The NTT IndyCar Series garage opens at 11…

Iowa 300 at Iowa Speedway – Friday – pre-qualifying notes – Temperature, Tempers and Qual Order

By Steve Wittich Temper(ature) I bet you won’t read from anybody else that it’s hot here at the Iowa Speedway, he said sarcastically. It’s not quite as hot as it got during the June races in Houston a few years ago, but outside of that, the morning session was the steamiest I can remember. I…

    • 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

      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 […]
