Indy 500 Battle Could Be Fight Between Andretti Autosport and Chip Ganassi Racing

INDIANAPOLIS – It looks like it’s shaping up to be another Honda dominated Indianapolis 500. Last year, Honda drivers led 129 of the 200 laps in the 100th Running of the event, and with an aerokit freeze in the offseason, there wasn’t much Chevrolet could do to close the gap between the two manufacturers on superspeedways since.

Bad Start, 1st Lap Wreck Causes Mayhem in Saturday Night’s IndyCar Race at Phoenix

Avondale, AZ – The start of Saturday night’s Desert Diamond West Valley Phoenix Grand Prix was about as bad of a start as it could have been. It all started when the leaders for some reason decided to start going in Turn 3 which caused the back few rows to start single file.
