Get In and Out (2021 Grand Prix of Portland Review)

We just can’t get through Lap 1 Turn 1 at this race can we? Is it the Chicane? Is it too ‘chicaney’? I watched the race with my family and my mom commented, during the parade laps, “that’s a dog leg” when the drivers went through the chicane. Perhaps that’s the problem? They’re coming down … Continue reading Get In and Out (2021 Grand Prix of Portland Review)

Keep Portland Fast! (2021 Grand Prix of Portland Preview)

For one reason or another (a laptop killed by a Naturday and flying straight from Bommarito to Seattle in 2018), I’ve never done a real Grand Prix of Portland Preview. Of course, 2020 had its slew of issues that we won’t dwell on. In a few short days, the drivers of the NTT INDYCAR series … Continue reading Keep Portland Fast! (2021 Grand Prix of Portland Preview)

5th Time is a Charm (Bommarito 500 2021 Review)

It’s a universal truth, as we have five years of racing to review, that the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway always provides a show. The very first year we had true teammate infighting in Team Penske. We’ve had rain providing no practice or qualifications and the drivers going right into a … Continue reading 5th Time is a Charm (Bommarito 500 2021 Review)

It’s a Freaky Circle (Bommarito Automotive Group 500 2021 Preview)

It’s time for what we’ve all come to call the home away from home race: Bommarito 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway (or as I still sometimes call Gateway). The mid-short, but not short, oval. It’s 1.5 miles in length and every corner of that track is different. With the turns, Turns 1 and 2  … Continue reading It’s a Freaky Circle (Bommarito Automotive Group 500 2021 Preview)

Good Clean Racing (Big Machine Spiked Coolers GP Review 2021)

The Big Machine Spiked Cooler Grand Prix (which I realized I kept putting the word “Vodka” in title) was a prime example of good clean racing. Good clean racing in the NTT INDYCAR Series doesn’t mean everyone follows the leader like a parade, elbows are out, and paint is traded, but we don’t get the … Continue reading Good Clean Racing (Big Machine Spiked Coolers GP Review 2021)

Hopefully It’s Not Line Dancing (Music City GP 2021 Preview)

The always correct Dolly Parton describes her home state “In my Tennessee mountain home,  Life is as peaceful as a baby's sigh”. While I will never argue with Dolly - I know this upcoming weekend will not be as peaceful as a baby’s sigh. The NTT INDYCAR Series thunders onto the Streets of Nashville Tennessee … Continue reading Hopefully It’s Not Line Dancing (Music City GP 2021 Preview)
