96th Indianapolis 500 Preview

Well, the time is finally here: the biggest sporting event in the world!  And the best as far as I’m concerned.  Sunday is the 96th running of the Indianapolis 500. It is a day that is much more than a race.  It is the crowd.  It is the colors.  It is the sounds.  It is…

Pole Day Will Be Memorable

Indy 500 Pole Day is easily one of the most dramatic days in sports each year.  Last year proved why it is one of the best days on the sporting calendar.  In 2011, Sam Schmidt Motorsports’ Alex Tagliani grabbed the top spot from the favorites as he was literally the final qualifier for the day…

And They’re Off In The Kentucky Derby…

The 138th running of the Kentucky Derby is hours away.  It’s an opportunity for many of us in the Midwest and all across the country to join together for one of the truest forms of “Americana” every year.

Daytona 500 Preview

The best way to describe Speedweeks so far this year: unpredictable. Every race seems to have had a surprise winner, close-quarters racing and lots of carnage. There are things though that can be predicted in the race Sunday. The racing will be much better from a “fan” standpoint. The pack racing is a lot more…

INDYCAR Announces Possible Changes

The IZOD IndyCar Series has a lot to look forward to in 2012.  After last season tragically ended in October with the passing of Dan Wheldon, league officials are looking ahead toward the future.  And they are focused on gaining a new audience and improving the racing as soon as possible. 1.    There will be…
