By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Chip Ganassi Racing has been all the rage when it comes to its 2021 NTT IndyCar Series lineup because they have quite the diverse lineup unlike any other team in the paddock.

However, it’s the other two new signees and one leaving is what I’d like to dive further on how I feel about those changes. Obviously,Read More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer After four months of whirlwind NTT IndyCar Series competition, it’s time to call it a season this weekend at St. Petersburg. What was supposed to be the season opener until the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic changed the sport as we know it, is now the finale site with two guys fighting for the championship. Leading the trail after 13 rounds is Scott Dixon, who has led the points since the beginning and hopes to become the first man winning the Astor Cup wire-to-wire. To do so,Read More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Alas, the final NTT IndyCar Series doubleheader has finally arrived to kick off the final month of what can be best described as a glass case of emotions. Already we’ve seen those emotions kick into high gear with silly season madness before the Harvest Grand Prix can even get going. After a real underwhelming campaign by Zach Veach, Andretti Autosport have pulled the plug on keeping the 25-year-old, who hasn’t finished in the top-10 since the season opener at Texas where he finished fourth. The decisionRead More

With him sitting out, he’ll now have to go through the sanctioning body’s Return to Racing Protocol as he had two significant crashes in a span of a week last month. “This was an incrediblyRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Pato O’Ward went from fighting for the win to finishing third in Saturday’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway. Throughout the day, O’Ward’s No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet had a car strong in clean air as he led a race-high 94 of 200 laps, but things started to change when he made his final pit stop on Lap 163. O’Ward was slowly being chased down by second place Scott Dixon, so when the duo pitted, the chase was on where a slightRead More

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The pageantry of the Indianapolis 500 is over, but the madness NTT IndyCar Series provides continues as they’re now entering the second half of the season with some drivers still searching for answers while others have stood out at a positive light. Simply put, there’s no other track that could carry good momentum the 500 provided but a Gateway doubleheader where it has been a fan favorite over the past few years. Unlike previous races, there’s a big catch. Those races were held at night. NotRead More
