Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Warm-Up Notes and Results

By Patrick Stephan Walking around during the warm-up was nice. I need to do that more often. I spent most of the time in pit lane, just watching the teams work and talking to some friends. And I’m going to admit…it was nice to just absorb the fun of being at the track. Too often...

Honda Indy 200 and Mid-Ohio Qualifying Results

By Patrick Stephan (@TSO_Patrick) Qualifying starts with the ambient temp at 82, track at 111, and humidity at 51%. We have a breeze blowing nicely here that I didn’t really notice this morning. Looks like it would push your car a little wider at Turn 1, and be mostly a headwind at Turn 4. Round...

Mid-Ohio Random Notes and Qualifying Groups

By Patrick Stephan (TSO_Patrick) Watching the Indy Lights race, the track seemed pretty slick early in the running. One possible culprit would be the Stadium Super Trucks, who ran their first race of the weekend just prior to the Lights event. Tomorrow’s schedule has the SST running before the NTT IndyCar Series, so we should...

    • 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 […]
