Hamilton wins pole for Italian GP
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
Using a Mercedes engine with all the latest updates Mercedes could muster, Lewis Hamilton easily won the pole for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza with a lap of 1m23.397s. It was the 7th straight pole position for Hamilton who had the latest Mercedes engine that was not given to his teammate Nico Rosberg. After a semi-wet morning session, the weather was perfect for qualifying.  The Ferrari of Kimi Raikkonen will start 2nd.

IndyCar Sonoma postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
Of all the possible scenarios I envisioned prior to Sunday's GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma, Chip Ganassi crowd-surfing was not amongst them. And while Ganassi doing his Eddie Vedder imitation would have been implausible under most any scenario, part of my disbelief was of course, the fact his driver Scott Dixon emerged from Sunday's race as the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series champion.

'X1 Series' to 'Make IndyCar Great Again'
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
About a month ago we rumored that a group was going to make a proposal to buy the IndyCar Series from the Hulman-George family. That rumor of course was met with immediate denials from IndyCar because the group we had been talking to had not yet met with anyone from IndyCar or the Hulman-George family.  I sat on this story until the time was right. The time is now right for this AutoRacing1.com exclusive.

Power takes pole for IndyCar season finale in Sonoma
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
While other drivers trashed around the undulating Sonoma Raceway road course on the soft red Firestone tires, Will Power shocked the paddock by going out on the harder and slower black tires and put his Penske Chevy on pole for the IndyCar Season finale. Power reset his year-old track record on the blacks. He is that good. Americans Josef Newgarden will start 2nd ahead of Ryan Hunter-Reay.  Simon Pagenaud and points leader Juan Montoya round out the top-5.
