Will IndyCar Return to Texas In 2018 With a “Pack Race” Why I Hope So

INDIANAPOLIS – Now that we’re two days after the thrilling but dangerous Rainguard 600 at the Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night, my thoughts on this race remain unchanged, this is the type of racing that we need every time the Verizon IndyCar Series visits the 1.5-mile track. The only issue is, will it remain that way? Yes, I get that the 66 cautions laps were way too many. Yes, I also get that the box score says there were just six cars on the lead lap and only nine of…

Will Power Wins Crazy Rainguard 600 at Texas

Fort Worth, TX – Its safe to say, the old style of racing at the Texas Motor Speedway is back. The biggest question though is how long will it stay.

Team Penske Charges to the Front, Dominates Rainguard 600

Fort Worth, TX – I wrote earlier in the week that Team Penske’s season has gone in stages. Through the first two races of the year they’ve led just 18 total laps, or nine percent. Then, they had a dominating run in the next three races, leading all but 14 of the 425 combined laps, or 97-percent. But, they’ve had a rough stretch since, until tonight. Entering tonight, they led just 30 total laps over the last 340 total laps in the last three races, or eight percent. But, like I…

Graham Rahal’s Win Streak Ends, But He Still Finishes 4th at Texas

Fort Worth, TX – It seemed like Graham Rahal may never lose a Verizon IndyCar Series race again. After dominating last weekend on the streets of Belle Isle, Rahal won both races and entered this weekend’s race at the Texas Motor Speedway as the defending race winner. The Rahal/Letterman/Laningan Racing driver started 11th in Saturday night’s Rainguard 600 and battled his No.15 Honda all night. But, by battling his car, he was far enough back to avoid all the carnage, and was one of just a handful of cars left running…
