IndyCar does the unimaginable....again
  by Brian Carroccio
Around 12:50 p.m. ET Wednesday, in the midst of one of those proverbial run around like a chicken-with-your--head-cut-off type of days, I received a message from a friend, someone very clued in to the latest happenings in the world of racing.

Brian's Friend: "IndyCar announcement at 3 (p.m.) today. Any idea what it's about?"

The sport evolves, technology evolves and the competition never sleeps so Viry needs to evolve at the same rate,' Managing Director Cyril Abiteboul explains. 'Viry needed a refresh.

  by Stephen Cox
After a Mexican 302-equipped Ford Torino crossed the block at Mecum Auctions recently, I've received a boatload of questions about these unique engines, their collector value, and how to identify them. Mexican 302's are a bit of an oddity, so I thought I'd pass along the answers publicly for Ford enthusiasts.
