It’s What We All Need (2020 Indy 500 Preview)

We have been waiting for this. For months when the season first started, and then additional months when it was moved from May to August. We switched from saying “Is it May Yet” to “Is it August Yet”, and yes some of us used that as a password (not anymore, work makes me switch my … Continue reading It’s What We All Need (2020 Indy 500 Preview)

There’s a lot of corn and speed (Iowa 250s Review)

As was said throughout the broadcast (and even our most recent podcast - which you can listen to here), the INDYCAR series went from double headers at the longest track in the series to doubleheaders at the shortest track. The Iowa Speedway comes in at 0.875 miles, and the drivers this past weekend each evening … Continue reading There’s a lot of corn and speed (Iowa 250s Review)

A Tale of Two Races and One Weekend (REV Group Grand Prix 2020 Review)

Well if we thought everything had changed before the AMR Grand Prix last weekend, this weekend proved once again the only constant in INDYCAR is change.

GMR Review: Good, Bad, Ugly,…and the Heat

If you weren’t aware, it was hot in Indianapolis this past weekend. Temperatures hit the 90s (I know this both from the fourteen thousand times they mentioned it during the race coverage and from working on my COVID-19 Project of rebuilding my screen porch). That was a big concern going into this race. Additionally, there … Continue reading GMR Review: Good, Bad, Ugly,…and the Heat

It’s the GMR Grand Prix, but It’s Not May (A Preview)

When preparing for the GMR Grand Prix (formerly the INDYCAR Grand Prix) I get nostalgic for the pre-COVID-19 world. Since the race’s beginnings in 2014, it served as the opening weekend for May. The race provides a State fair like atmosphere with families and friends spread out over mounds among the road course at the … Continue reading It’s the GMR Grand Prix, but It’s Not May (A Preview)

I See Race Cars in Texas

I’ve found myself repeating “cars will be on track Saturday” when I wanted to smack my head against my desk this week. I’m sure I’m not the only person who has found this as a mantra. We should have had eight races by now, instead we’ve had nearly twelve-weeks of waiting. There are a lot … Continue reading I See Race Cars in Texas

The Times the Indy 500 Was Canceled and Three Rain Moves

Hopefully the news has settled in, and everyone has come to some sort of acceptance that May of 2020 won’t be the May we’ve come to know and love.

We’re ending the season in St. Petersburg after we tried … Continue reading The Times the Indy 500 Was Canceled and Three Rain Moves
