Munoz To Andretti a Race Winning Combination, Better Opportunity Even Than Alonso To Win

INDIANAPOLIS – On Monday afternoon, Andretti Autosport announced that for a second straight season that they will feature six cars for the prestigious Indianapolis 500. Last year, it worked to perfection with Takuma Sato taking the checkered flag first. It was the second straight ‘500 victory for the organization and third in the last four years. This time, it’s not Fernando Alonso in the sixth car, it’s Carlos Munoz. While that won’t necessarily move the needle like “Alonso Mania” did last year, it’s one that should provide an even better option…

Munoz To Rejoin Andretti Autosport for Indy Only Opportunity

INDIANAPOLIS – A familiar face will make its way back to the Andretti Autosport stable for the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500-Mile Race as Carlos Muñoz returns to the team, vying for his chance to kiss the bricks.    Muñoz made his Verizon IndyCar Series debut with Andretti Autosport at the 2013 Indianapolis 500, where he finished second, earning himself Indy 500 Rookie of the Year honors. The Colombian-native went on to compete full time with the team the following year. In 2016, Muñoz once again finished runner-up when his…

What Might Have Been For JR Hildebrand and Carlos Munoz If Indy Just Went a Little Differently

As the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season has come to a close, the turn now goes to Silly Season. With just a handful of rides still left, most already being accounted for, two drivers look to be left standing when the music stops and all the chairs are gone. JR Hildebrand was replaced with Ed Carpenter Racing by Spencer Pigot. Unless Hildebrand wants to take on the road/street course role, which honestly doesn’t make a lot of since being that he struggled on them in 2017, he’s a free agent…

AJ Foyt Racing Duo Hoping To End 2017 With Another Strong Showing at Sonoma

The status of both AJ Foyt Racing drivers beyond this weekend are relatively unknown. We know that both Conor Daly and Carlos Munoz would love to remain with the team or at least in the Verizon IndyCar Series for the 2018 season. Unfortunately, neither driver has a contract past this weekend and both would love to have a solid result in their final audition for a seat next year. What helps their cars is that since AJ Foyt Racing tested at Mid-Ohio in mid-July, things have turned drastically around for…

AJ Foyt Racing Continues To Shine With Solid Results at Watkins Glen

Watkins Glen, NY – Since AJ Foyt Racing tested at Mid-Ohio in mid-July, things have turned drastically around for their two drivers. Prior to the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio, Conor Daly and Carlos Munoz had four total top 10 finishes between them. Since? They’ve had five in four races.

Daly “Left It All Out There” In 5th Place Finish at Gateway

Madison, Ill – This was supposed to be AJ Foyt Racing’s time to shine. After two stellar test sessions at Gateway, plus some new found speed following a July Mid-Ohio test, this was their weekend to show us what they’ve got. When the dust settled in Saturday night’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500, I’d say they definitely did everything they were supposed to do. Carlos Munoz started eighth and brought his No. 14 Chevrolet home ninth. It was his second straight top 10 finish on the season as he also finished 10th…

Top 5 Sleepers For Saturday Night’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 (9 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network)

Madison, Ill – Saturday night’s Verizon IndyCar Series race at the Gateway Motorsports Park is likely going to be pretty predictable. Unfortunately, this year’s race on the 1.25-mile short track is going to be very Chevrolet/Team Penske dominated. Penske, has won five of the last six races overall and both short ovals in 2017. Chevy, has led 98-percent of the overall laps on short ovals in 2017. Penske, was 1-2-3-4 in the first practice session as well as qualifying. They’re 6+ mph better than the rest of the field.

Watch Out For AJ Foyt Racing This Weekend in Gateway

INDIANAPOLIS – Prior to the race last month at Mid-Ohio, AJ Foyt Racing took part in a Verizon IndyCar Series test at the 2.258-mile road course. That test proved to be very beneficial, even a turning point of the season for them, as the team hasn’t had much of a chance to test over the last few months. They knew they had some hills to climb, but they didn’t have the luxury of testing at tracks to figure out where to make up some of those deficiencies. At Mid-Ohio, they had…

Will Phillips Thinks Mid-Ohio Test Could Propel AJ Foyt Racing To Better Results In 2017

Lexington, OH – It’s no secret, AJ Foyt Racing is frustrated with how the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season has been going. Currently, 12 races into the year, their two car effort has them 16th (Carlos Munoz) and 19th (Conor Daly) respectively in the points standings. That’s really not much of an improvement from last year that saw Takuma Sato and Jack Hawksworth finish 17th and 20th respectively. The reason why this one is more frustrating to say the least is all due to how much effort the team has put…

Lap 151 Melee Takes Out Several Cars in Rainguard 600

Fort Worth, TX – For much of Saturday night’s Rainguard 600 at the Texas Motor Speedway, it was a thrilling lap-by-lap, side-by-side battle. Unfortunately, there were some crashes too. None bigger than the lap 151 melee that took out eight cars. It all started entering Turn 3 when Mikhail Aleshin made it three-wide between himself his teammate James Hinchcliffe and Tony Kanaan. Contact between Hinch and Kanaan sent Hinchcliffe’s No. 5 Honda spinning in front of the field making contact with Ed Jones as a result. He’d take a hard angle…
