He was the star of today's race. While it is certainly not the result he expected, it's evident the crowd loved him. I hope he comes back.

Incredibly fortunate for Dixon his car landed the way it did.
Could easily have been like Dan Weldon or Greg Moore's fatal crashes with massive head trauma when the car's top side hit track structures.

Indeed, Dixon's lucky to be alive, let alone uninjured (for the most part... heard his ankle was giving him some problems)....

Can't believe Dixon is currently running P6 in today's race on Belle Isle after the massive wreck at Indy last week.... amazing.

Appreciating Helio, once again, for possibly the last time

https://www.yahoo.com/sports/dizinno...164541736.html

The ultimate bridesmaid of CART/Indy, Hélio Castroneves has never won a championship but 2nd four times and 3rd places four times.
Didn't know that til I read the article.

I remember watching him in Indy Lights way back in the day. Only Scott Dixon, Helio Castro-Neves, and Tony Kanaan are left from the golden age.

IndyCar world comes to Nazareth for Marco Andretti’s wedding

IndyCar world comes to Nazareth for Marco Andretti?s wedding ? MotorSportsTalk

Speaking of bridesmaids, quite a few Indy drivers came to Marco Andretti's wedding.
Quite a beautiful bride of Marco's as well.

Portland replaces the Glen for Labor Day weekend.



Haven't spoken with my brother yet about it but it is unfortunate given how he stepped up to the plate to rescue a race weekend that got scrapped in Boston by Indycar by offering the Glen.

IndyCar's prototype windshield. Not the best, but compared to the alternative Halo, this is awesome. I hope it's a success and forces F1 to change.

Lucky for Bordais, but I also like him as well. Talented and hard working driver.

Nice article about him, his family and St. Pete community.

Was rooting for Rossi to be able to pull off the pass but it didn't work out.
