IndyCar: Early Season Report
by Lucille Dust
Coming into the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season everyone was anxious to see how the new Chevrolet and Honda aero kits would do perform. Fans, media and even drivers were unsure of what exactly we would see in the opening Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Heck, when I asked James Hinchcliffe how his car would react when passing another car, the friendly Canadian "I will find out when I make the first pass."
Logano wins Richmond pole
Piloting his No. 22 Team Penske Ford
After piloting his No. 22 Team Penske Ford at 127.071 mph around Richmond International Raceway, Joey Logano won his third Sprint Cup Coors Light Pole Award of the season. Logano is the defending winner of last year's spring race at the Virginia track, while teammate Brad Keselowski (who qualified seventh tonight) completed the Team Penske sweep last season with his fall win at the track. Denny Hamlin continued to show speed, as his No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota whirled around the short track at 126.796 mph, which qualified him second.

The Fundamental Problem with IndyCar and F1 today
by Mark J. Cipolloni
I'm sorry, I may be old school; however I have been around long enough to recognize what works in motorsports and what does not. When it comes to the world's foremost open wheel racing series - IndyCar and Formula One - both have witnessed steady measurable declines in recent seasons. And it's time for a major shake-up. In particular F1 and IndyCar need a major revamp of the technical regulations in time for the 2017 season.

An Interview With Ryan Hunter-Reay
Ryan Hunter-Reay of Andretti Autosport was the 2014 Indianapolis 500 winner, and is one of only three drivers to win at Barber Motorsports Park, site of this weekend's Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. Ryan looks to become the first driver to win three consecutive races at Barber, and he would be the first driver to do that feat since Will Power won three straight races at Sao Paulo from 2010 through 2012.
IndyCar Long Beach postscript
by Brian Carroccio
By now you probably know what happened in Sunday’s 41st
running of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. However, to briefly repeat, pole sitter Helio Castroneves jumped to the lead after a rather ragged start (more on that later) with third-place starter Dixon getting ahead of second-place starter Juan Pablo Montoya into turn one. Scott Dixon scored his 36th
career win at the relatively young age of 34. Dixon surpassed the win total of Bobby Unser with his 36th
career Indy car race to move into fifth place on the all-time list. Now, I ran out of superlatives to describe the accomplishments of Dixon long ago. However, I’ll briefly something I’ve elaborated on in further detail in the past.

Our Gary Parravani was there to capture all the action in these photos.
Racing Green: IMSA Championship At The Forefront
By Steven Cole Smith
It's hard to imagine that in 1969, when peace activist John McConnell suggested at a UNESCO conference in San Francisco that we should have a special day once a year to recognize the urgent need for environmental awareness, that he had sports car racing in mind. Yet on Earth Day 2015, it is worth noting that the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is proceeding with the plan initiated by the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron years ago to explore ways to go fast, but still go green.

by Pete McCole
Polesitter Matt Kenseth weathered the storm to win Sunday’s night’s wild Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway, snapping a 51-race winless drought for his first victory of the season. Kenseth took over the lead with 22 laps to go and held off a resurging Jimmie Johnson on a final green-white-checkered shootout to take the checkered flag more than nine hours after the race started.
