There have been no shortages of discussion and changes in the INDYCAR off season. In four short days, when the season officially kicks off with practice at St. Petersburg, it will be a completely different paddock and series then it was when the 2019 season wrapped up at Laguna Seca. There have been changes in … Continue reading INDYCAR 2020 Bringing Changes

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?

It is a similar refrain of each silly season: good drivers don’t have rides and any deal made can be crumpled up and thrown away. It was over a year ago that James Hinchcliffe made the very unexpected public … Continue reading Unionization – A Primer and Players
At 7am, the sun peeks over the top of the final turn, starting to case light over the track and illuminate the cars that had been driving for seventeen straight hours.

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
https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-3cp74-c9f6b9 We're doing some news (including Carb Day announcements, a woman making moves over in the UAE, and CGR leaving IMSA) before we give you a vitals check on INDYCAR Silly Season.
