By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Two days of wild pit strategies and for the most part clean racing set quite a positive tone in the Harvest GP at Indianapolis. I’m more than willing to say it was some of the best racing the NTT IndyCar Series has seen at the Indy road course without rain creating that possibility. When you look at the winners, you’d think it’s super predictable because the circuit it’s still Team Penske’s playground with Josef Newgarden and Will Power victorious. Rest assure, they had to earn itRead More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer The race that literally got its race confirmed a week ago came and went with some captivating takeaways. This weekend’s Honda Indy 200 doubleheader at Mid-Ohio saw guys getting their grips together that brought much needed positives to this rather topsy turvy NTT IndyCar Series season.

The latter team in particular, it was easily their best weekend they’ve had in a real long time andRead More

Newgarden, driving the No. 1 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet, pitted for the final time on Lap 153 from the third position to try to undercut the leaders and gain time on them.

By Luis Torres, Staff Writer Will Power may have gotten a podium in Sunday’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500, but he wasn’t fully satisfied with a third-place result after leading 40 of 200 laps at World Wide Technology Raceway. Once again, clean air was the name of the game for any NTT IndyCar Series competitor that had the luxury of leading the race. The only way a driver could retain or lose the top spot were two ways — traffic and indeed pit stops which have really come to define many 2020Read More
By Luis Torres, Staff Writer An uncharacteristic moment unfolded at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday as Team Penske failed to have one of its four drivers advance into the Fast Nine shootout (Sunday at 1 p.m. on NBC) for the 104th Running of the Indianapolis 500. It’s the first time Penske has been shut out of the first three rows since 2002 as two-time NTT IndyCar Series champion Josef Newgarden qualified no better than 13th, while the other three drivers, all former Indy 500 champions, failed to crack the top-20. NewgardenRead 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
