Open-wheelers are really having trouble starting a race today, it seems. Tony Kanaan and Mikhail Aleshin made contact on the first lap of today’s IndyCar season finale at Sonoma Raceway, spinning Aleshin the wrong way around in one of Sonoma’s tight hairpin turns.
IndyCar’s Will Power got sent to the back of the field for an unsafe release into the path of Tony Kanaan during today’s Indianapolis 500. From the onboard video, it just kind of looks like the driving of a sleepy grandma puttering outside her lane as sleepy grandmas do.
No, no. Not because Wet ‘N’ Wild makes nail polish on the cheap and Swift’s a fancy lady. Look at the track conditions at Belle Isle. Clearly, an opportunity to co-brand (read = “get more dinero”) this car was lost. Not only did Tony Kanaan wipe out in his Taylor Swiftmobile, but three other cars wiped out with him.
Aussie IndyCar driver and Jersey saluting meme Will Power just won his first IndyCar Championship and celebrated by doing this. It is perfect.
Tony Kanaan has had near Andretti-levels of terrible luck at the Indy 500. Seriously. But after years of trying, the fan favorite finally won the big race last year. He's going for a second win on Sunday, but right now he's here to answer your questions.
Sunday's Indy 500 was one for the record books in nearly every quantifiable way. It also had a popular winner in Brazilian Tony Kanaan. But one Atlanta TV station says IndyCar will never top NASCAR because "Americans prefer American racers." Oh, and they say the finish was a farce.
Fastest race ever. Most lead changes ever. Barely any crashes. The most popular winner possible. Holy shit.
Darn them Brazilians, always crashing into things with their reckless driving! And those pesky Japanese, what with their radioactive food. Don't blame Danica Patrick for fearing the world, blame the world for being so scary.
Helio Castroneves was braking hard into a turn during practice for this weekend's debut of the Baltimore Grand Prix when, out of nowhere, Tony Kanaan went flying over Helio's car and into he wall. Kanaan would later blame a stuck throttle, but after shotgunning five seasons of The Wire in one week we're suspicious.
Last weekend saw the second iteration of the reborn Belle Isle Grand Prix and we were right there, enjoying the spectacle played out in weather so perfect Roger Penske couldn't have paid for better. Aside from a couple spin outs, Sunday's Indy Racing League run was largely unremarkable until lap 72, when things got…
She's everywhere these days - Danica Patrick is the Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova of open wheel racing and everyone wants a piece of the moment. Well, maybe except teammate Tony Kanaan and his wife. A quick item at Automobile relays a phone call from Kanaan's pregnant wife after he qualified third and behind…
Tony Kanaan wins the IndyCar race here at the Detroit Grand Prix, and Danica Patrick took second place in her best ever finish after a shocking last lap and a half. Just before the white flag came up a number of drivers were involved in some "contact" that included "the wall" and "other drivers." Oh and Dan Wheldon…
