I had high hopes for the new pairing of driver Sebastien Bourdais and the Dale Coyne Racing team going into the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season. After the Frenchman's rare error in qualifying Saturday, I figured I'd have to wait until the next race at Long Beach to see if he could be a co…

Kurt Busch may have led only one lap Sunday, but he's finally a Daytona 500 champion. In his 16th try at NASCAR's biggest race, Busch was in exactly the right place when Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson both ran out of gas while leading over the last two laps. Busch held off a hard-charging Rya…

Well, I missed last week, which I will blame on my Indianapolis 500 hangover. It was a lot of buildup over the last month or so for a race that took three hours to run. I completely blew the call in my annual column as my pick Juan Pablo Montoya crashed on lap 63 (first time he's ever crashe…
Over 100 years ago, ground was broken for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, a 2½-mile racetrack outside of Indianapolis. The first event held at the track did not involve racecars at all; it was a helium gas-filled balloon race, which took place in 1909, before the oval was even completed.
