The Tao of Racing

IndyCar Toronto postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
I made mention of this in last week’s Iowa Postscript. However, about midway through the Iowa Corn Indy 300 Presented by DEKALB, I spotted KV Racing Technology co-owner Jimmy Vasser making his way back to the garage area. This, of course, was after both KV cars had fallen retired in quick succession. Of particular disappointment for Vasser and KV was Colombian Sebastian Saavedra had crashed out from third-place after impressively carving his way from the back of the field.
Scenes from the New York Global Rallycross event

Tanner Foust snapped a 12-race winless streak in Red Bull Global Rallycross competition with a thrilling victory in Volkswagen Rallycross NY, held on Sunday at Nassau Coliseum in New York. Foust, driving for Volkswagen Andretti Rallycross, beat SH Racing Rallycross driver Nelson Piquet Jr. and Hoonigan Racing Division’s Ken Block to the line in a mad dash to the finish. Douglas Kniffin captured all the action with these photo.
Q and A with Tony Stewart
  Talks about Dirt Track and NASCAR Racing
"I never was a driver brought up running one type of car and one type of surface.  I always ran dirt and pavement.  I like that.  I like the challenge.  I like the dirt tracks because they change all the time.  Pavement tracks, when I got in the Cup series, the pavement racing I had done before that, tracks really didn't change a lot.  In the Cup series, the groove moves around and it gets wider and you might run the bottom for a little while and the top, and that's a lot like dirt racing too.  I like that challenge of trying to figure out as a driver what to do to make yourself better." Tony Stewart
James Garner delivered the 'definitive' Racing Movie
  by Dave Grayson
It was truly sad to learn of the July 19th passing of actor James Garner. According to reports, Garner passed away due to natural causes in his Brentwood-California home at the age of 86. He leaves us with a legacy of television and film work that spanned a career lasting nearly six decades. The television stand outs on his resume includes "Maverick" from the 1950's and "The Rockford Files" which ran for six seasons in the 1970's. He also portrayed major roles in over fifty feature films.
L&M Porsche: Untold Story of Can Am's Famous Car
  by Stephen Cox - Part 4 of 7, The Embarrassment
With what appeared to be a fully developed, dominant racecar, Porsche was ready for their public unveiling. They chose the third race of the season at Watkins Glen as their moment of truth. After all, everything seemed perfect. The teething problems with the L&M Porsche's turbocharger dump valve at Mosport surely wouldn't happen again. The loss of the magnesium car didn't seem to be as bad a setback as expected. The standard 917/10-003 was clearly superior to McLaren's new M20.

Conway wins in Toronto
  by Brian Carroccio
Mike Conway drove the #20 Fuzzy’s Vodka/Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet to victory in today’s Race 2 of the Honda Indy Toronto. Using a late race call by the Fuzzy’s Vodka team to take slick tires, Conway charged ahead of fellow competitors on rain tires to score the win. It was Conway’s fourth career win and 2nd of 2014. Tony Kanaan was second in the #10 Target Chip Ganassi Racing Chevrolet.
Bourdais wins from pole in Toronto
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
No. 11 was key. No. 11 Sebastien Bourdais had not won an IndyCar race since 11/11/2007 in Mexico City and today he was just as untouchable as he was back in Mexico City on the 11th of the 11th month. Bourdais had his way on Sunday morning leading 58 of 65 laps on his way to winning the first race of a doubleheader in the Honda Grand Prix of Toronto by 3.3408 seconds over Verizon IndyCar Series championship front-runner Helio Castroneves on the 1.755-mile Exhibition Place street circuit.
Nico Rosberg goes flag-to-flag in Germany
  by Mark J. Cipolloni
Mercedes driver Nico Rosberg won the German GP F1 race Sunday in an easy waltz as Mercedes powered cars finished 1-2-3.  Lewis Hamilton came back from a 20th starting spot and bullied his way to the front in the 2nd Mercedes, breaking wings and bodywork of everyone he came in contact with - his signature driving style, to finish third.  Valtteri Bottas was second for Williams holding off Hamilton to the flag.
