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)
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

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)

A great race capping off a great weekend of both on and off track activity.
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.
We’ve had four races, numerous controversies, and a fan base that is already stirred up. Yes. The 2019 INDYCAR Season is already on the move. Looking at the season, back in March (which you can read HERE), I had five things I was excited about. We’re not yet halfway through the season, and yes I’m … Continue reading 2019 – Incredible INDYCAR Season So Far
