WyldStallion should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Indy 500 was so interesting in the 1990's and you felt like what happened from start to finish mattered in the outcome. My first Indy 500 I watched on TV was 1989. In today's era, the last 10 laps is seriously all you need to see. And that reflects my viewing habits from the 1990's today. Is there a 500 since 2011 where what happened before lap 190 mattered at all in the outcome?

Indy really took off in the 90s and as you say itís always seemed to be every lap counted. The last 10 laps are important, but I donít think it makes the first 190 any less relevant. Although times have changed, the basics are still the same.

We all remember the dramatic last lap in 2011, since then weíve plenty of other memorable races, like 2013, 2017 and 2019. Indy still means a lot and still delivers a great spectacle too

Yeah, I don't understand the nothing happens in the first 190. Without decent strategy and understanding of your car you won't make anything of the lap 10. Just because it's not the false sense of racing because there are passes all day doesn't mean there isn't racing and strategy being developed.

I'm not too sure what you mean by Indy really took off in the 90s? Do you mean greater exposure?

I'm not too sure about that. The last 10 laps are the culmination of the previous 190.

Yeah, the first 190 you see who is setting up the better fuel strategy, who is avoiding the wrecks, who is best at saving fuel, and who is steadily tweaking their car each stop to improve and working their way up the grid to put themselves into the top 5 or so that have a chance in the last 10.
