Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Quick Race Report and Results

Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Pre-Race Notes! Strategy, Social Report, Interesting Roadside Stand!

By Patrick Stephan A little more on today’s race strategy. Only three driver’s have elected to start the race on the Firestone “red” alternate tires, and they are James Hinchcliffe (10th), Marco Andretti (13th) and Sebastien Bourdais (24th). I quickly asked a strategist for a reasonably fast car that is starting outside Top-10, why they…

Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio: Pirates, Trophy Wives/Husbands and Qualifying Groups!

By Patrick Stephan Have I mentioned how nice the weather is here? We are getting some clouds, but they are of the fluffy spread out variety that frankly is only making things better. At 1:00pm, the air temp is 72, the track is a relatively cool for 106 (thanks to having older/light colored pavement) and…

Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Practice #3 Notes and Results!

By Patrick Stephan (@TSO_Patrick) Lately, we’ve seen a couple social media incidents, where other series (ok, NASCAR) tried to claim that they were the most fan friendly on Twitter (Stewart Haas Racing and then New Hampshire Motor Speedway, both did this), and well, INDYCAR (and IMSA, NHRA) fans shot that down spectacularly. One reason is…

    • 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 […]
