My Mazda Road to Indy: Juncos Racing
  $1 million for driver Kyle Kaiser to run 3 IndyCar races
Kyle Kaiser and Juncos Racing will see a dream realized next year when they graduate together from the Mazda Road to Indy Presented by Cooper Tires to the top rung of the sport, the Verizon IndyCar Series. It is a testament to both the team’s expertise and Kaiser’s progression, which culminated in this year’s Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires title and the Mazda scholarship, that helps to make their dream a reality.
Castroneves, Montoya adapting as Full-Time IMSA drivers
  Their IndyCar careers are over

Helio Castroneves and Juan Pablo Montoya have accomplished many great things during their racing career. Castroneves is a three-time Indy 500 champion, 30-time IndyCar race winner and is a previous winner of Motul Petit Le Mans. Montoya owns two Indy 500 winner’s rings, an IndyCar championship, victories in Formula 1 and the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, and three Rolex 24 At Daytona wins. But the 2018 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship will be a new experience for both, as full-time sports car racers for Acura Team Penske

Q&A with new Ganassi Racing driver Ed Jones

Chip Ganassi Racing (CGR) announced that 22-year-old British driver Ed Jones has joined the team’s Verizon IndyCar Series program in the No. 10 NTT DATA Honda beginning in 2018, teaming up with four-time INDYCAR Champion, Indianapolis 500 Winner and 41-time race winner Scott Dixon. The 2017 INDYCAR Rookie of the Year scored a best finish of third at the Indianapolis 500 this season after taking the Indy Lights Championship in 2016 on the strength of two wins and nine podium finishes.
America was once in love with the car and racing boomed
  by Stephen Cox

The past few years have brought every gimmick imaginable to auto racing. NASCAR holds races that three people can win. The ever-changing playoff system (a gimmick in itself) functions like an automotive version of musical chairs. Indycar's gimmicks are even worse.

2018 Verizon IndyCar Series schedule
  Portland replaces Watkins Glen

Consistency and stability, plus the return of a favored track in the Pacific Northwest, highlight INDYCAR’s announcement of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series schedule that again contains 17 races. Sixteen of the 17 races from this year’s exciting and momentum-building season return in 2018, with most falling in the same spot on the calendar to further capitalize on their date equity. The newcomer to next year’s schedule is Portland International Raceway, which hosted Indy car races under CART and Champ Car sanction from 1984-2007, including what is still the closest race finish in Indy car history on a road or street course. The Portland event is set for Labor Day weekend in 2018.

Pagenaud wins race, Newgarden title at Sonoma
  2nd place for Newgarden gives young American title

Simon Pagenaud used a 4 pitstop strategy to get out ahead of then race leader Josef Newgarden after the final pitstop to win the Sonoma Go-Pro Grand Prix, but it was not enough to overtake Newgarden for the 2017 IndyCar title. Will Power was right behind Newgarden at the end to give Team Penske a 1-2-3 finish and a 1-2-3 in the championship. Scott Dixon came home 4th while Helio Castroneves rounded out the top-5 in what might be his last IndyCar race.
