Penske: Guarantee full-time guys Indy 500 starting spots

May 25, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS — Roger Penske has a very simple solution for the predicament the Indianapolis 500 created when one of its most popular drivers, James Hinchcliffe, was bumped from the field during qualifying last weekend. Teams that run the entire season should be guaranteed spots in the biggest race of the year. "As I look at it now," the Hall of Fame team owner said, "with sponsors being so important and the teams building up for Indianapolis, and that really being the hallmark of probably your sponsorship running at Indy, it's a real tough pill to take if you don't make...

Brit Jay Howard not stepping out of Indy 500 for anyone

May 25, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS — There's an old saying around Gasoline Alley that the Indianapolis 500 picks its winners, a testament to the brutal and unpredictable drama that unfolds every Memorial Day weekend. Jay Howard thinks it should go one further: "The Indy 500 also picks its participants." That was evident last weekend, when series championship contender James Hinchcliffe joined Pippa Mann in getting bumped from the 33-car starting field. The stunning development caught nearly everyone by surprise, and immediately speculation began that a deal would be made to get Hinchcliffe a ride. Just as quickly attention turned to Howard, whose AFS Racing...

Indestructible Foyt back at Indy after another health scare

May 25, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS — A.J. Foyt still cuts an imposing figure around Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Everyone knows of him, everyone knows his record and it seems everyone here has actually met one of the greatest drivers ever. He has seen and done virtually everything around this 2.5-mile oval, even getting retirement advice from inaugural Indianapolis 500 winner Ray Harroun three decades before he actually put it to use. And yet, most of it wouldn't have happened without Foyt's ability to survive a series of harrowing, life-threatening predicaments that read like a plot from a bad horror movie, including his second round with...

Jeff Gordon calls NASCAR Hall of Fame selection 'surreal'

May 25, 2018

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Jeff Gordon didn't give much thought to NASCAR while racing sprint cars in Indiana as a teenager. He was too busy trying to get into open wheel racing. But when Gordon's career stalled, he headed South to try his hand at stock car racing and went on to win 93 Cup races — third on the career list — and four championships while helping NASCAR move from a predominantly regional sport to the mainstream in the 1990s. Gordon was honored for his career achievements Wednesday when he was selected to the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Gordon said...

Close calls force Indy 500 to learn lessons, coping skills

May 25, 2018

INDIANAPOLIS — Takuma Sato learned a tough, painful lesson from his spectacular final lap crash at the 2012 Indianapolis 500. Eventually, it paid dividends. The Japanese driver believes he might not be the defending Indy winner heading into Sunday's race had it not been for the ill-fated passing attempt that sent him spinning hard into the first-turn wall and gave Dario Franchitti his third and final race win six years ago. "It helped me a lot mentally, physically and technically," Sato said. "You don't understand the challenge of winning unless you are there. Last year, I attacked it (passing Helio...
