An Interview with Ed Carpenter, Mike Conway and Sebastien Bourdais
  INDY
We're pleased to be joined by the two drivers who share the No. 20 Fuzzy's Vodka car for Ed Carpenter Racing.  Later we'll be joined by Sebastien Bourdais. First we'll start with Ed Carpenter and Mike Conway. Welcome to the call.  Mike, you're the most recent winner in the series at Toronto.  Your second win of the season.  I know you had a chance to test last week at Mid-Ohio.  What do you expect from the No. 20 team for the weekend?
Has anyone noticed?
  by Steven N. Levinson
This story is from our 2002 archives and discusses the loss of short track dirt racing and fanbase from oval track IndyCar racing after Tony George split the sport, which led to its destruction. Indianapolis, Indiana is the home of the Indy 500, the United States Auto Club and is a hot bed of open wheel short track racing week in and week out from April through September. It is also the home of all of many die hard IRL fans. So what has happened to all of the "premier" short track events?
NASCAR drops a penalty bomb on Joe Gibbs Racing
  by Dave Grayson
In recent years there has been a general theory in NASCAR Sprint Cup racing that said any time, during the course of a post race inspection, that NASCAR tech officials deemed it necessary to confiscate parts from a race car for further evaluation it meant big trouble for the race team. Big trouble for Joe Gibbs Racing, (JGR), came late on the afternoon of July 29th when NASCAR announced penalties against JGR's #11 team, driven by Denny Hamlin.
L&M Porsche: Untold Story of Can Am's Famous Car
  by Stephen Cox - Part 5 of 7, The Turning Point
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.
Indy post-race not kind to Joe Gibbs Racing
  by Dave Grayson
When it comes to earning the right to park a stock car in victory lane, at the conclusion of a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series event, you can bet that winning at the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway is high on the list of race drivers and their team owners. If they don't win the race, then team owners are at least looking for a strong finish because the Brickyard 400 is a very lucrative event that passes out the big bucks at the pay window.
