Three incidents with three different Chevrolet IndyCars forced the series to put a stop to teams removing or swapping aerodynamic pieces to get a good, low-drag package for qualifying. They mandated that teams qualify in full-race trim and lowered the boost cars can run to slow down the cars in qualifying. »
I’m not sure what’s actually worse for you: the traditional ice-cream-based parfait covered in whipped cream and sprinkles, or this delicious looking mac and cheese creation from Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Grace Autosport hopes to break new ground for the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 next year: they’re the first all-female team. Not only is Katherine Legge driving the car itself, but the entire team behind her will be female as well. No one team in professional motorsport has ever done anything like this before.
Simona de Silvestro’s cars have an unfortunate history of catching fire at the Indianapolis 500, it seems. Today’s practice session fire was her third fire in five visits to the famous race. Fortunately, she was able to hop out of the car before flames caught up to her seat inside.
If you thought Honda’s usual aero kit for IndyCar this year was too complicated, busy and silly, perhaps you’ll like the more classic look of their superspeedway version.

If you've been following along in our worldwide game of "Where's Simona?," one of the most talented women in racing has been sadly semi-seatless for a while. Her deal to be a test driver for Sauber fell through when the funding package went kaput. She got a seat for the IndyCar St. Petersburg Grand Prix, but it was a… »

Okay, so the incredibly exciting finish of the Indy 500 was helped a bit by the fact that there was a red flag with less than ten laps to go, but I don't think that made it any less crazy. Do you really think you could hold onto the lead with Helio Castroneves breathing down your neck like this? »
After a relatively incident-free running of the 98th Indianapolis 500, Ryan Hunter-Reay is your 2014 race winner. Congrats Ryan! »
This year's lucky winner of the Indianapolis 500 will follow in the grand tradition of drenching both their insides, and their outsides, with copious amounts of milk. Most drivers won't accept just any cow juice, however. They can get pretty damn picky. »
There's been a bit of consternation recently about how to make the Indy 500 popular again. Not that it doesn't have any friends, but it's not the absurdly massive spectacle that it used to be. One of the reasons is that much of the innovation is gone. And a lot of that is thanks to the monster hidden in this race car. »
Edith Pittenger is 102 years old. Yesterday, she took a ride around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Mario Andretti at the wheel of the IndyCar two seater. This is her second time behind the wheel. She was younger the first time: 96. »

Rumours have turned into more or less believable financial figures recently how F1 could take Long Beach back. These mills include some investors you might have thought of or you had wished you have.
