By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The mission for Arrow McLaren SP was to battle for the race win during Saturday’s Iowa INDYCAR 250 at Iowa Speedway. That wasn’t the case as two caution periods and pit sequences denied both Oliver Askew and Pato O’Ward a shot for a 1-2 result, a goal they’ve hoped to have accomplished. For much of the 250-lap race, it was O’Ward who had the strongest car among the two all night and appeared to be the only threat for pole sitter Josef Newgarden as O’Ward wasRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer As the old saying goes – Lap 1, Turn 1 creates chaos. The old phrase came at full song when Ryan Hunter-Reay and Graham Rahal became victims of Will Power’s aggressive moves in Sunday’s REV Group Grand Prix at Road America. The first one out was Hunter-Reay, who was sandwiched between Scott Dixon and Graham Rahal before getting drilled by Power in Turn 1. The “wrecking ball” move as Hunter-Reay described it, sent him out of control and wound up stuck in the gravel which endedRead More

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Much like last Friday’s qualifying session at Indianapolis, Will Power (1:46.0021) dethrones Jack Harvey for top honors at the last second. Only this time, it was during the only practice session of the whole doubleheader weekend at Road America. Rather than seeing how the red Firestone compounds fare at the beginning of the session like Josef Newgarden, who held the top spot for much of the period with a time of 1:46.1914, several competitors decided to wait until the final 12 minutes to set blazing lapRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Team Penske’s Will Power led the way during Friday’s 90-minute practice session at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course with a time of 69.9487 seconds, the only man to go clock in under 70 seconds.
