Barber – Sunday – Close

Well, Joe was wrong about that race in the best way possible. He thought that this race might end up being a snoozer with little passing. Instead, differing fuel strategies played out to a pretty entertaining finish and what (for my money) was the best race of the season. Even better?  Josef Newgarden broke through...

    • 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.

    • Q&A: Printup talks future of WGI, IndyCar, Phish

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