2017 Iowa Corn 300 at Iowa Speedway – Steve’s Preview

Six straight years of Andretti Autosport dominance came to an end by the time the checkered flag fell on the tenth anniversary edition of the Iowa Corn 300. Ed Carpenter Racing’s Josef Newgarden shucked (groan… oh great, there’s the first lame corn based pun) the competition while leading 282 of 300 laps on the way to...

KOHLER Grand Prix at Road America – Friday – Final – 10:30pm

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

    • 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 […]

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