Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

JR Hildebrand Doesn’t Shy Away From Talking About Epic Loss In Final Stages of Indy 500

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Wow, what a finish at the Indianapolis 500. Rookie JR Hildebrand won't soon forget it that's for sure. Unfortunately for him and his team, Panther Racing, it's for all the wrong reasons. Hildebrand looked to have the race in the bag only to crash into a wall in the final ...

Dan Wheldon Wins the Indy 500 Thanks to JR Hildebrand’s Crash in the Final Turn

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Dan Wheldon insists he wasn't thinking it, but it's impossible for me to believe him. Wheldon, who was racing in the Indianapolis 500 on just a one-race contract, sat in second place entering the final turns. If it were me, I'd have to be thinking that was an outstanding finish ...

Mario Andretti: Missing Racing This Time of Year, Obviously

Friday, May 22nd, 2009

Mario Andretti is (obviously, right?) the greatest IndyCar racer ever. [Aside: Yes, it is hyperbole day for me. Thanks for asking.] And you have to think that, like all great athletes, when an important event in his former sport rolls around that he gets a little nostalgic. You would be correct, actually. ...

Indy Winners Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti on the 500

Friday, May 8th, 2009

I don't watch a lot of open wheel racing. That doesn't necessarily make it any less awesome, it's just that I have a pretty, pretty full schedule when it comes to sports on the tee-vee screen. But the Indy 500, much like the Triple Crown in horse racing, is an exception. ...
