Fernando Alonso unlikely to ever run full IndyCar season (Update)
UPDATE 
Fernando Alonso is used to big crowds and big money.
Fernando Alonso is used to big crowds, 100 million watching on TV every race, and big money.

A reader writes, Dear AR1, do you ever see Fernando Alonso ever running a full IndyCar season? Lewis Clarke

Dear Lewis, Fernando said he might run a full season in 2020, but we think it will be a cold day in hell before he ever does. Let's get real and list at least 10 facts:

  1. He appears more intent on cherry picking the biggest races around the world.
  2. He is keen to now always put himself in a winning ride - Toyota in WEC, Cadillac in the Rolex 24, an Andretti-affiliated car for the Indy 500
  3. Would he risk his life to run in front of 10,000 at Iowa in the middle of corn fields?

Kurt Busch's ex-girlfriend guilty of fraud, tax evasion
Patricia Driscoll
Patricia Driscoll
Patricia Driscoll, Kurt Busch's former girlfriend and Armed Forces Foundation executive director, was found guilty of fraud and tax evasion Thursday by a federal jury, according to a Department of Justice spokesman.

After four days of jury deliberation that followed five weeks of testimony in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., Driscoll was found guilty on two counts of wire fraud, one count of first-degree fraud and two counts of tax evasion.

Federal prosecutors, according to the indictment, alleged Driscoll lied to donors by stating that 94 to 96 percent of all donations went to military members and their families; that she falsely directed the foundation's books to characterize that that money went to veterans and their families when they went to her; and that she filed false tax returns that did not include commissions from fundraising and other benefits she received in addition to her salary.

Aldo Costa, the man who made Schumacher and has now made Hamilton, by designing superior race cars. Both were excellent drivers, but in F1, the car is 99% of the equation

With his eleventh win of the season in Abu Dhabi, Lewis equaled his 2014 tally of victories – the first hybrid season. What’s more, the 408 points he scored in 2018 constitute a new record for a Formula One season.

This was previously held by Sebastian Vettel for his 397 points in 2013. It was also the year in which Vettel matched Michael Schumacher’s 2004 tally of 13 victories.

A further record that Lewis set at the Yas Marina Circuit was that for most wins by an engine manufacturer.

Lewis has spent his entire Formula One career driving Mercedes-powered cars, first at McLaren (2007 ‑ 2012) and then for the works team (since 2013).

2018 NASCAR TV ratings continue downward spiral
NASCAR's plummet continues
NASCAR's plummet continues
NASCAR’s top series had another record low for TV viewership this season. The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series averaged 3.3 million viewers across 33 races on NBC, Fox, NBCSN and FS1 this season (excluding rainouts at Martinsville, Bristol and Indianapolis). That figure is down from 4.1 million viewers last year, and down from 4.5 million viewers in ’16.

Of the 33 weekend race telecasts this year, more than two-thirds likely had record low viewership, including the Daytona 500 and championship race from Homestead-Miami Speedway. A positive note came with the new Roval event on Sept. 30. The telecast drew just over 3.2 million viewers, which is the best for a playoff race from Charlotte Motor Speedway since ’14.
