By Dave Reininger (IndyCar) and Steve Wittich (Indy Lights).  Compiled by Patrick Stephan Well as usual get away day is stressful no time day, so I’ll just get Dave and Steve’s previews out the door and then I’ll send my overly long mostly non-racing related update out with tomorrow’s first posting of the day. Let’s...

St. Pete Race Day – FINAL

By Patrick Stephan Ok, let’s go ahead and wrap things up from St. Petersburg, Florida (or to be 100% transparent – from somewhere in the sky between Tampa and Denver as I finish this one up from seat 27A of the SouthWest Airlines flight home).  I will admit to just barely making this “optimistically” scheduled...

St. Pete IndyCar Series Notes and Results

By Patrick Stephan And now the main event.  The Verizon IndyCar Series Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg got off to a fairly clean start. Though there was some bumping and banging in the pack.  This resulted in flat tires for Takuma Sato and James Hinchcliffe.  Sato’s tire issue because evident as he locked up...

St. Pete – Race Day – Pre-Race Notes

By Patrick Stephan Well, that was an interesting and busy morning!  Quite surprised that Will Power will not be driving today, but fully respectful of the decision (a very tough one) to put Oriol Servia in to the car.  That seems prudent, particular in light of how physical this race will be today, and in...

Welcome to Race Day in St. Pete – Servia in Warm-up for Power

By Patrick Stephan Well, the best laid out schedules – don’t always work out.  As the sun came up at the track (something I got to see – which was beautiful), we immediately started hearing that Oriol Servia will drive the warm-up in the #12 car for Will Power who remains ill. TSO saw Servia...

St. Pete – Verizon IndyCar Series Qualifying Notes and Results

By Patrick Stephan Note, that issue at the end of practice earlier was actually Bourdais and Aleshin. I’d previously said it was Kanaan. Sorry for the error – and we still don’t know exactly what happened, but clearly the Frenchman was not happy with the Russian. The first group featured a lot of Andretti Autosport...

    • 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. From the start it was only a two-horse race between Michaelian and Pook. Pook, of course, was hardly a carpetbagger. He founded the Long Beach Grand Prix in 1975 and brought […]
    • Q&A: Printup talks future of WGI, IndyCar, Phish
      Everybody was excited, but I take a lot of personal interest in IndyCar. I always have. I kind of grew up in IndyCar, so I was glad that we were able to get them back. The fans themselves, for only having a little bit less than 90 days to sell the race last year, we […]
    • Rick Mears – still the ultimate pro at 65
      Over the past 20-something years writing about racing, I’ve encountered three people from whom I learn something about the art of racecar driving every time we speak for longer than five minutes. One of that trio is Rick Ravon Mears, born this day 65 years ago in Wichita, Kansas, and brought up in Bakersfield, Calif. […]
    • Memoir helps widow cope after IndyCar driver's death
      Tonya Bergeson-Dana talks with her son, Conor, about his father when he brings it up, which is often. If he’s asking the questions, she reasons, he’s ready to hear the answers. Paul Conor Dana, at age 9, knows that his father was Paul Dana, a journalist and IndyCar driver who died in March 2006 during […]
