BY BRUCE MARTIN @BruceMartin_500 ELKHART LAKE, Wisconsin – Rumors of Team Penske’s demise in the Verizon IndyCar Series have been greatly exaggerated.

Mazda Road To Indy #SoulRedFinale – Pro Mazda and Indy Lights qualifying results and notes

Good morning from a foggy Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. After being unseasonably warm the last two days, it appears that the weather “broke” overnight and it will cooler today. It was “only” 57F when I arrived at the track at 7:15am and the high is supposed to top out at 74F. I lied when I […]

    • Long Beach’s Grand Prix report is $150K worth of obvious points
      That report was made public Monday afternoon, and it’s loaded with an absence of surprises, although there are a few bits of weirdness involved. Rather than submit what KPMG said would be an ideal computer-aided design plan for the proposed F1 track that would identify all mandatory components required following FIA (the governing body of […]
    • Here’s who won the race between Formula 1 and IndyCar in Long Beach
      In October last year the city released a request for proposals seeking “an open-wheel auto racing format” to run the annual Grand Prix event.

Paul Conor Dana, at age 9, knows that his father was Paul Dana, a journalist and IndyCar driver who died in March 2006 during […]
