IndyCar continues to get a black eye from their failed Boston GP

UPDATE Nearly a year after the Boston Grand Prix folded, several hundred ticket buyers are still owed refunds while newly released documents show the bankrupt promoters of the IndyCar race are blaming the ticket fiasco on a prominent fundraising firm that worked for Gov. Charlie Baker’s campaign.

A total of just 1,180 ticket buyers have received refunds through Attorney General Maura Healey’s office, which negotiated a deal with the national IndyCar organization to pony up $925,000 to pay for refunds.
