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)

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)

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
