When preparing for the GMR Grand Prix (formerly the INDYCAR Grand Prix) I get nostalgic for the pre-COVID-19 world. Since the race’s beginnings in 2014, it served as the opening weekend for May. The race provides a State fair like atmosphere with families and friends spread out over mounds among the road course at the … Continue reading It’s the GMR Grand Prix, but It’s Not May (A Preview)

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)
I’ve found myself repeating “cars will be on track Saturday” when I wanted to smack my head against my desk this week. I’m sure I’m not the only person who has found this as a mantra. We should have had eight races by now, instead we’ve had nearly twelve-weeks of waiting. There are a lot … Continue reading I See Race Cars in Texas

These past few months, we’ve been spoiled. True, we’ve not had an INDYCAR race since September 22nd (142 days if you were counting). Instead we’ve had a Silly Season that just won’t quit, and we’ve had the aeroscreen testing wetting our appetite. These past few days have been a tantalizing view of what is to … Continue reading Can You Sense It?
