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)

Ain’t No Bumping When You’re Gone (2020 Indy 500 Quals Preview)

In the perfect non-COVID world, we would have already discussed qualification, since they happened in May. Fans would have been in the stands every day. There would have been over thirty-three cars. Qualifications would be a weekend of triumph and heartbreak. Last year’s Juncos making it in and bumping out McLaren had us all leaping … Continue reading Ain’t No Bumping When You’re Gone (2020 Indy 500 Quals Preview)

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. In fact, everything around INDYCAR this year was thrown into upheaval. Races have been canceled or moved. We’re ending the season in St. Petersburg after we tried … Continue reading The Times the Indy 500 Was Canceled and Three Rain Moves

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)

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

The First for Me (Lyn St. James)

The 1992 Indianapolis 500 holds as one of my earliest memories of listening to the race on the radio while my father filled out the grid on the back page of the Indianapolis Star. That year there was but one woman in the race, and as a staunch girl-power third-grader I was cheering for Lyn … Continue reading The First for Me (Lyn St. James)

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
