Saturday at IMS

That was just absolutely crazy. Come on, you know I had to! Last year I watched qualifying from my couch at home, and this year I joined Host Mike and Jess at the front of the qualifying line. Let me just say, it was a much different experience. As the last hour ticked on, the…

Fast Friday Thoughts

The checkered flag has fallen at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to end Fast Friday, and the qualifying draw goes down soon. Did we learn anything today? Honestly, who knows? What we do know is that qualifying is going to be crazy. Speeds. After finishing as the slowest car on Fast Friday last year, Andretti Autosport driver…

Early Fast Friday Things

It’s just about 12:45 p.m. at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and cars have been on track for just under two hours. We’ve already had a bit of drama today, so here are some early storylines. The speed. The turbo boost was cranked up last night and the 50 extra horsepower has added some speed. Marco Andretti,…

Tuesday at IMS

The weather finally broke and we had a gorgeous day at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with a mix of sun and clouds and temperatures in the high 60s. Best of all, no rain in sight! Lots of action on the track for the first day of practice, with the field combining for over 2,500 laps. Here…

Harvey, MSR Find Something at Indy GP

At the start of the 2017 season, Jack Harvey was a driver without a team, and Meyer Shank Racing’s fledgling IndyCar team was without a driver. The two parties got together for the Indy 500 that year, where Harvey finished 31st as a rookie, and have stayed together ever since, gradually and developing into what…

With the depth of the field that is the NTT IndyCar Series, it doesn’t take much to throw a race into chaos. With rain in the forecast for the sixth Indianapolis Grand Prix, the chances of a chaotic Saturday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway were high, and when it started falling with less than 30…

Friday at The Indy GP

Qualifying for the Indianapolis Grand Prix is complete, and the result is that we could be in for an interesting race day tomorrow. Thoughts? Here’s mine. Penske vs. The Field. In the past at the GP, it was Team Penske’s world, and everyone else was trying to live in it. Not today. Other than Will Power,…

Three Things (Thursday): Indy GP Edition

I know the calendar says it’s May already, but tomorrow but May really arrives Friday when the NTT IndyCar Series officially takes to the road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis. Here are a few things that are on my mind: Will Penske stay perfect? Team Penske has won four of the…

Three Things: Open Test

Rain was one of the big stories of the day at the NTT Data IndyCar test at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Wednesday afternoon. Fortunately, between the veterans and rookies and refreshers, fans got to see around three hours of cars on track. Here’s what I took away from the test. Calling for a tow. As has…

There Are No Guarantees

What’s the NTT IndyCar Series without a little bit of drama? As usual, it’s drama we can do without. During the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach weekend, groundswell started that Team Penske owner Roger Penske was on record as saying that full-time entries should have a guaranteed spot in the Indianapolis 500. As the…
