is all about.

Losers

Will Power
Can it happen for the third straight year? Will Will Power lose the championship on the last race of the season? It could easily happen again.

Graham Rahal
I don't think Graham was at fault but I need to see a replay. Graham had a winning car going for him, but a penalty throws that chance away.

Tony Kanaan
A great result for TK goes down the shitter after he makes a mistake. It was good to see KV on their usual form again, as they haven't been too shabby lately.

Charlie Kimball
Such a shame to see a great run go to waste due to a mechanical failure. Kimball once again proves that he has the abiltities to be successful and shows that he belongs in an Indycar.

Cone of Shame



Team Penske

Quit whining about how Hunter-Reay jumped the restart consider I need a calculator to add up all the times Helio Castroneves has jumped the gun on a restart, including multiple times when being on the pole for the Indy 500.

Let me know what you think.
