Stefan Wilson Tag

By Kirby Arnold, Staff Writer INDIANAPOLIS – Inside the garage at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, nearly a dozen engineers and mechanics hovered over a project that looked like a complex erector set and hardly the sleek race car it would become.

ABC Supply 500 Pre-Race Observations

By Christopher DeHarde, Staff Writer LONG POND, PA — Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway for the Verizon IndyCar Series has the potential to be a great race but quite unpredictable.

Alexander Rossi on Back Row of Indy 500
