Go big or go home: It’s time for The Greatest Spectacle in Racing

INDIANAPOLIS - The thin line of bricks that lay neatly surrounded by the long blacktop hold more history than one may be able to imagine. Names like A.J. Foyt, Jimmy Clark, Johnny Rutherford and this year's celebrated Mario Andretti (who won this very race 50 years ago),  have each crossed this line after tackling the … Continue reading Go big or go home: It’s time for The Greatest Spectacle in Racing

Newgarden dominating season and championship with win at Gateway

The last oval of the season is always a bittersweet one, and luckily at least this time, put on a decent show as well. If you managed to stay up until the past-midnight finish, you were in for treat.

Bourdais Takes Unexpected Last to First Win at St. Petersburg

<Insert "Started From the Bottom Now We're Here> All jokes aside, after a crash in qualifying yesterday had Sebastien Bourdais starting dead last on the grid, he made his way for an insanely impressive finish and took the very first win of the IndyCar season.

Return to Texas!

If you have yet to sit down and watch the continuation of IndyCar's Firestone 600 in Texas from Saturday evening, you should do that now. I'll wait. ... You watched it? Alright, let's continue.

A Tricky Race at the Triangle

The … Continue reading A Tricky Race at the Triangle

Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio

Qualifying for the Mid Ohio race this weekend set the grid in a more unique fashion.

However, pole positions didn't make for a huge … Continue reading Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio

Indy and The Great Road America

Indy's 2016 season consists of some of the most anticipated races of the year.

Dual in Detroit, Day #1

Having watched a mix of Juan Pablo Montoya, Scott Dixon, Helio Castroneves and Simon Pagenaud in the top-3 today, it came as quite the surprise to see Sebastian Bourdais take the checkered with Conor Daly following. It was a well-deserved win considering the light on-and-off drizzle--a sign of unpredictable weather, which I'm sure was making teams rethink their race strategies … Continue reading Dual in Detroit, Day #1
