We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Today’sIzod IndyCar Seriesis putting on some of the best racing no one is watching. In the 15 races run so far this season, 10 different drivers have won, including four first-timers (James Hinchcliffe,Takuma Sato,Simon PagenaudandCharlie Kimball). And this Sunday’sGrand Prix of Baltimore(which will be carried live at2 p.m. Eastern/11 a.m. PacificonNBC Sports Network) has a good chance of adding to those remarkable totals.

But first, let’s wind the clock back to last week, and the open test before last Sunday’sGoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma. Naturally, as a maker of small HD action video cameras, the race sponsor decided to document the proceedings, enlisting the help of three ofAndretti Autosport’s drivers: Hinchcliffe,Marco Andrettiand 2012 IzodIndyCarSeries ChampionRyan Hunter-Reay. We see Hinch and RHR engage in some pit cart horseplay (and hear the Mayor ofHinchtowndrop an sh-bomb; whoops) before joining Marco out on track in theirChevrolet-powered steeds. Dear IMS Productions: More camera angles like these, please!
