I don't see the point of adding downforce at Iowa.

It is optional and it may turn out that is unnecessary.

That is exactly what I like about it. Gives the teams an alternate strategy to try. Maybe some take it, maybe some don't, but it will add some excitement if there is a mix.

Mechanic and owner Vince Granatelli died at age 78. His team earned two wins with Roberto Guerrero and two wins with Arie Luyendyk.

Ernie Francis Jr gets ride in Indy Lights this year, he was good in the rain in F4 and FAmericas a couple years ago. Hopefully he does well and gets some sponsor eyeballs.

Congrats to Helio Castroneves and Simon Pagenaud on their overall victory at Daytona with Meyer Shank Racing.



Congrats also to Colton Herta and Pato O'ward on their LMP2 victory with DragonSpeed.

Castroneves just can’t stop winning, even when coming up to 47. Definitely an old school racer in the states.

He had been in the doldrums for a while at Team Penske, with the one win at Detroit in 2014. Apart from a few podium finishes there were no wins until Iowa in 2017, which was his last for them.

He then switched full time to the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, with Acura Team Penske in 2018 but it didn't come good until 2020 when he won the championship. He then left them at the end of 2020 for Konica Milota and won Daytona for the first time in 2021.Then there was Indy last year and now Daytona again this year.

peebee2 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
With Chilton finally giving up, what do we think this means for his family team in Indycar?

Will this allow them to push on to a better level, or will they be swallowed up by Hollinger?

According to this article from Racer.com, Juncos Hollinger Racing have purchased Carlin’s inventory of IndyCar assets and there is a technical alliance with Carlin.

Indy car shows well with 2 ice rookies at ROC, Jimmie Johnson and Colton Herta (filling in for Pastrana who is injured)
