Rosberg leads all the way to win Belgium GP
Ahead of Daniel Riccardo
Nico Rosberg put his Mercedes in front at the start while Max Verstappen next to him got away slow and Rosberg then motored to an easy win in the Belgium GP at Spa ahead of Daniel Riccardo and Lewis Hamilton up from last in the superior Aldo Costa masterpiece. There was a lot of carnage behind Rosberg at the start, including the two Ferraris hitting each other and Kevin Magnussen losing control at over 200 mph through Eau Rouge and hitting the barriers so hard the race had to be red-flagged while they were repaired.
Firestone 600 Post-Race Press Conference
Winner of the Firestone 600, Graham Rahal, driver of the No. 15 Rahal Letterman Lanigan Honda led only one lap tonight -- the last lap and that's all he needed to. He became the 14th driver in IndyCar history to lead only the last lap of the race and win. There was some action there at the end, cautions, so to speak, but the drivers put on a great show for the fans, and I think anybody that watched that race, they can come back next year and understand that when they come to an IndyCar race they're going to get the best racing possible.

But in that last 8 laps, racing addicts got their fix as cars went 4-wide to decide the race by 8/1000th of a second, the fifth-closest in IndyCar history. But yes, you had to wait for it.

Rosberg beats Verstappen for pole at Spa
Raikkonen third for Ferrari
Much to the disappointment of the partisan crowd, Nico Rosberg put the Aldo Costa designed Mercedes on pole ahead of the Adrian Newey designed Red Bull for Sunday's Belgium GP. It was the 28th career pole for Rosberg by a very slim margin. Verstappen and Raikkonen both came within 0.2s of snatching pole - and will be determined to get the jump when the lights go out tomorrow. Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) and Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) rounded out the top-5

IndyCar Pocono Postscript
by Brian Carroccio
In early June, it had all the makings of a runaway snooze fest. By mid-July there was some faint hope someone might be able to mount a late-season charge. Fast-forward to Monday afternoon after Will Power won the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway, and make no mistake: the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series championship battle is on. And it’s layered with more drama and intrigue than it seems many suspect. Today, AutoRacing1 will discuss those stories and more in our Pocono Postscript, starting with the man who clings to a slim lead in the series standings.
