The Indianapolis 500 Presented by Gainbridge has been rescheduled for Sunday, Aug. 23 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, officials from INDYCAR and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (IMS) announced today.

Fabio Quartararo: "I'm Fast On The Playstation"
  "But I'm Faster In Reality!"
The PETRONAS Yamaha Sepang Racing Team rider tells us how he’s keeping busy and adjusting to life at home awaiting the return of MotoGP action.  He's home in Andorra where he is not totally in quarantine but he tries to go out as little as possible so as not to get hit by the Coronavirus. Like all the riders he does know when they’ll start the season but of course they all need to be fit and 100% prepared whenever the first race is, so they're training hard and, of course, looking forward to starting the season.
Hamlin beats Earnhardt Jr. in Homestead iRacing event
  A peek into the future when cars drive themselves
In what was a peek into the future of auto racing when cars drive themselves and drivers are no longer needed to put on real races at a race track, Denny Hamlin passed Dale Earnhardt Jr. on the final lap to win Sunday’s NASCAR Pro Invitational iRacing Series exhibition race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Earnhardt was second in the 100-lap race. Timmy Hill was third. Chase Briscoe placed fourth. Garrett Smithley was fifth.
A LOOK BACK 1 YEAR: NASCAR at Martinsville
  Amy Henderson - Keselowski dominates to win Martinsville
Team Penske put an exclamation point on the organization’s hot start to 2019 as Brad Keselowski conquered NASCAR’s shortest track Sunday to win the STP 500 at Martinsville Speedway in a purely dominant performance, becoming the first driver to win more than one race in 2019. Keselowski led 446 out of 500 laps and swept the stage wins on Sunday in a race that saw long green-flag runs and plenty of on-track action.
  Herta Becomes youngest IndyCar winner ever
Clear skies hung over Circuit of the Americas for today's inaugural INDYCAR Classic. The race ran drama-free until a single caution was brought out on Lap 44. Benefiting most drivers and challenging three, the caution allowed Colton Herta, Josef Newgarden and Ryan Hunter-Reay - who had just pitted on Lap 43 to gain track position while it pushed race leaders Will Power and Alexander Rossi out of contention to win the 60-lap race.
We drive the 2020 Nissan Rogue
  by Ali Arsham
The Nissan Rogue is Nissan’s best-selling vehicle. It makes sense because it is one vehicle that does everything well.  It is roomy but not too big and luxurious without being flashy. It is also affordable and economical and Nissan has now added a host of electronic safety measures.
Mecum to put Miles' Shelby GT350 R-Model on block

Q&A with IndyCar's Mark Miles
  After cancellation of first 4 races
Basically, we wanted to be available to you to take your questions. Obviously, this is an incredibly fluid situation. The entire world is dealing with it. It changes by the hour. The President of the United States is going to make another statement later today. We certainly don't know what's coming. It just underscores I think the gravity of the situation. We are so excited about this season. We remain that. We're going to race as much as we can race. It was clear to us from overnight and this morning that the right thing to do right now was to suspend our competition, really all on-track activity through April. Mark Miles
3 reasons why Alonso will run IndyCar full-time
  by Andrew Maitland (and 3 reasons why he won't)
Before I even knew what team he would be driving for, I declared recently that Fernando Alonso will win this year's Indy 500 and therefore complete the so-called Triple Crown. That was before Honda reportedly vetoed the deal he had reached with Michael Andretti's top operation, meaning the former Formula 1 world champion had to resort to Plan B - McLaren's new operation. Having severed his ambassadorial ties with his former F1 employer, it clearly wasn't really what the Spaniard had in mind.
St. Pete GP: 5 Things To Look For
  Heading into the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg
The 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season opens this weekend with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Team Penske's Josef Newgarden won last year's race on the 14-turn, 1.8-mile temporary street circuit, but he will have a host of strong competition for this year's honors among the 26-car field. This marks the 10th consecutive year that the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg will serve as the NTT INDYCAR SERIES season opener, dating to 2011 in a race won by Dario Franchitti.
IndyCar St. Petersburg GP Preview
  Opening IndyCar race of 2020
The 16th Annual Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg will return as the opening race for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES for the 10th consecutive year. It will also feature six support racing series on track with four of the six opening their 2020 seasons in St. Petersburg. Utilizing a combination of raw speed, creative tire strategy and sharp pit work, Josef Newgarden drove the No. 2 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet to victory lane in the 2019 Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg and teammate Will Power won the pole. Will Team Penske dominate again?
