Predicting who will win the 100th Indy 500
by Brian Carroccio
We all know this coming weekend is an important one for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Verizon IndyCar Series. The week got off to a good start with a heartwarming run to pole position by James Hinchcliffe Sunday. And you know the story. The beloved Mayor of Hinchtown of course nearly died last year in practice for the Indianapolis 500, when his legs were shish-kebabed together by a metal rod after a vicious accident. However, Hinchcliffe will lead the field of 33 to the green flag this coming Sunday.

We drive the Dodge Challenger Scat Pack
by Ali Arsham
The Dodge Challenger has always been the forgotten muscle car. While the Camaro and Mustang get all the glory, the Challenger has been there sitting quietly in the corner. It is too bad because as we found out, it is a hell of a car and it is not that quiet either.

Hinchcliffe wins pole for 100th Indy 500
by Tim Wohlford
"The worst four laps of the month" is one of the more charitable things said about qualifying at Indy. A few years ago, Dario quipped that he "talked to Jesus", to which Helio replied that he thought he saw Jesus during his run. By all accounts, it's the toughest thing you can do in auto sports. And this year, everyone had to do this at least twice. When the dust settled, the crowd was treated to a thrilling shootout for the top 9 places, with James Hinchcliffe narrowly beating Josef Newgarden for the Pole. Joining them on the top row will be Ryan Hunter-Reay.
New All Star Race Format Leads To Confusion
by Pete McCole
If there was a theme to Saturday night's All Star Race, it was "I don't know what's going on", as confusion and questions regarding the new format left drivers and fans alike wondering exactly what happened to turn the race from what was a simple three-segment race into a bona fide mess.
Lorenzo wins last-lap photo-finish over Marquez
For the first time since 2008, Valentino Rossi (Movistar Yamaha MotoGP) lined up for the Gran Premio d'Italia TIM in pole. The last time he started from pole in Mugello he won, having not returned to the top step of the podium since 2008. Over 100,000 people lined the hillside stands of Mugello to see if ‘The Doctor' could win once more. But it wasn't going to be easy with Maverick Vinales (Team Suzuki Ecstar) and Andrea Iannone (Ducati Team) right alongside him on the front row.
Joey Logano Wins Wild NASCAR Sprint All Star Race
by Pete McCole
Full Moon Fever was in full effect in Saturday night's 32nd running of the NASCAR Sprint All Star Race, as Joey Logano came out on top in a race that was both thrilling and confusion and left a lot of people scratching their heads. Logano got past Kyle Larson with two laps to go to score his first-career All Star Race victory, bringing home a $1million-dollar payday and denying Larson the chance to become the fourth driver to win the all-star event after racing their way into the field.
