    Up here, the Indy 500 starts at 9:00 AM, and the replay of the Monoco GP starts at 1:30 PM. Seems like the final laps of Indy will be happening as the Monaco (replay) begins. After not getting GP replays on Sunday afternoons for the last two seasons, they finally broadcast it to conflict with Indy.

    If no serious accident delays, and no weather delays, the race lasts around 3 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours 45 minutes. Could be faster if no or few yellows.

    Thanks, Ron. May have just enough in between to reset the snacks.

    More important is to use the urinal.

    Also, the GP won't start until 2 your time. From 1:30 to 2 they just show Peter Windsor breathlessly running around the grid trying to get interviews with mid-pack engineers.

    Speed has Monaco GP at 7am CST. No problem.

    Who watches replays anyway?

    Alaskans who sleep on Sunday mornings... that is why I got used to the 7 PM replays they used to do a few years ago. Besides, I can log onto FChat, see who wins, and cheer for the winner.
