This time it was the opening lap of Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 as jockeying for position at the Long Pond Straight went completely wrong as five drivers were collected in the Turn 2 accident. The five guys were Takuma Sato, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Felix Rosenqvist, James Hinchcliffe and championship contender Alexander Rossi.

Newgarden Dominates Iowa. Again.

By Christopher DeHarde, Staff Writer NEWTON, Iowa — After a frustrating loss at Iowa in 2018 to James Hinchcliffe, Josef Newgarden put everything together to win the Iowa 300 at Iowa Speedway. The 2017 NTT IndyCar Series champion put together a complete 300 laps for his fourth win of the 2019 IndyCar season, leading 245 laps and extending his championship lead to 29 points over sixth place finisher Alexander Rossi. Scott Dixon finished second in a race that could have been much worse for the five-time series champion. After falling aRead More
By INDYCAR TORONTO (Saturday, July 13, 2019) – As Team Penske driver Simon Pagenaud completed what proved to be a pole-winning lap in Saturday’s Honda Indy Toronto qualifying session at Exhibition Place, NTT IndyCar Series rivals were sliding off pace. Alexander Rossi of Andretti Autosport bounced off the outside wall in Turn 6, and Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon spun early in his final timed lap. Neither probably had the speed to match Pagenaud, but it made for an adventurous watch in the Firestone Fast Six qualifying session. “Yeah, thatRead More
By Christopher DeHarde, Staff Writer TORONTO — Robert Wickens will drive a parade lap in front of the entire NTT IndyCar Series field before Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto in a specially prepared Acura NSX with hand controls. Although if Wickens has his way, that might last a little bit longer. “I’m trying to figure out what that penalty would be if I just kept going,” said Wickens. Nobody would fault the Guelph, Ontario native for staying out an extra lap or two. Wickens was paralyzed after an incident last August inRead More

By Christopher DeHarde, Staff Writer DETROIT — Turn 3 was calamity corner during Sunday’s part of the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix doubleheader weekend at Belle Isle and for one driver it’s where everything went wrong while trying to extend the points lead. NTT IndyCar Series points leader Josef Newgarden was trying to defend what would effectively be third place after the second round of pit stops.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Mayhem happened on the opening lap of Sunday’s Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix Race No. 2 at Belle Isle, where a Turn 3 pileup collected seven cars. Heading into the treacherous breaking spot, an early three-car battle for eighth became disastrous when Will Power, Felix Rosenqvist, and Patricio O’Ward ran out of real estate, resulting Rosenqvist’s No. 10 NTT Honda lifting off and turned O’Ward’s No. 31 Gallagher Chevrolet being turned around in front of the field. Several cars made abrasive action to avoid the strickenRead More
By David Morgan, Associate Editor INDIANAPOLIS – Track position is the name of the game when it comes to racing at Indianapolis, but even starting at a deficit in the track position department couldn’t deter James Hinchcliffe from making a run through the field to finish just outside the top-10. After driving his way into the 33-car field in last Sunday’s Last Row Shootout, the driver of the No. 5 Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda started the day in 32nd, but quickly jumped into the top-25 before climbing even furtherRead More
