If there’s one name that’s all over open-wheel racing lately, it’s Alexander Rossi. Not only was he the first American to race in Formula One in years, but this year, he won America’s most famous race: the Indianapolis 500. So, of course, Rossi’s here with us live now to answer all your questions.
This story is one of the strangest and most debatable in Ferrari’s history. It’s not clear if Ferrari was once about to dump Formula One in favor of America’s greatest race, or if the company was so petty that they built an entire car for a bluff.
Fans got to watch 71 laps of IndyCar racing at Texas Motor Speedway today after a rain delay pushed the race from Saturday night to this afternoon, and then a torrential downpour ensured that this race wouldn’t be finishing this weekend. In fact, it will now be finishing on August 27 instead.
At the Indianapolis 500 last weekend, we asked a bunch of IndyCar drivers how they would make the sport more popular. “Produce the same kind of race as always,” driver Ed Carpenter suggested. “The product speaks for itself,” Marco Andretti said. This year’s Indy 500 produced the third-lowest television ratings in 30…
This year’s Indianapolis 500 lured in 350,000 fans, one of the biggest crowds in all of racing history. Between that huge crowd and the fact that the Indy 500 is—for many—just a giant party, there were insane amounts of trash left at the raceway. Here’s a look at the aftermath.
Manor Formula One reserve driver and Indianapolis 500 rookie Alexander Rossi appeared to coast through the finish running on what had to be leftover fumes to win today’s 100th running of America’s most famous race.

It’s time for the so-called “greatest spectacle in racing”: the Indianapolis 500. This year’s race is even more intense given that it’s the 100th running of the big show. Here’s why you should tune in, besides the fact that if you don’t you’re a bad American.
The Indianapolis 500 doesn’t greet winners with a big bottle of champagne as most races do. They hand the winner an ice cold bottle of milk. This creates a curious artifact every year: a list of driver’s milk preferences. Who wants the whole experience? Who’d rather water it down? Behold! Here’s this year’s list.
The Verizon IndyCar Series’ James Hinchcliffe might have just pulled off one of the best comebacks in racing. In 2015, Hinchcliffe almost died in an Indianapolis 500 practice crash when a suspension piece went through his leg. This year, he’ll start the Indy 500 on pole position for its landmark 100th running.
IndyCar may need to take a good, long look at its shrinking grid this year. If not even the 100th running of its most famous race can buck the trend of teams scaling back, there may be an issue. Case in point, the all-female Grace Autosport effort, who wasn’t on the entry list because they couldn’t get a car.

Battling nausea and inner-ear problems, pole sitter Will Power will miss the Verizon IndyCar Series season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on Sunday. Oriol Servia will take his place in the car.
With any tragedy in motor racing, there are always calls to improve safety. Now one of the biggest debates in racing has been reignited by the death of IndyCar driver Justin Wilson: whether to phase out the open cockpit race cars found in Formula One, IndyCar and similar series in favor of cars with closed cockpits.…
It’s more than an hour after the checkered flag at this year’s Milwaukee IndyFest. It’s been even longer since Justin Wilson’s engine went up in flames, with a late-race mechanical failure sabotaging what could have been a runner-up finish to old Champ Car sparring partner Sebastien Bourdais at the classic one-mile…
