Latest IndyCar News and Commentary

Alonso will win this year's Indy 500
  by Andrew Maitland
It must be a little weird to be as good as Fernando Alonso. But while his career is somewhat of a baffling rollercoaster right now, he's laying the foundation of what could become the new and unprecedented benchmark for a life in motorsport not just well spent, but eternally remembered and never matched or surpassed. It's tempting to think it hasn't been a perfect ride for the mercurial Spaniard who is now equally well-known on both sides of the pond, but I think that's just plain wrong. Fernando Alonso's career was just so ... Fernando Alonso.

As IndyCar & IMSA go hybrid, auto industry dumps it
  A Day late and a Dollar Short
A Day Late And a Dollar Short, isn't that the life story of IndyCar and IMSA?  After dragging their feet with hybridization of their power units for their top categories - IndyCars and Daytona DPi prototypes - when the automobile industry was spending tons of money on R&D on hybrid engines for their passenger cars, they recently had a Come to Jesus moment and decided they must now implement hybrid power by 2022.

Any while you may have read the picture is all rosy for IndyCar, don't believe the FAKE NEWS as we present the raw data and an analysis on the raw data to present the true picture.  So much of what we read in the media today is slanted and bias reporting, it is hard for people to know what's real and what's fake.

Top INDYCAR Stories of 2019
  Can you guess the #1?
While INDYCAR enjoyed several intriguing stories during this year's NTT IndyCar Series season, the blockbuster came after the season when Roger Penske announced that Penske Corporation would be acquiring Indianapolis Motor Speedway, INDYCAR and additional Hulman & Company holdings. The November announcement was no doubt the most captivating story of 2019 for INDYCAR, but it also ranked among the top stories in all of motorsports with its worldwide interest.
What should IndyCar do to stir the global giant?
  by Andrew Maitland
If you take a glance at the IndyCar field, there are some names that don't necessarily sound like they grew up eating hot dogs, glazed doughnuts, breaded tenderloin sandwiches, and biscuits and gravy for breakfast. Alexander Rossi may be from California, but he shares a surname with a flamboyant MotoGP legend who refuses to even acknowledge the existence of the letter 'h' when repeatedly pronouncing how 'appy' he is. More importantly, Rossi only returned from Europe once it was clear his flirt with Formula 1 hadn't really worked out.

Why do F1 drivers look down on IndyCar?
  by Andrew Maitland
Nico Hulkenberg, a veteran of ten years in Formula 1 and a grand total of zero podiums let alone wins, says he's not very interested in IndyCar. Okidoke. At the grand old age of 32, which admittedly is getting on a bit in today's world of over-achieving teenagers, it seems he would rather sit at home rather than rub wheels at 225 mph on the Texas Motor Speedway. "I have a lot of respect for those who race on ovals, it's just not my thing," the German, who has been unable to find an alternate race seat in Formula 1 for 2020 after being ousted by Renault, says confidently. Why would that be? Could it be the danger?
For IndyCar, Penske is the game-changer it needed
  by Brian Carroccio
There are numerous questions that arise following Monday’s shock announcement that Penske Entertainment has purchased the NTT INDYCAR Series and Indianapolis Motor Speedway from Hulman & Co. The IndyCar world we all awoke to Monday morning is now forever changed. What exactly Mr. Penske transforms this new world into remains to be seen. But with The Captain in charge there is – finally – hope! And for longtime followers of the sport that can be nothing but good.
