Tony Kanaan Whips Us Around Indianapolis Motor Speedway In The Chevy Corvette Z06

IndyCar driver Tony Kanaan takes us for a hot lap around Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 pace car. The 99th running of the Indy 500 takes place this weekend.


In the lead-up to the 2015 Indianapolis 500, Dario Franchitti, Tony Kanaan, and Scott Dixon decided to prank young racecar driver Sage Karam by turning his Chevrolet Camaro into the Karamo.


James Hinchcliffe suffered serious injuries in practice for the Indianapolis 500 when a suspension failure caused his car to crash into the wall. After undergoing surgery, he's now in stable condition.


Ed Carpenter, Josef Newgarden and Helio Castroneves all had their racecars flip during practice for the Indianapolis 500. The crashes forced rules changes from officials for the event's qualifying.


If you spent your Wednesday night stealing an Indy 500 pace car, smashing it through a dealership window with the top down and then ditching the car several miles away some Indiana police would like to have a word with you.


Chevrolet has designed a new aero package for the Dallara DW12 that the six teams running its engines in the 2015 IndyCar Series will be running on this year's road-course races, starting next month in St. Petersburg.


Most racing series compete on one kind of track or another, but not Indy. Its calendar is made up of NASCAR-style speedway races (generally, though not exclusively, identified by a three-digit number indicating the number of miles to be covered) and F1-style road-course and street-circuit races (typically billed as grands prix). And now, it's about to get another of the latter.


The US National Guard has spent $44 million on sponsorships in NASCAR and IndyCar this year, a particularly troubling figure in a time when every military expenditure is given careful scrutiny. That's prompted some members of Congress to question the usefulness of the motorsports partnerships.


Honda and the Andretti family have a lot to celebrate at the moment. Andretti Autosport driver Ryan Hunter-Reay won the 2014 Indianapolis 500 in his Honda-powered car, and Marco Andretti, Mario's grandson, also managed to take the third step on the podium. Apparently, the victory is making them feel magnanimous because Honda and Mario Andretti are giving the chance to ride with him in a two-seat, open wheel car.


Like many of you, I spent my pre-Memorial Day Sunday sitting on the couch, watching racing. It started early, with the 7:00 AM kick off of Monaco Grand Prix coverage. There was a break in between, for things like bathroom stops, walking the dog and acknowledging that my loving girlfriend hadn't abandoned me for lack of attention. That was quickly followed up by a belter of an Indianapolis 500, which featured the second closest finish in race history.


Sunday marked the 98th running of the Indy 500 race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The weather was absolutely beautiful (76 degrees Fahrenheit, not a cloud in the sky), and for the first three-quarters of the race, it was business as usual. Despite the absolutely insane speeds (in excess of 200 miles per hour, constantly), some find it easy to write off a race on an oval track as being less exciting as events that involve both left and right turns, as well as elevation changes. But Sunday's rac


The rumble of racing engines is coming to the campus of the General Motors Powertrain Engineering headquarters in Pontiac, MI, in the near future. The automaker is moving its motorsport operations to the new Performance and Racing Center there in mid-2015.


Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves has learned an important lesson about not sharing his Twitter account, even with family. Following the Grand Prix of Long Beach, where Castroneves finished 11th, a tweet appeared under his account and was later deleted that said: "Indycar officials continuing not punishing some drivers and giving green flag during an accident." It also included an image of a thumbs down over the IndyCar Series logo. It has been preserved online.


Richard Petty (pictured above) made some rather disparaging remarks about IndyCar veteran and current NASCAR driver Danica Patrick (inset) while at the Canadian Motorsports Expo, implying that the 31-year-old could only win a NASCAR race if the rest of the field stayed home. Patrick's best NASCAR finish was eighth place at the 2013 Daytona 500, where she recorded the first pole position for a woman in the sport. She also led the race briefly.


Indy racing legend Andy Granatelli passed away on Sunday in Santa Barbara, CA, due to congestive heart failure. He was 90. Granatelli was famous for his innovation in American open-wheel racing, kicking off his Indy career with an entry in the 1946 race. His creative streak didn't really kick off until the 1960s, though, when the Dallas, TX-born Granatelli began entering a series of wildly powerful supercharged Novi V8s in the Indianapolis 500. This was followed by the arrival of the (in)famous
