The Sunday NBC Sports Honda Indy Toronto video recap

Jul 14, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

As ever, there were a lot of video tidbits and clips from an IZOD IndyCar Series race weekend, and Sunday’s second race of the Honda Indy Toronto doubleheader was no different. See the clips from Sunday’s race linked below (and Saturday race and post-race clips linked as well).

From the pre-race show, this was INDYCAR president of competition and operations Derrick Walker explaining how and why Dario Franchitti’s post-race penalty issued Saturday was later rescinded.

The events of Saturday rekindled the old title battle of 2010 and 2011 between Franchitti and Will Power.

    Just settled in to watch the 2nd Indy race from Toronto…but…why o why is that PRAT Steve Matchett doing there,commentating..???? its bad enough with F1, he is such a creep and shoe licker….

      Seriously? Matchett is the BEST thing to come along for Indy Car since in forever. He’s new to Indy Car but not Open Wheel racing. He was the rear jack man on F1 Championship teams for that little known Michael Schumacher. The guy catches things during pitstops that even seasoned veterans miss. Between Steve and Leigh Diffey, Indy Car is actually tolerable again. The previous broadcast teams never knew when a car was coming in for a stop, and when they woke up and realized one was coming in, didn’t know why. At least Steve knew pit stop deltas and when to check to see if a guy was gonna beat another out.
      WELL DONE NBC, Steve and Leigh…you made Indy Car worth watching again! Bravo

        Well..as for Matchett being the ‘Best”…far from it, he just states the obvious all the time.. plus, there are a team of spotters for NBC working behind the scenes to catch everything that goes on, then relay it back to Matchett.. He would never get the job on English TV or Sky……I have been going to F1 races all over the world for 50 years… I am well aware of his rear jack skills with Benetton… ref: Johnny Herbert leaving the pits at the Spanish GP in 1995 and a Steve Matchett running after the jack like Donald Duck….His selective memory of his responsibilities at Benetton are viewed now, through rose tinted goggles…nobody in Europe would entertain him.. he is just a YES man…

    They are million miles better than “Captain Excitement” and “Fountain of Misinformation” over at Always Bad Coverage. We get to see quals and extended post race interviews on NBC Sports.

      I cannot comment on previous commentators, as I am fairly new to watching Indy on NBC… But the general consensus appears to be, the prior presenter’s were not so good… That’s a shame, I would prefer to listen to someone who has been a driver or seriously involved with the sport who knows what their talking about, not some F1 reject who has to come to the USA to get a job….. In Europe, especially the UK, the heart of F1 racing, no one knows who Matchett is .. even in the pit lane it is difficult to find anyone who has heard of him…. most of what he says is BS…This guy, talks to ‘used toilet rolls’ covered in wool and thinks their real…!!!!!~.. really…. How very juvenile…… Hence…all I can say is, if you think Matchett is ‘good’…the others must have been really bad…
