Indy Racing League - AJ Foyt 225
A week after the Indy 500, the IRL moves to The Milwaukee Mile, which is a very different type of track. A mile oval, with a maximum banking of 9.25 degrees, this is not a speed track, but a precision one. The IRL has raced here 4 times and the only track winner in the field is Tony Kanaan , who has won for the previous 2 years (other winners are recent NASCAR recruits Sam Hornish and Dario Franchitti). Kanaan is great on this track and has been fast all season. He should be a 7-2 shot, so I'm having 2 points (max allowed) at 7-1 with Stan James. Also with Dan Wheldon continuing to go backwards the Championship looks between Kanaan, Dixon and Helio. Kanaan is a very solid Each Way bet at 13-2 and I've had 2.5 points each way on this. The biggest danger for tonight and the season is the Indy 500 winner Dixon.
