Slippery When Wet (MidOhio 2020 Review)

You can choose many themes for 2020. For the NTT INDYCAR season, it’s going to be “Double-Headers”. Given the upheavel in everyone’s lives, the series determined that multiple races would be turned into double-header weekend spectacles.

A Tale of Two Races (Bommarito 500 Review)

We as fans received the opportunity to watch INDYCAR in person. We got a weekend with two completely different races at the same racetrack. Worldwide Technology Raceway Park asked us to socially distance and to wear masks. I’ll say that as far as compliance goes, it was great. I’d put it at only 5% of … Continue reading A Tale of Two Races (Bommarito 500 Review)

Hinch On Track and Off Track (You’re Welcome for the Pun)

It seems harder now, looking back, to say that this particular announcement was the most shocking one in the 2019/2020 INDYCAR Silly Season. While many of us had hope that Arrow McLaren SP switching from Honda to Chevrolet engines would mean James Hinchcliffe would have a ride, deep down everyone knew it was a long … Continue reading Hinch On Track and Off Track (You’re Welcome for the Pun)

Unionization – A Primer and Players

It’s been a pretty traumatic silly season. We’ve had teams completely reform, dropping their flagship drivers. It is a similar refrain of each silly season: good drivers don’t have rides and any deal made can be crumpled up and thrown away. It was over a year ago that James Hinchcliffe made the very unexpected public … Continue reading Unionization – A Primer and Players
