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
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The show will indeed go on at Mid-Ohio as the latest doubleheader weekend kicks off the final leg of the NTT IndyCar Series championship trail. Although Scott Dixon, the master of Lexington with six wins to his name, has the 96-point championship lead under control. It’s far from over and that’s what you’ll get from him because one bad weekend could change everything and that’s when Josef Newgarden and Pato O’Ward come into the mix. Fresh off a win from the second Gateway race, much neededRead 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
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer A week removed from what can be best described a youthful weekend at Road America (except Scott Dixon winning last Saturday of course), there’s no resting time as the NTT IndyCar Series wraps up its 15-day grind at Iowa Speedway for the second doubleheader of 14-round championship trail. Whether people call it a short track or an intermediate oval, one thing is certain about these next two races, the young guns aren’t afraid to mix it up with the established veterans. It was definitely the caseRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Doubleheader madness is about to kick the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series up a notch as Road America will be the first of three venues hosting two races on a single race weekend with the others being Iowa Speedway (July 17-18) and WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca (September 19-20). That in mind, it’ll be a hellacious time period for the competitors who’ve already dealt with multiple challenges ranging from the Aeroscreen making cars much warmer to finding ways of stopping the magnificent trio of Mike Hull, Michael CannonRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The NTT IndyCar Series will make its first of three stops at Indianapolis Motor Speedway this season on a historic Independence Day weekend as NASCAR will also make the trip to the landmark Indiana circuit as part of the televised billed “Indy Doubleheader.” The grand prix will kick-off the “Indy Doubleheader” as the Xfinity Series will have its inaugural race on the road course following the 80-lap race. Meanwhile, the Cup Series will be the first major race on the 2.5-mile oval as they’re hosting theRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Let’s try this again shall we! The now eighth-month wait for NTT IndyCar Series action will finally come to an end this weekend as 24 daring drivers are ready to hit the demanding oval of Texas Motor Speedway June 6 after COVID-19 delayed the start of the season. Not only the race will be on big boy NBC but will finally kick-off the Penske Era for INDYCAR and the much anticipated Aeroscreen kit at full song. Despite not having fans at the 1.5-mile oval, there’ll beRead More
