Road America Warm-Up/Pit Stop Practice Time Sheet and Notes

By Patrick Stephan (@TSO_Patrick) Well, sometimes we get confused and sometimes things really are confusing! Today is one of the latter! After Practice #2 we got another real practice, but it was NOT Practice #3. Instead it is labeled the Warm-Up/Pit Stop Practice. I initially thought we wouldn’t even get a time sheet. Normally for…

Road America Practice #2 Notes and Results

By Patrick Stephan (@TSO_Patrick) Well, the key to getting around Road America is very clearly to use ALL of the available race track, including some curbing and some grass/dirty areas. We saw time and again driver’s pushing the limits of both the track and themselves. Quite a few instances of big time opposite lock and…

Road America Notes as Practice #2 Starts

By Patrick Stephan (@TSO_Patrick) Couple quick notes before practice session #2 starts at an almost sunny but hazy Road America.

DXC Technology 600 – Final Post Race Notes

By Patrick Stephan (@TSO_Patrick) That was a very interesting and at least to me, entertaining race. No, there wasn’t a bunch of easy passing, and some driver’s couldn’t pass at all. But, some could! So for me, the “package” seemed to work fairly well, though not perfectly. If I had to give the package a…

    • 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 […]

      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 […]
