Latest IndyCar News and Commentary
It's all quiet now at the Speedway
by Mark J. Cipolloni
It’s all quiet now at the greatest sports venue in America, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The crews are done tinkering with the cars, the drivers off to bed early and the maintenance crews are doing their final touches – cleaning up the trash from the past two weeks, and putting a shine on the place before the 350,000 adrenaline junkies come flowing through the gates for the 100th time to witness the greatest spectacle in racing, the Indy 500.
Winningest team owner in Indy history Like the Indy 500, Mr. Penske, too, is celebrating a milestone this year. This is his 50th year as a team owner in motorsports. And his list of accomplishments, I could be here all morning, but I think the most pertinent one for this day is that his teams have won this race a record 16 times including a year ago with Juan Pablo Montoya. To pace this year's Indy 500, Mr. Penske will be driving a 2017 Camaro SS, 50th Anniversary Edition. It's the ninth time the a Camaro has paced the field, 27th time for Chevrolet since 1948.
Today's guest won his first Verizon IndyCar Series pole position and did it for the biggest race of the season, the 100th Indianapolis 500. We welcome to the call James Hinchcliffe of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. James is the driver of the No. 5 Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda, and sits provisionally fifth in points after winning 42 points for winning the pole for Sunday's Indy 500.
by Brian Carroccio We all know this coming weekend is an important one for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Verizon IndyCar Series. The week got off to a good start with a heartwarming run to pole position by James Hinchcliffe Sunday. And you know the story. The beloved Mayor of Hinchtown of course nearly died last year in practice for the Indianapolis 500, when his legs were shish-kebabed together by a metal rod after a vicious accident. However, Hinchcliffe will lead the field of 33 to the green flag this coming Sunday.
100th Indy 500 Continues ABC Memorial Day Tradition
ESPN’s Production Includes 100 Cameras, ESPN3 Second-Screen Experience With a record 100 cameras in use, ABC will televise the historic 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, May 29 at 11 a.m. ET. Annually one of ESPN’s largest and most complex television productions, the Indianapolis 500 telecast is even larger this year with the milestone of the 100th running of the Greatest Spectacle in Racing. Airing on ABC for the 52nd consecutive year, and streaming live on WatchESPN for the first time, the telecast begins with a pre-race show at 11 a.m. and then polesitter James Hinchcliffe will lead the field of 33 to the green flag at 12:17 p.m.
by Tim Wohlford "The worst four laps of the month" is one of the more charitable things said about qualifying at Indy. A few years ago, Dario quipped that he "talked to Jesus", to which Helio replied that he thought he saw Jesus during his run. By all accounts, it's the toughest thing you can do in auto sports. And this year, everyone had to do this at least twice. When the dust settled, the crowd was treated to a thrilling shootout for the top 9 places, with James Hinchcliffe narrowly beating Josef Newgarden for the Pole. Joining them on the top row will be Ryan Hunter-Reay.
