Kentucky Speedway Would Love To Host A Future INDYCAR Race Again, But Says No Conversations Are In Place

INDIANAPOLIS – Instead of being North of the Border this past weekend and covering the Verizon IndyCar Series race in Toronto, I was a couple of hours south of us at the Kentucky Speedway for the eighth annual Quaker State 400 race weekend. As usual, the Kentucky Speedway knocked it out of the park. But, while I was there, a story came out on Friday afternoon that Laguna Seca would likely be coming back as a host for the INDYCAR Series for the 2019 season. That got my mind thinking, what…

Difficulty Of Charlotte ROVAL Causing Problems During Testing, Byron Sees Brakes Fail Ends Up In Hard Crash

NASCAR and Charlotte Motor Speedway come out of left field when announcing in 2017 that not only would they turn the Fall race to a race on the ROVAL but it will also remain in the playoffs as well. It was certainly a curveball thrown at all the teams. While I agree that changes to the 10 race playoff schedule needed to be made but after all the testing that we’ve seen thus far on the ROVAL, I’m skeptical on what is going to happen when they return for the…

Points Championship Heating Up With F1 Set To Go Into Summer Break With 2 More European Races

Last week, the Formula One drivers and teams had a rare week off. It was much deserved because they had a stretch of three straight race weekends prior to that. They went from France to Austria to England and now will head to Germany for this Sunday’s race and Hungary next weekend. It will cap a stretch of five races in a six week span, all of which in Europe. But, after Hungary, it’s the annual summer break for the teams as they won’t have another race until late August.…

Playoff Bubble Key Factor To Watch Sunday In New Hampshire

Alex Bowman had a car good enough to likely finish in the top 15 in last Saturday night’s race at the Kentucky Speedway. Unfortunately, he blew a right fron tire and crashed in Turn 4 as a result. He’d finish last in 40th place due to the crash. The significance of that is that Bowman held onto the 16th and final playoff spot heading into last weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race in the Bluegrass State. His crash opened the door for someone like Ricky Stenhouse Jr. to close…
