Announcing New Divergent Racing Safety Alliance
The first order of business has to be the lethal catch-fences. A simple proposed solution.
Their first order of business has to be the lethal catch-fences. A simple proposed solution.
When it comes to racing safety, drivers, sanctioning bodies, safety organizations, clubs, series, track owners, circuit designers, safety personnel, equipment manufacturers, coaches/HPDE groups, insurance companies, journalists and every other motorsport constituent play an important role. Stakeholders may perform different jobs, but they all converge on a race course.  That’s why a diverse group of safety advocates has united to form a cohesive, collective and more impactful voice for the greater good of everyone in motorsports.

Racing’s history is studded with shining moments, but is also fraught with terrible tragedies.  There have always been heroes on the track, yet there have also been many others behind the scenes.  Over the years, a handful of brave souls have championed for safety improvements and saved many lives, but progress has been painfully slow.

Final 2018 IndyCar TV Results
Scott Dixon
Scott Dixon

IndyCar pulled in 14.2 million viewers for 2018, down 2 million from 2017. By comparison F1 averages around 50 million per race globally.

Hopefully the rumors are true that Liberty wants to buy the series and the speedway. If they use their international TV contacts and can significantly increase IndyCar's global viewership, IndyCar sponsor deals will sky rocket and the series will be on solid footing again.

NASCAR CEO Brian France arrested for DWI, controlled substance possession (3rd Update)
Brian France
Brian France thinks he can beat the charges. When you have $billions you can line a lot of pockets

UPDATE NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France ain't exactly rolling over in his DWI and Oxycodone possession case ... 'cause he pled not guilty to multiple charges in an NY court.

France -- who's currently on a leave of absence from NASCAR -- was arrested August 5 in Sag Harbor, NY.

Cops say they pulled BF over and suspected he was intoxicated ... so they gave him a field sobriety test -- which they say he bombed.

During the stop, police say they also found Oxycodone pain pills.

Rossi drove hard but his mistake did him in
Check out highlights from the final round of the 2018 IndyCar series in Sonoma, California where Scott Dixon, Alexander Rossi, Will Power and Josef Newgarden went head to head to battle it out for the championship.

Rossi had a fast car and passed every driver in the field at least once, but when Marco Andretti lifted in turn 1 on lap 1 and Rossi hit the back of him, his chances were over.

But it was exciting to watch him pass every driver in the field, and he probably would have won, Hunter-Reay 2nd, Dixon third, and Rossi would not be IndyCar champion.

Sonoma's Split From IndyCar Mostly Due To Financial Losses

The sparse crowd led to Sonoma's demise
The Verizon IndyCar Series held its final event at Sonoma Raceway yesterday, and track President & GM Steve Page said the decision was made because the venue loses "between $200,000-$250,000 every time IndyCar comes here," according to Bob Padecky of the Santa Rosa PRESS DEMOCRAT.

Page said, "We have a good fan base and my staff loves IndyCar. ... [But] the last four years we have not broken even. In the 14 years we've made money only a handful of times. I majored in political science in college but even I can do simple arithmetic. We are not a nonprofit operation."

Harvick calls Goodyear tires crap

Goodyear would be wise to put bold letters on each tire: Caution: May Explode Without Warning

Kevin Harvick didn’t hold back about how he felt about NASCAR’s tire supplier following a right front puncture and crash on lap 147 of the South Point Casino 400 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

NASCAR's Goodyear tires have been exploding for years. 

"Well, there was something wrong from the time we put the tires on," Harvick said on NBCSN television. "It was like Russian roulette every time you put these piece of crap tires on and try to drive around the race track. One time it is tight, one time it is loose, one time they are blistered. We had a great car and then you put a set of tires on it and you can’t hardly make it through the field. I just hate it for everyone on our Mobil 1 Ford."

NASCAR usurps IndyCar on NBCSN
IndyCar will always get the royal screwing when NASCAR runs over.
IndyCar will always get the royal screwing from NBCSN when it comes to NASCAR
NBC Sports received some scrutiny and criticism from IndyCar fans yesterday after the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race from Las Vegas ran long, causing NBCSN to both push back the start of the IndyCar season finale from Sonoma and eventually miss part of the first lap of the race.

NBCSN initially pushed the IndyCar race back by a few minutes and IndyCar’s official Twitter account tweeted that the race “was on standby while we wait for @NBCSN’s current broadcast to wrap up.”

NASCAR’s crash-filled race was red-flagged for a wreck right around the time the IndyCar race finally started, and NBCSN switched to IndyCar coverage only after missing several turns of the first lap of the race. NBC Sports did start simulcasting the race on CNBC until the NASCAR race wrapped up, but several commenters on Twitter complained that move was not announced early enough, causing some to miss the first seconds from Sonoma.

Late in Saturday’s Xfinity Series race, an executive from the South Point, title sponsor of Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race, showed concern over the mostly empty grandstands at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

It was much better on Sunday. Not great. But better.

Not many people saw IndyCar's grand finale because it was on NBCSN

NBCSN earned a 0.40 overnight rating for yesterday's Verizon IndyCar Series Grand Prix of Sonoma, up a slight 3% from a 0.39 for last year's race but that is only because the NASCAR race ran late and the NASCAR viewers were still tuned in for the first 30 min, otherwise it would be down.

The final rating will likely be lower, but we shall see tomorrow. Regardless, IndyCar puts its grand finale on NBCSN with a championship on the line to ensure the number of viewers will be at their absolute minimum. The grand finale. The big hoopla, and almost no one saw it.

That’s how NBCSN announcers Leigh Diffey, Townsend Bell, Paul Tracy, Robin Miller, Katie Hargitt, Jon Beekhuis and Kevin Lee all predict how Sunday’s season-ending and more importantly the championship-deciding Grand Prix of Sonoma will play out.

Admittedly, there is some sentiment to see Alexander Rossi win the title, but when all is said and done, Dixon is the man.

Engineer's Lowdown with Tom Stallard - Singapore GP

Vandoorne
Stoffel Vandoorne's McLaren F1 Race Engineer Tom Stallard explains how the bumpy Marina Bay Circuit is one of the most unique and demanding tracks on the Formula 1 calendar.

Last year’s race was the longest, eclipsing the two-hour mark by three minutes and 23 seconds, beating the previous record from the 2015 Singapore Grand Prix, which ended 1 minute and 22 seconds past the two-hour limit.

No one complains, however, as Singapore is a destination venue on the Formula One calendar. Its cutting-edge culture and incredible modernization have turned the tropical island located only one degree north of the equator into a global hub for business and tourism, with Formula One’s visit to the world’s only island city-state combining both in glorious fashion.
