Catch the livestream action online (photo: Joseph Kumzak)
WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca has selected key races from the 2019 Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion (RMMR) into an hour-long program to be broadcast by NBC Sports Network (NBCSN) on Monday, August 26 at 3:00 pm PDT / 6:00 pm EDT. This year's RMMR featured International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) as the marque, in honor of their 50th anniversary. This was the first time a race series rather than an automotive manufacturer has been recognized in this way.
 
The race groups evolved slightly for 2019 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of IMSA. The atmosphere in the paddock was electric with an unprecedented variety of cars with past and present racing personalities from the span of IMSA’s rich history.

The German manufacturer has dominated the sport since the introduction of the new 'power unit' rules in 2014.

But boss Wolff says that Honda's performance surge this season indicates that all of the engine makers in Formula 1 are now closely matched.

NASCAR cited three teams in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series for lug-nut violations after last weekend’s action at Bristol Motor Speedway. Those teams were the No. 2 Team Penske Ford of Brad Keselowski, the No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet of Chase Elliott and the No. 14 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford of Clint Bowyer.

Each crew chief was fined $10,000 — Paul Wolfe (the No. 2), Alan Gustafson (for the No. 9) and Michael Bugarewicz (No. 14). Keselowski finished third in the Bristol Night Race, while Elliott was fifth and Bowyer was seventh.

Walmart sues Tesla
Tesla is a dumpster fire right now. Their cars and solar panels catch on fire and we know their autonomous cars crash all the time, some resulting in death.  They carry huge debt and they lose a lot of money each quarter.
Tesla is a dumpster fire right now. Their cars and solar panels catch on fire and we know their autonomous cars crash all the time, some resulting in death. They carry huge debt and they lose a lot of money each quarter, and their solar sales are plummeting.
Not only do their cars catch on fire, so do their solar panels.

Walmart Inc on Tuesday sued Tesla Inc, accusing it of "widespread negligence" that led to repeated fires of its solar systems and asking a court to force Tesla to remove solar panels from more than 240 of its U.S. stores.

The lawsuit accuses Tesla of having untrained workers putting up shoddy installations and showing "utter incompetence or callousness, or both," court papers said.

The fires destroyed significant amounts of store merchandise and required substantial repairs, totaling millions of dollars in losses, Walmart said in the lawsuit.

Why he was sent to the hospital was never revealed by IndyCar so we may never know what they were concerned about. We suspect a concussion or possible bone fracture.

Verstappen and Honda coming on strong
When asked by Autosportweb about the gap to Mercedes, Honda F1 executive director Masashi Yamamoto  replied: “I think it’s shrinking. At the time of the opening round, I didn’t feel that we could get closer to Mercedes. The developers of HRD Sakura (Honda Technical Research Institute) and engineers at the race site did a really good job.

“And in Hungary, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton and Max fought wheel-to-wheel at the front. What was very impressive was when Hamilton actually had to back off a move early in the race. That was amazing. If we had a similar scenario at the beginning of the opening race, Hamilton would not have backed off, but it would have been over in a few seconds. I think it was a fruitful first half of the season.”

Statement from Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing: Following the events on Lap 1 of Sunday’s INDYCAR race at Pocono Raceway, we are relieved that all drivers emerged unhurt from the crash. Normally in a situation of this nature it is not necessary for a team to comment but following the accusations levied at Takuma Sato, and after reviewing Takuma’s onboard data and camera, we feel that a clarification is necessary. 

The data and video clearly shows that Takuma did not turn down the track into Alexander in this incident and in fact the first steering wheel movement made by Takuma was to the right, as he tried to correct his car after the initial contact.

IndyCar aero kit partially to blame for another Pocono wreck

IndyCar has their head where the sun doesn't shine if it does not think it's aero kit results in drivers taking unnecessary risks

Has IndyCar screwed the pooch with its latest Superspeedway aero kit? It would seem so.

There is one aspect of these wrecks that is seemingly going undiscussed, yet aside of driver error, it is arguably the number one reason why these wrecks happened. That is the introduction of the Superspeedway aero kit that has made it so hard to pass drivers take unnecessary risks on starts and restarts.

The only superspeedway race prior to last year’s race at Pocono Raceway during which the aero kit was used was the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and passing was at a premium throughout this race.

Earlier this month, they released a test of a Porsche Taycan performing 30 consecutive 0-124 mph launches to show repeatable high power output.

After he cools down, Rossi will eventually come to see that Sato was not to blame

UPDATE Added Sato in-car video below.  He drove straight until clipped by Rossi. Many people owe Sato an apology.

08/19/19 These photos below show, using the seam in the asphalt as reference, that Alexander Rossi was moving right (with Ryan Hunter-Reay to his left), and Rossi's right front clipped Takuma Sato's right rear.

While Rossi perceived that Sato moved left on him, the evidence is overwhelming that he did not.

So while everyone was quick to lay blame with Takuma Sato, it's quite likely that Alexander Rossi will look back on Sunday as the crash that cost him another IndyCar title.

UPDATE Everyone originally blamed Takuma Sato for the big wreck at Pocono Sunday. In fact he did not turn left across Rossi. 

After examining the video frame-by-frame and watching the seams in the asphalt, it is clear Hunter-Reay passes to the left of Rossi, then fades right to setup for Turn 2 (better arc), Rossi also fades right, and he moves up into Sato setting off the accident. Sato did not turn left until he was touched by Rossi. Sato could be blamed for going 3-wide on lap 1 into Turn 2.

Don't believe us? Re-watch the video frame-by-frame, watch each car, and watch the straight seams in the asphalt.

Ford GT Mk II order book will close on August 31st
When the Ford GT Mk II was revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on July 4, a previously unrealized level of performance was unleashed.  As a track-only supercar the Mk II doesn’t have to conform to road or race series regulations so it delivers the true off-the-hook potential of the Ford GT platform.

Interest in the limited-edition car has been unprecedented so Multimatic will close the sales inquiries process on August 31.  After that date, those who have expressed an interest in purchasing one of the 45 Mk II’s will be contacted. 
 
“The demand for the Mk II was so high that we could have sold the entire production run on the day of the Goodwood reveal,” said Multimatic President & Chief Operating Officer, Raj Nair. “If you’re buying a car that costs over a million dollars you obviously want to know if you’re getting one! We understand that and so will close the order book on August 31, which will initiate the allocation process and we will contact everyone who applied.”

The first Ford GT Mk IIs will be delivered before the end of 2019.

IndyCar Drivers say Pocono track is plenty safe
Pocono start
Pocono start
After the IndyCar drivers wrecked in Turn 2 on the opening lap of the Pocono 500 social media lit up blaming the Pocono track, calling it unfit and unsafe for an IndyCar race.

Even Robert Wickens chimed in on social media but the fact of the matter is it was driver error in 2018 (Wickens fault) and driver error again in 2019 (Sato's fault) that there was a big wreck.  And Justin Wilson being killed was a freak accident and could have happened at any track. Look how close Scott Dixon was to being killed at Indy last year - inches.

 

However the IndyCar drivers after the race quickly shot down any notion that the track was to blame and quickly pointed out that all the Pocono accidents could have happened anywhere.

Q. Gentlemen, we saw some comments during the race from Robert Wickens, Sage Karam, whether INDYCAR should be running here at Pocono in the future. What are your thoughts after finishing the race today?  Do you see those changing as you get more time to think about it?

SCOTT DIXON:  Honestly I feel bad for Pocono. The group of people here that work, they work extremely hard. I felt the crowd today at the start of the race was fantastic. It was gaining some really good momentum. Hopefully it does continue. 

But down to weather, some mistakes that have happened on track, honestly they could happen anywhere, if you look at Justin or Robby, those can happen anywhere. I feel bad that it gets a bit of a bad taste in that scenario. I think the drivers in a lot of situations can do a better job to help that situation. 

Honestly, I hope we come back. I just want to say a big thank you to everybody here at Pocono, the fans and everybody that come out, because it's definitely a tough place. Will can tell you how rewarding it is to win here just because it is so difficult to get it right. 

WILL POWER:  I agree. It's a great oval for us. Obviously some unfortunate accidents here, like Scott said, that could happen anywhere. Kind of got a bad rap for that. 

The crowd is up 15% every year we come back. It's getting better. Like Scott said, the crowd was great today. It's a good racetrack, man. A good track for racing. I really hope we come back, I do. I think the guys do a great job. A cool track for us. It's hard for us to find good ovals these days that suit our cars. 

SIMON PAGENAUD:  Tough to add to that. I think they said it all. 

It is a fun track to drive on. Real unfortunate, close to New York, a great market for INDYCAR. It's an opportunity to bring people from New York to the Indy car races. Really enjoy that. 

I love personally superspeedways. I think it's been the best, like they said. Obviously when you're traveling at such high speed, you know a crash is going to be a big crash. 

Hopefully we can come back and hopefully we can keep working with people at Pocono because it's been a lot of fun. I've been racing here since 2012 in the series. I've enjoyed it more and more every year. So we'll see what happens next. 

As a driver, I really enjoy coming here.

Rossi talks to Andretti Autosport COO Rob Edwards while his crew works on his car.

UPDATE Rossi went back out 89 laps down. Once the race hits 111 laps he may as well park the car because even if any other cars fall out he will not gain any more spots or points.

08/18/19 Alexander Rossi's Andretti Autosport crew is trying to fix his wrecked car but they are likely wasting their time because he will be too many laps down.

IndyCar: Sunday morning update from Pocono
Dixon was 2nd  quick Saturday. Can he win on Sunday?
Dixon was 2nd quick Saturday. Can he win on Sunday?

Some good news from Pocono, the forecast is decidedly better for the race this afternoon and we expect to get this race in today.  It will be warm, in the low-80s- and mostly sunny with only a slight chance of a thunderstorm.

The fans here are bored stiff as there is no racing and few activities until race time at 2:45 pm. No wonder IndyCar oval races are dying - they are so boring for the fans compared to road and street circuits where the action is constant. Not sure why IndyCar bothers to have any ovals races on the schedule.  They are not promoted right, and except for the Indy 500, they eventually all die a slow death.

Perez to retire from F1 in 2021
Sergio Perez
If Sergio Perez is true to his word, he'll leave F1 in 2021
Sergio Perez has said he'll leave in 2021 if he's not fighting for podiums. He won't be fighting for podiums with Racing Point so, therefore, he will leave F1.

Sergio Perez has said that he’ll leave Formula 1 if he’s not fighting for podiums after the 2021 regulations are introduced.

The Racing Point driver has often been the midfield driver to steal an opportunistic top-three finish, doing so eight times, but opportunities are becoming lesser and lesser as the gap to the top three teams increases.

Collapsed landing gear caused the plane carrying Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his family to this weekend’s NASCAR weekend in Bristol to crash off the runway before bursting into flames, the NTSB has revealed.

Senior investigator Ralph Hicks said: “We were able to obtain surveillance footage from buildings around the area that include footage of the accident happening. It shows quite a bit.

“The airplane basically bounced at least twice before coming down hard on the right-wing landing gear. You can actually see the right-wing landing gear collapsing on the video.

The leading candidates for this year's NTT IndyCar Series championship will be easy to spot at the start of Sunday's ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway. They all will be at the front.

With heavy rain falling mid-morning Saturday, INDYCAR officials opted to cancel NTT P1 Award qualifying in favor of a two-hour practice that would be more relevant to race conditions. When qualifying sessions aren't held, starting grids are set by entrant points and that provided Team Penske's Josef Newgarden and his No. 2 Hitachi Chevrolet the lead position heading into the 200-lap, 500-mile race. Andretti Autosport's Alexander Rossi will occupy the other position on the front row in the No. 27 MilitaryToMotorsports.com Honda.

Good morning from the mountains of Pocono, Pennsylvania where the IndyCar teams and drivers are gathered for the ABC Supply 500. We hit a few rain drops on the way to the track this morning but we think today will be largely dry.  We're more worried about tomorrow's weather forecast which is iffy at this point.

This morning's 1.5-hour practice session starting at 9:30am will be all about setting up the car for qualifying at 12:30pm ET.  That is followed by practice this afternoon at 4:00pm when the drivers will focus on race day setup.

NASCAR investigating foul language radio transmissions

Did Matt Crafton really call Stewart Friesen a queer?
A NASCAR official confirmed to Jalopnik Friday that it’s looking into claims of homophobic comments communicated over a team radio during the Truck Series race at Bristol Motor Speedway on Thursday night, in response to on-track disputes between playoff drivers Matt Crafton and Stewart Friesen.

Autoweek reporter Matt Weaver posted the alleged comments on Twitter during the race, later deleting the post because, he said in a tweet, the “sentiment just felt too gross to keep up.”

Live team transmissions are available for fans and media to listen to during races, and reporters often tweet things said on the radios.

To repeat at Pocono, Rossi must first dodge the rain drops

Rossi takes the checkered flag in 2018.
By starting the Pocono 500 so late in the afternoon (2:45pm instead of 1:00 pm) there is a decent chance Sunday's Pocono 500 will rain out.

There is a 60 to 70% of Thunderstorms in the afternoon and the best chance of rain is at race time.  Since Pocono has no lights, any stoppage to dry the track could mean that darkness sets in and the race gets postponed to Monday. We'll see how the forecast evolves Sunday morning.

To have a shot at winning the NTT IndyCar Series championship, Alexander Rossi feels he needs to win at least one of the four remaining races.

IndyCar heads to Pocono Raceway this weekend with its future at the track unclear. The current three-year deal expires after Sunday’s race, and the venue is seen in the paddock as unlikely to be on the ’20 schedule.

This comes with IndyCar in advanced talks with Richmond Raceway to race there next season.

Both IndyCar and Pocono have insisted that a final decision has not been made yet, and Pocono has offered to host a race once every three years if IndyCar does not want to return in ’20.

Earnhardt recovering from bumps and bruises
NBC Sports will not replace Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the booth for Saturday night's Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race after the former driver was involved in a plane crash Thursday in east Tennessee. Instead, NBCSN will stick with a three-man booth consisting of Rick Allen, Jeff Burton and Steve Letarte for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race from Bristol Motor Speedway. 

That trio called races for three years from '15-17 before NBC expanded to a four-man booth in '18 with Earnhardt's addition. Earnhardt has also been slated to race in his only race of the year during the Aug. 31 Xfinity Series race at Darlington; there was no immediate word if he is still set to participate. The Cup Series does not race again until Sept. 1 at Darlington.

Firestone bringing revised tires to Pocono 500
2019 Indy 500 construction with 2018 Pocono compound
2019 Indy 500 construction with 2018 Pocono compound
"The layout at Pocono Raceway has three distinct turns with completely different radii and levels of banking, making it one of the most challenging tracks to design tires for. When the Firestone Race Tire Engineering team is designing the tires for Pocono, we must make sure the tires can run smoothly through turn 1 but also carry as much speed as possible coming out of turn 3. To do that, the Firestone Race Tire Engineering team developed new right-side tires that use the same construction as the 2019 Indy 500 tire and the same compound as the 2018 Pocono tire. Paired with left-side tires that use the same race-proven compound and construction from the 2019 Indy 500 tires, this combination provides improved grip and strength to tackle the 'Tricky Triangle.’"

"One thing I think we need to do a bit more is engineer the tracks," he told Autosport.

"I would prefer a bit less over-engineering of the technical regulations, and a bit more engineering of the track layout, rather than investing into 20 cars that should be different every year.

Along with a new set of regulations, Formula 1 will usher in 18-inch wheels from 2021, a move that will be accompanied by a ban on tire blankets, compelling the FIA to enforce tire pressure constraints.

"A standard system to monitor F1 tire temperatures and pressures is planned to be introduced for the 2021 F1 season," an FIA spokesperson told Motorsport.com.

The popular Brazilian is a major coup for the much anticipated new V8 powered Australian open wheel formula, with the one-off outing on September 20-22 providing a return to single seater racing for the ex-F1 star.

Barrichello, the first driver confirmed to race an S5000, enjoyed a successful 19-year F1 career, clocking up 11 race wins and 68 podiums from a record 322 starts.
