‘Turbo’: A sorta-critic’s review

Full Disclosure: The writer was a movie critic for the Huntington News, the campus newspaper of Northeastern University, during the early years of his college life. "Turbo," Dreamworks' latest offering that centers around a garden snail's dream of victory at the Indianapolis 500, isn't a champion. As pointed out already by folks far better at […]

Random thoughts and outbursts

The first half of the IZOD IndyCar Series season was littered with upsets from the smaller teams in the paddock – Takuma Sato and A.J. Foyt Racing at Long Beach, Tony Kanaan and KV Racing at the Indianapolis 500, and Mike Conway (Dale Coyne Racing) and Simon Pagenaud (Schmidt-Hamilton Motorsports) at Detroit. But as the […]

On to “Old Milwaukee”

I was meaning to do this last night, but I had some obligations to take care of. Thus, I'll keep my thoughts on last weekend's race at Texas Motor Speedway relatively brief since we're already just two days away from the Milwaukee IndyFest. I think IndyCar went a step too far with the downforce removal, […]

Thoughts from Detroit

Right from the beginning, we should have known that this was going to be a strange weekend after the Indianapolis 500 for the IZOD IndyCar Series. Friday's lone practice session before the Chevrolet Indy Dual in Detroit had already featured two red flags in its opening minutes (it would eventually have SIX of them altogether) […]

From the ’500′ to the Motor City

So, now it begins. The third season. The battle for the championship. Gripes about how IndyCar should add a green-white-checkered rule aside, the Indianapolis 500 was everything we could have hoped for and more: The fastest '500' ever, the most lead changes ever, and one of its most popular champions ever in Tony Kanaan, who […]

It’s been a while…Hasn’t it?

Today is race morning in Indianapolis. To the left of me, the sun is rising, trying to rise above the cloud cover. Rain may be involved in the forecast, but hopefully that will hold off until after we're done here today at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. As you've probably surmised, I'd been rather busy lately […]

Buddy Lazier returns to the “500″

Buddy Lazier has become the fourth former winner of the Indianapolis 500 to have an entry submitted for the 97th running of "The Greatest Spectacle in Racing." Lazier Partners Racing, owned by Buddy's father and 1981 "500" starter Bob Lazier, will field the No. 91 Chevrolet with no backup "T" car. It serves as the […]

IndyCar race director speaks on Sato’s moves in Sao Paulo

Takuma Sato was twice reviewed by IndyCar Race Control in the closing laps of Sunday's Sao Paulo Indy 300 for his rather defensive tactics to protect the lead from both Josef Newgarden and James Hinchcliffe. No action was taken against the A.J. Foyt Racing driver on both counts, who was eventually passed by Hinchcliffe on […]

Hinchcliffe, Sato deliver finish for the ages in Sao Paulo

http://youtube.com/watch?v= OvsUHspjgAs[/youtube] After battling each other wheel-to-wheel in one of the most electric finishes in IZOD IndyCar Series history, there was nothing left for James Hinchcliffe and Takuma Sato to do but smile, laugh, and share an embrace. Two of the best this series has to offer in terms of on-track talent and off-track humility […]

Notes: Marco brimming with newfound confidence

http://youtube.com/watch?v= X05zhCO1rk0[/youtube] It appears that Marco Andretti didn't just work on his driving over the off-season. Just go back to the IZOD IndyCar Series' most recent round at Long Beach. The third-generation driver was stuck with a 25th place starting position after being penalized for what INDYCAR saw as a blocking penalty during qualifying. Andretti […]
