By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson had his much anticipated NTT IndyCar Series test with Chip Ganassi Racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course Tuesday. It was third time’s a charm as the COVID-19 pandemic postponed an initial test with Arrow McLaren SP at Barber Motorsports Park back in March. Even earlier this month, Johnson was supposed to test with Ganassi following the “Indy Crossover” before testing positive for COVID-19, forcing him to miss his first NASCAR Cup race. On his way to theRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Will Power may have finished second during Saturday’s Iowa INDYCAR 250 at Iowa Speedway, but the biggest victory may have been the fact it was for once a normal outing. Following Friday night’s disastrous exit where his left front wheel wasn’t fully installed that resulted in a Turn 4 crash, Power didn’t have to worry about any catastrophic problems that’s come to define the past few NTT IndyCar Series campaigns, including this year. While his Team Penske teammate Josef Newgarden put on an absolute clinic atRead More

By INDYCAR ELKHART LAKE, Wisconsin – If Race 1 of the REV Group Grand Prix presented by AMR Doubleheader was any indication, it’s going to take more than an action-packed race and a series of late-race cautions to beat Scott Dixon in 2020.

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 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
