Alabama GP Postscript
by Brian Carroccio Well, it's Simon Pagenaud's world right now. A week after scoring a somewhat controversial victory at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, the Frenchman left little doubt in Sunday's Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. Starting from pole the driver of the No. 22 PPG Automotive Refinish Team Penske Chevrolet led all but 6 laps, survived a late challenge from Graham Rahal and ultimately scored a 13.747 second victory. It was Pagenaud's sixth career win, and his fourth top-2 finish in four 2016 races.
My Mazda Road to Indy As the only owner operating teams on all three levels of the Mazda Road to Indy, Dale Pelfrey has earned a reputation for spotting talent. In a combined 13 races so far this season, Team Pelfrey’s stable of four drivers in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship Powered by Mazda, three drivers in the Pro Mazda Championship Presented by Cooper Tires and two drivers in the Indy Lights Championship Presented by Cooper Tires have earned four victories and a total of 13 podiums – and that’s not even counting his F1600 Championship Series squad.
Before an announced weekend crowd of 83,000, Simon Pagenaud emerged from a late race scrap with Graham to score his second consecutive Verizon IndyCar Series victory in today's Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. The Frenchman dominated the majority of the race from pole position before a hard charging Rahal closed the gap during the final stint. With 9 laps remaining Rahal made an inside move heading into turn 8 when the American's left front made contact with Pagenaud's right rear.

by Brian Carroccio On the one hand it was your typical fare. The glorious cacophony of California sunshine tempered by the soothing Pacific breeze glistening off palm trees and art deco buildings once again provided an idyllic backdrop for exotic machines powering down Shoreline Drive. And as they have for more than four decades, the crowds packed the house for the latest installment of North America's longest running and most iconic urban festival of speed. Yes, from all indications the 42nd annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (the event) was absolutely everything it's always been and everything you'd expect it to be. As for the 42nd annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach (the race) well, let's talk about that.
by Mark J. Cipolloni As you know, we here at AR1.com have called for the removal wings from IndyCars for quite some time. They have ruined the racing.
