By Christopher DeHarde, Staff Writer A set of circumstances that probably has not happened before in Indy car racing history should not be what defines everybody’s memory of the Honda Indy 200. Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is 2.258 miles of hilly, crazy pavement with few passing opportunities. Scott Dixon’s red alternate sidewall tires began to wear off as the race concluded, allowing several cars one lap down to queue up behind the five-time (and defending) series champion. They were all as fast, if not faster, than the 2008 Indianapolis 500 winner.Read More

Rosenqvist had to play catch up to Dixon after making threeRead More

Carlin’s Month of May at Indianapolis was one to forget after only Charlie Kimball made the field while Max Chilton and Pato O’Ward missed the race. Then lead engineer Geoff Fickling left the team and Steve Barker stepped in. Finally, Carlin announced Tuesday that Daly will replace Chilton in Saturday’s DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway as he’llRead More
