Catching Up With Indy 500 Starter Darren Manning
by Stephen Cox "When I was doing it, I got paid to drive. You were judged on your merit as a driver... not the check that you brought," Darren Manning said while sipping an after-hours beer and relaxing in the lobby of his company's new facility on the west side of Indianapolis. "I got chosen to drive by Ganassi, Foyt and Walker. It was a very fun time. There was a great camaraderie between all the drivers because the drivers up and down the field were getting paid. The sport has changed a lot."
IndyCar's return to Road America a Smashing Success
by Mark J. Cipolloni Indy cars had raced annually at Road America from 1982 to 2003 under CART sanction with great success, but struggled under Champ Car off and on through 2007 as Tony George took his hammer to work every day in a campaign to destroy CART. The crowds stayed away and with Champ Car going out of business early in 2008, and IndyCar and Michael Andretti trying to rebuild Milwaukee, Road America was left off the IndyCar schedule for years.

By Richard RJ Valentine In my 40 years as a pro-racer, there have been memorable highlights and multiple finishes, but there have also been serious injuries. Same can be said for many other drivers but, in some cases, they lost their racing career and in others, their life. I have always contended that it's impossible to understand how critical track safety is, unless you've personally been behind the wheel, racing at 100+ miles per hour, knowing you could hit a wall that might maim or kill you. The bottom line is track operators aren't the ones risking their lives in the driver's seat.
KOHLER Grand Prix Road America is one of the flagship tracks not only in America, but globally, and everyone is excited that the Verizon IndyCar Series is returning this year.The KOHLER Grand Prix will be the first Indy car event conducted at Road America since 2007 and the 26th Indy car race at the track since it hosted its first Indy car event in 1982. Can the qualifying record set by Dario Franchitti, 1:39.866, 145.924 mph, Aug. 19, 2000 in a CART IndyCar be beaten or are the current IndyCars too lame? We are about to find out.
