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)
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)
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)
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)
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

A great race capping off a great weekend of both on and off track activity.
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
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)
It was a weekend to remember. We saw the spirit of Indy start in qualifications weekend and end with one of the most perfect drivers becoming the 2019 Indianapolis 500 champion.
