Pagenaud out-duels Rossi to win 103rd Indy 500

INDIANAPOLIS -- All the talk about Simon Pagenaud entering the Month of May was his slow start to the season and that he'd be out of his ride at Team Penske if things didn't turn around. After sweeping the Month of May, he's now the points leader.

Rossi comes up short in Indy 500 bid

IMS President Boles explains why Brickyard 400 returns to July in 2020

INDIANAPOLIS -- May is the month of the year around which the NTT IndyCar Series revolves. It begins with the IndyCar Grand Prix on the grand prix circuit of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Then on Memorial Day Sunday, the cannon fires at 6:00 a.m. (which indicates the gates are open) and over 200,000 people pour into the facility to drink the day away, take in a concert in the Snake Pit and watch the annual running of the Indianapolis 500.

The Final Word – Kyle Busch had the whole wide World 600 in his hands

At Indianapolis, Toowoomba’s own Will Power kissed the bricks and drank the milk. Unfortunately, the last Aussie to drive a Cup car was Tasmanian Marcus Ambrose four years ago.

Power wins the Indy 500

INDIANAPOLIS -- Two weeks ago in the Indy Grand Prix, Will Power was relieved to break his run of lackluster finishes to win for the third time at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. All week leading up to the 102nd Indianapolis 500, he was calm, collected and stoic, going into a race he'd failed to win for so many years. In victory lane, tears poured out of the "ultimate road driver" who once said he hated ovals and he was overcome with elation, because he'd finally won the ultimate road race in open-wheel racing, Indianapolis 500.

Jeff Gordon. Four-time NASCAR champion. Three-time Daytona 500 champion. Four-time Brickyard 400 winner. Six-time Southern 500 victor. Three-time World 600 champion. Three-time All-Star race winner.

The Final Word – The Stars were out at Charlotte, including one Super Nova

It was a nice prelude to the All-Star Race in Charlotte on Saturday. First, we had a down and out established team show some life by taking the front row. The pole went to a former champion just a week after he ran his first race of the season.

The Final Word – Homestead sees the end of the Junior era, as another Junior wins it all

It was an amazing two weeks. In that time, Kevin Harvick locked his way into the final four, along with Kyle Busch and Martin Truex Jr. We got to see Matt Kenseth win, spoil things for Chase Elliott, and allowed Brad Keselowski to round out our championship contenders.

This Will Bring Fans Back to the Races

The past few years have brought every gimmick imaginable to auto racing. NASCAR holds races that three people can win. The ever-changing playoff system (a gimmick in itself) functions like an automotive version of musical chairs.
