Keselowski holds off Johnson to win Coca-Cola 600
  by Pete McCole
Chase Elliott had the Coke 600 won easily Sunday night but his Hendrick Chevy teammate William Byron brought out the caution with less than 3 laps to go. The #9 Chevy team made the call to pit for 4 tires for the shootout while Team Penske made the call for Brad Keselowski to stay out on worn tires for the 2-lap shootout and that was the right call as he was able to hold off Jimmie Johnson, who also did not stop for tires, by just 0.293s. Elliott fought his way back up to third on his new tires while Ryan Blaney and Kyle Busch rounded out the top-5.
Superstar Fernando Alonso dominates virtual Indy 500
  Wins both heats
Two-time Formula 1 World Champion and esports newcomer Fernando Alonso dominated Torque Esports/Engine Media's (TSX-V: GAME) (OTCQB: MLLLF) The Race All-Star Series powered by ROKiT Phones Legends Trophy races today on the virtual version of the historic Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Featuring an entry list with a total of 13 Indy 500 wins to their credit, Alonso not only triumphed in the opening race after chasing down pole winner Petter Solberg (former World Rally Champion), he had to hold off a hard-charging fellow ex-Formula 1 World Champion, Jenson Button.
Corvette Racing Chassis History: 1999-2004
  Looking back at Corvette C5-R GT1 era
Corvette Racing’s legacy in sports car racing dates back more than 20 years. The program’s decade of competition includes 107 race wins worldwide and multiple IMSA Manufacturer, Driver and Team championships since 1999. These accomplishments came in some of the most memorable and revered cars in all of road racing.  Today we offer this look back at the Corvette C5-R, Chevrolet’s first entry into modern factory racing. As the C5 did against its production-based competitors, the C5-R quickly established itself as a world-beater against some of the biggest names in endurance racing. 
Chase Briscoe Scores Bittersweet Darlington Victory
  by Brandon Reed
With the beating and the banging in the final 10 laps that probably had the fans at home on their feet, an emotional Chase Briscoe battled Kyle Busch to the line to capture the win in the Toyota 200 at Darlington Raceway in the NASCAR Xfinity Series’ first race back since the COVID-19 pandemic brought sports to a halt. The win was made all the more poignant for Briscoe by the personal emotions of the week, as he and his wife, Marissa, had shared on Wednesday they had learned the day before they lost the baby they were expecting to welcome late in the year.
Hamlin strategy wins rain-shortened Darlington 500K
  Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway
Denny Hamlin grabbed the lead of the Toyota 500 at Darlington Raceway Wednesday night just before the rains came and was declared the winner under the red flag ahead of his Joe Gibbs Toyota teammate Kyle Busch. Busch was involved in a late controversial move on Hendrick Chevy driver Chase Elliott that saw Elliott hit the wall and exit the race.  It was Hamlin's 2nd win of 2020. Sunday's Darlington winner Kevin Harvick was third while Brad Keselowski and Erik Jones rounded out the top 5.

Would Ferrari really come to IndyCar?
  What does IndyCar provide a global brand like Ferrari?
Like many IndyCar fans I am salivating at the prospect that Ferrari is eyeing IndyCar. It certainly would raise IndyCar's profile globally and possibly bring IndyCar that third engine supplier they have coveted. However, Ferrari is a global brand. It races in F1 because F1 is a global race series.  It races in sports cars because they race globally. But IndyCar is strictly a domestic brand that makes periodic feeble attempts to race globally and fails every time. Ferrari has admitted to looking at IndyCar for 2022? But why? We examine the topic in some detail.
World tour of the "Iron Maiden" ends at home
  A background story about Porsche works driver Simona de Silvestro
The Indianapolis racing oval; 19 May, 2011: After some rainy days, the track finally begins to dry and 40 drivers get ready to tackle the 95th running of the Indy 500. This prestigious race is one of the world’s greatest motor racing challenges on a par with the Monaco Grand Prix and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It’s 12.25 pm, just past noon. Simona de Silvestro heads into the sixth lap in her green and white Dallara. Suddenly, the suspension breaks, the car crashes into the wall, catapults head over tail into the infield and bursts into flames.
Sauber at 50: a Swiss success story
  F1 team is 50 years strong
Sauber celebrates half a century of history today, as the company marks the 50th anniversary of its founding on the 15th of May, 1970. Since that day, when Peter Sauber started the eponymous brand, the name has become a familiar one in motor racing, moving from hillclimbs to circuit racing before achieving success at the highest levels of sportscar racing and making the move to Formula One at the beginning of the 1993 season. In this time, the team helped launch the careers of many fast drivers, including past (and likely future) World Champions; and it extended into a business comprising thriving Engineering and Aerodynamics arms.
Alfa Romeo was 1st Constructor To Win The F1 Title
  In 1950
May 13 marks the anniversary of the very first Formula 1 Grand Prix race ever, launching one of the great sporting myths of our time. The launch of this event, in 1950 at Silverstone, was celebrated by the International Federation in Shanghai on 14 July 2019 to mark the 1,000th race and now, on 13 May 2020, on the occasion of Formula 1’s 70th birthday. Two very different eras face to face. In 1950 crash helmets were still optional, there was no television, and the spectators were entirely distributed on foot alongside the racing track. Today the Formula 1 “circus” is a global industry, transmitted to reach 400 million TV and web viewers every season.
