IndyCar rallies together in wake of Wickens' accident

Aug 20, 2018

LONG POND, Pa. — Alexander Rossi and Robert Wickens have forged a bit of a rivalry this season. They've tangled on the track a few times, and exchanged the occasional verbal dart — some more playful than others, like when Wickens jokingly locked Rossi in a prison cell during a promotional event last month. But animosity between IndyCar drivers tends to dissolve quickly amid grim reminders of the sport's dangers. Wickens was just a few laps into the race at Pocono Raceway on Sunday when he connected with Ryan Hunter-Reay and soared into the catchfence. The fencing was shredded, and...

Aug 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — Conserving oil is no longer an economic imperative for the U.S., the Trump administration declares in a major new policy statement that threatens to undermine decades of government campaigns for gas-thrifty cars and other conservation programs.

Rossi wins at Pocono in race marred by violent wreck

Aug 20, 2018

LONG POND, Pa. — Alexander Rossi was as worried as the rest of the IndyCar field when a violent wreck shot Robert Wickens' car airborne, ripped up the catchfence and left the tub of the rookie's Honda toppled on the asphalt. The crash at Pocono Raceway was the latest grim reminder how drivers in open-wheel racing put their lives on the line. "It's part of our job, right? You've got to compartmentalize," Rossi said. "You've got to accept it and deal with that emotion after the race." Wickens was airlifted to a hospital and was being treated for injuries to...
