Hickey: Is This the Most Important Qualifying Session Ever?

Josef Newgarden has the potential to become a perennial two-time IndyCar champion, and he’s all of 28 years old. Alexander Rossi can cement his status as one of IndyCars all-time elite drivers. That’s baffling given he’s four years into what looks a career that has over a decade left on it at least. He is…

Handicapping The Championship Field

So here we are, friends, the weekend before the final weekend of the NTT IndyCar season. Six months ago, Josef Newgarden opened the season with a win at St. Pete, and as the summer went along, strengthened his case to win his second series title. Now, as we head to Laguna Seca for the season…

Will Power, An Appreciation

Before I get any further into this blog post, I’m going to make an admission. Prior to this year, I’ve never been a huge fan of Will Power. I really don’t know why. Probably — or more likely — it was the result of being a part of Team Penske. Power is such a seamless…

Three Things: Race Day at Portland

The lines are already long as fans are streaming into Portland International Raceway hours before the race is even supposed to start. I love IndyCar fans. Lots of excitement heading into Portland today, so what’s going on? Can Herta cash in on his pole? Colton Herta has proven to be a wizard at qualifying, and yesterday…

Who’s Hot, Who’s Not: Portland Edition

Crazy as it seems, we’ve reached Labor Day weekend and the unofficial end of summer. We’ve also reached the penultimate round of the IndyCar season, which returns to the Pacific Northwest this weekend after a very successful rebirth in Portland a year ago. So who is bringing the momentum to the PDX, and who is…

Three Things: Race Day from Gateway

It’s race day in Illinois! Yes, I’m serious! While admittedly World Wide Technology Raceway is usually associated with St. Louis and is located 300 miles from my house, I’m still going to claim it as an Illinois track. Anyway, I’m not on site this weekend as I am home attending a wedding, but have mere…

The Case for Pocono Raceway

Hot takes are quite the thing, aren’t they? When things happen in life, the stress we feel at the moment tends to lead to an emotional response, which usually leads to said hot take. I’m guilty of that just as much as anyone else. Matter of fact, I dropped a pretty big hot take myself…

Three Things: Race Day at Pocono

The rain that hampered things here at Pocono Raceway Saturday has gone, and we look clean and green to get the ABC Supply 500 in today. So what’s going on? * I (heart) IndyCar fans. Not race-related, but this is my 11th race of the season so far, and everywhere we go I’m amazed by the…

Kanaan, Dixon, Ferrucci Top Speed Charts at Pocono

The rainy weather made for a strange day at Pocono Raceway Saturday, and when the cars finally made it on track in the early afternoon, things got even stranger. With Practice 1 and Qualifying for Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 washed out and replaced by a single, two-hour practice session, the speed chart was a mishmash…

Weather Delay Theatre at Pocono

It's 10:30 a.m. here at Pocono Raceway, and Practice 1 for the NTT IndyCar Series ABC Supply 500 should be finishing up right about now. Note I said should.  Actually, it hasn't even started yet, as we started the morning on a weather delay, then the skies opened at around 10:45 and gave the track a...
