2015 Indianapolis 500 Press Conference
Helio Castroneves, Justin Wilson and Bryan Clauson Helio Castroneves, Justin Wilson and Bryan Clauson met with the media lunchtime today at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as teams test the new speedway aero package for the first time. Wilson: It's great to be back and great to be part of Andretti Autosport and looking forward to the month. It's been a long off-season, a lot of time thinking about getting back in the car and what it takes and how it's all going to work. Just pleased to get it started, and so far it seems good. We just got to take it one step at a time. There's a lot of work to be done, new body kits, everyone is trying to work them out and get a feel for them and go from there.
Chevy Indycar At Grand Prix Of Indianapolis Ed Carpenter, Co-Owner Of Cfh Racing With Sarah Fisher And Wink Hartman, And Co-Driver Of The No. 20 Fuzzy’s Premium Vodka Chevrolet, was the guest on the Verizon IndyCar Series weekly teleconference following the first career Series’ victory for CFH driver Josef Newgarden at Barber Motorsports Park. Ed is the driver who has won the pole position for the Indianapolis 500 the last two years and will be one of the drivers participating in the Verizon IndyCar Series promoter test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on May 3rd.
by Brian Carroccio I wouldn't go so far as to say it was a foregone conclusion. But if you asked me prior to the start of the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season, and even after the first three races I'd have told you Josef Newgarden scoring his IndyCar win in 2015 was a pretty safe bet. Still, don't confuse the perceived inevitability the CFH Racing driver would find victory lane with the fact Newgarden won Sunday's Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. Because when one goes beyond the mushy, feel good headlines of a popular young all-American, dimple-faced kid from Tennessee scoring a much-awaited first win, one soon realizes there was absolutely nothing inevitable about the sublime drive turned in by the 24-year-old Sunday.
Race recap A beautiful spring afternoon in the hills outside of Birmingham became the perfect backdrop for the celebration of Josef Newgarden's first Verizon IndyCar Series win. The 24-year-old from Hendersonville, Tenn. drove his Chevrolet to the front of the field in Sunday's Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama to claim first victory of his career.
by Mark J. Cipolloni Anyone who says IndyCar can't put on a heck of a show wasn't watching Sunday. 24-year old American Josef Newgarden won his first IndyCar Sunday at Barber Motorsports Park in the Grand Prix of Alabama IndyCar race, and he did it in style. With his fuel running out Newgarden held off a charging Graham Rahal as Americans finished 1-2 ahead of Scott Dixon from New Zealand.
by Brian Carroccio For a second consecutive day, Juncos Racing's Spencer Pigot started from pole and led every lap of the Legacy Indy Lights 100 at Barber Motorsports Park. The win moved Pigot to the top of the championship standings in Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires series championship, as Carlin's Ed Jones had contact in the early going which relegated him to an 11th place finish.
by Brian Carroccio Helio Castroneves led a Team Penske sweep of the top-3 in Verizon IndyCar Series qualifying today at Barber Motorsports Park, capturing pole position for tomorrow's Honda Grand Prix of Alabama. The pole is the 43rd of Castroneves' career, and his second in a row after winning pole last week at Long Beach. Will Power was second 0.198 seconds behind the Brazilian with Simon Pagenaud third.
by Brian Carroccio Juncos Racing's Spencer Pigot scored a dominant win in Race 1 of the Legacy Indy Lights 100 today at Barber Motorsports Park. Starting from pole, the Orlando native quickly established a gap over second-place Jack Harvey, went on to lead every lap, and ultimately scored his first Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires series victory by a 6.7 second margin over Harvey.
by Lucille Dust Coming into the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season everyone was anxious to see how the new Chevrolet and Honda aero kits would do perform. Fans, media and even drivers were unsure of what exactly we would see in the opening Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Heck, when I asked James Hinchcliffe how his car would react when passing another car, the friendly Canadian "I will find out when I make the first pass."
by Mark J. Cipolloni I'm sorry, I may be old school; however I have been around long enough to recognize what works in motorsports and what does not. When it comes to the world's foremost open wheel racing series - IndyCar and Formula One - both have witnessed steady measurable declines in recent seasons. And it's time for a major shake-up. In particular F1 and IndyCar need a major revamp of the technical regulations in time for the 2017 season.
