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…

Barber – Sunday – Morning Warmup Times

By Joe Berkemeier Spent much of the morning warmup on pit lane talking to teams and listening to the scanner to radio traffic. To be frank, the mood among the Honda teams is not good. And the scanner traffic – “top Honda is 69.5”, “you’re pretty good for a Honda” – tells its own story….

    • 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

    • 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 […]
