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

Bump Up the Grip (Texas Review)

Moment of honesty? I spent practice, qualification, and the race texting with Abby and Juliana (our driver analyst). We were all nervous going into the race. Texas Motor Speedway is not for the faint of heart, and there was one practice before qualifications and then right into the race. I’m pleased the nagging dread we … Continue reading Bump Up the Grip (Texas Review)

2020 St. Petersburg Preview

Unlike last blog, I am now certain when the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg is - turns out I need a vacation a lot more than I realized. The Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. It’s opportunity. It’s a fresh start. It’s the one time no one can make fun of how the last … Continue reading 2020 St. Petersburg Preview

2019 – What a Year

I’m weirdly nostalgic when it comes to the end of the year. I think I weight the new year more heavily than I do a birthday. Perhaps something about the planet as a whole doing a full revolution together, or my birthday was always right at the start of school and so it wasn’t fun. … Continue reading 2019 – What a Year

Time to Race and Relax (DXC 600 2019)

A great race capping off a great weekend of both on and off track activity.

May Doesn’t Disappoint

May doesn't disappoint. Neither does Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It was a May of winners, losers, and things to remember. Winners The obvious winner of May is Simon Pagenaud. If Will Power swept last year’s May, Simon swept and mopped the month! Starting with the INDYCAR Grand Prix, Simon put on a fantastic show the final … Continue reading May Doesn’t Disappoint

Detroit – Land of Rock n’ Surprises (Detroit Grand Prix 2019)

It’s hard to write about another race while in the midst of Indy-pression (though, this year I’m not as depressed because I’m looking forward to a lot more races in person). But unlike the drivers, I too can’t take a weekend off and so onward to the Motor City, the Dual in Detroit, Penske’s Playground, … Continue reading Detroit – Land of Rock n’ Surprises (Detroit Grand Prix 2019)
