Realistic Rides For Danica Patrick For Daytona and Indy

INDIANAPOLIS – We’re a month away from the 60th Running of the Daytona 500. We’re a little over four months away from the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500. Those are two of the most iconic races in the world and two that Danica Patrick is trying to end her racing career in. Patrick, 35, announced back in November that she would not longer search for a full time ride in any series for 2018. Without much open, it was best she moved on with her professional career and turn the…

Indy 500 “One-Off” List So Far a Talented One, Possibly Best List Ever

INDIANAPOLIS – We now have 28 cars already lined up for the 102nd Running of the Indianapolis 500. There’s a strong possibility of that number pushing 30 just past the New Year. But, out of those 28 cars, a few of them are known one-offs. There’s also a few drivers that don’t have rides for the ‘500 yet that will certainly get one. So, at the moment, would you take a “one-off” to win next May’s Indianapolis 500 or a full-time driver? Logic states that you’d pick a driver that races…

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…

INDYCAR Car Counts Growing In a Positive Way For 2018

INDIANAPOLIS – No one really knew what to expect as far as what the car count would be for the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season. Last year, we saw 22 cars show up to every race. This season though, there’s a new car debuting. While that transition is going to pay off to be very cost effective, without a third OEM still, we’re still going to be capped off on what we could see as far as full-time entries go in the series. Last season, Honda provided 13 of those 21…

Harvey Coming Back To SPM Perfect For Young Driver

INDIANAPOLIS – I’ve been banging the Jack Harvey drum for several years now. Since the young British driver came on the scene in Indy Lights in 2014, I could tell the kid could drive. Harvey, having never been to any of the North American tracks before, had four wins (all in the last five races), 10 podiums and a top five finish in all 14 races during his rookie season in 2014. While that should earn a championship in any series you race in, unfortunately he lost out on a tiebreaker…
