A look at IndyCar Ministry
  by Lucille Dust
Tragedy struck the Verizon IndyCar Series on Monday, when driver Justin Wilson succumbed to injuries sustained in Sunday's ABC Supply Co. 500 at Pocono Raceway. The popular Wilson's passing has shocked and stunned a community that heads to Sonoma Raceway this weekend with very heavy hearts. However, there is a traveling support network the IndyCar family can turn to in such times: IndyCar Ministry.

Justin Wilson - a great racer, father and man to the end
  by Brian Carroccio
As you surely know, Verizon IndyCar Series driver Justin Wilson passed away Monday evening after succumbing to injuries sustained in a crash during Sunday’s ABC Supply Co. 500 at Pocono Raceway. The pilot of the #25 Andretti Autosport Honda had qualified seventh and spent much of the day running near the front of the field. A lap 144 pit road speed limit violation moved him outside the top-10, and he was running 13th on lap 179 when rookie leader Sage Karam spun and hit the wall exiting turn 1. Although we don't yet know the specific metrics of the impact, debris from Karam's car bounced onto the track before, gruesomely, striking an oncoming and still at speed Wilson in the helmet.

Hamilton leads 1-2 Mercedes parade at Spa
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
In what was perhaps the most boring 1-2 parade by the Mercedes team in the past two years, Lewis Hamilton waltzed to an easy win over teammate Nico Rosberg. The only thing that prevented the fans from falling asleep was Sebastian Vettel's blown tire with two laps to go while running third, up from his 9th place starting position. This allowed Romain Grosjean to get third and a podium finish for the beleaguered Lotus team.
