Lewis Hamilton Has New Fight on His Hands With Sebastian Vettel

The last few years, the only real challenger to Lewis Hamilton in Formula One competition has been his Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg. The duo were by far the class of the field. But, when Rosberg decided to retire following his championship in 2016, mixed with a new car for the 2017 season, the gap between Hamilton and the rest of the teams has shortened. In fact, Hamilton has a new fight on his hands, and it’s not a Mercedes teammate. Hamilton, picked up his ninth straight podium finish last weekend…

Ferrari Off to Best Start to Formula 1 Season in 9 Years

When Sebastian Vettel crossed the finish line first on Sunday night in Bahrain, it marked the best start for Ferrari in nine seasons. The win in Bahrain was Vettel’s third all-time victory in the desert, and 44th of his Formula One career. But, it was also his second of the season, as the German also won the season opening race in Australia too. Two wins in three tries for the Ferrari driver, marks the first time that Ferrari has won two of the first three races in an F1 season…

Windom, Boespflug Win USAC Sprints Races Last Weekend in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS – If the first five races are any indicator on how this year’s USAC Sprint car season is going to go, it could be a wild, tight battle until we crown a champion at Perris Auto Speedway in November. We’ve had four different winners in the first five races with a points battle for the ages. Just two points separate the top two in the standings and 39 markers between the top three. This past weekend, there was a USAC Sprints doubleheader in Indiana, with a showdown at Bloomington Speedway…

Marco Andretti Sleeper to Watch This Weekend at Barber

INDIANAPOLIS – Its been a long 95 races since Marco Andretti last went to victory lane at the Iowa Speedway in 2011. But, that six-year winless drought could soon come to an end. In fact, in my mind, it could come to an abrupt stop this weekend. After a week off, the Verizon IndyCar Series returns to action this weekend at the Barber Motorsports Park. For Andretti, after the first two races of the 2017 season, he’s anxious to get back in his No. 27 Honda and make more noise this…

Will Andretti Autosport Be The Team to Beat This Weekend at Barber, Friday Shows They Just May Be

Leeds, Ala – If not for the electrical issues at Long Beach, its been an improved start to the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season for the entire Andretti Autosport team. After struggling on road/street courses the last few years, they’ve shown some great improvement through the first two races of this season, both of which were on street courses. Now, it’s onto the Barber Motorsports Park for this weekend’s race, the first of the year not on a street circuit. Andretti cars have typically done well at Barber with Marco Andretti having…

Scott Dixon Looking for that Elusive 1st Victory at Barber

Leeds, Ala – Scott Dixon has won 40 Verizon IndyCar Series races over the course of his storied career. That feat ranks fourth all-time. One track thought that’s not part of those 40 victories is the site of this weekend’s race – the Barber Motorsports Park. That in turn has frustrated the Chip Ganassi Racing driver, as Dixon has been stellar on the 2.23-mile Alabama road course. In his first six starts there, he finished on the podium each time. He had four straight second place finishes (2010-2013) followed by two straight…

Kevin Harvick Looking for 1st Cup Win Of the 2017 Season

It’s strange to that that we’re seven races into the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, and Kevin Harvick has yet to win a race so far. Harvick, by far was the top driver to beat at Atlanta in the second race of the season back in early March, but a pit road speeding penalty with 15 laps-to-go ruined that. He really hasn’t been that close since that race outside of a fourth place finish in the last race at Texas. Other than that, Harvick has no other top five finishes…
