  1. I don’t follow late models much but this is one name I’ve always heard and it’s usually not for good circumstances.

  2. When did the Kyle Busch-Stephen Nasse feud happen? I also recall that Naase had issues with Johanna Long as well.

  3. If you look at a list of past Indy lights champions, you don't see a lot of drivers who go on to win Indycar championships. PT, TK, Dixon, and Newgarden. That is it since 1986. Newgarden is the only driver in the last two decades. Pato O'Ward certainly has a shot in the future, and Kirkwood does too, but being an Indy Lights champ is far from being an indicator of a great Indycar driver.

  4. That is true for all motorsports in general. Divisions like NASCAR and Formula 1 have seen drivers who won championships (or at the very least, dominated) at the lower series, but struggled once reaching the top series. Just look at F1's Mick Schumacher and Joylon Palmer or NASCAR's Cole Custer and Casey Atwood.

  5. For Our Motorsports, my guess is that either Sage Karam ran out of sponsorship money and/or one of the drivers brought more funding than Karam did.

  6. It will be interesting to see how Chadwick performs in Indy Lights/NXT, considering that she was the W Series' best driver. While I do hope she does well, I am concerned about the fact that most of her non-W Series starts haven't been the best.

  7. Personally, road course racing defeats the point of SRX, as it's wheelhouse is "TV friendly" Saturday Night short track racing. Plus, very few road courses have lights. But with F1 gaining popularity in the U.S., I wouldn't be surprised if Tony Stewart & co. are entertaining the idea of adding a road course to the 2023 season.

  8. I don't like what this entails... if this potentially turns into a split down the road, it could be devastating to the sport. Look at CART and the IRL.

  9. For a modern day equivalent of the CART-IRL split, there's the PGA Tour-LIV Golf split. When this happens, nobody wins.

  10. Hasn't he already been inducted into the HOF or am I crazy.

  11. He did. Shelmerdine was inducted in 2023 for his accomplishments as a crew chief.

  12. ARCA could be best described as a regional series, as most of the races were in the midwest. While there were some drivers that used ARCA as a stepping stone to NASCAR (i.e. Ryan Newman, Justin Allgaier), the majority of the drivers were either "series regulars" like Frank Kimmel and Bobby Gerhardt (ran the full season) or "weekend warriors" like Brad Smith & Darrell Basham (regarded racing as a hobby than a career). ARCA used older cars, making it a cheaper alternative to NASCAR.

  13. Kevin Harvick. He'll bring in someone like Brock Lesnar or Meisha Tate to fight for him.

  14. Watch the Garage 56 Nascar entry lap the entire field at Le Mans.

  15. Petronas is with Mercedes despite them and Lewis obviously being at odds. Even if Max were the type of person to take a stand in moral/political issues, he wouldn't say a thing about it.

  16. I don't think Max Verstappen has the kind of leverage where he can influence a sponsor's business dealings.

  17. I hope he gets Trackhouse, but where Castroneves goes is probably dependent on how much sponsorship money he can raise.

  18. It's probably sports car racing, specifically endurance racing. Verstappen did say in a previous interview that one of his career goals is to win an endurance race with his father.

  19. Until you blow the motor on the pace lap because, well, it's G2G

  20. Veins has got to be using leftover Honda engines from McLaren's 2015 season.
