Almost certainly, these games will be played against teams closest to each other — the Florida teams play each other, same with the New York teams or Los Angeles teams — to limit travel.
“The fact that the Twelve Hours of Sebring is the finale is awesome,” Rossi said. “It’s one of the highlight races of the series, no doubt. The fact that it really is going to be a winner-take-all situation no less is really special for teams, drivers and fans. It’s a big event. It’s a lot […]
Said Ricky Taylor in a Team Penske release: “We showed all weekend that we were going to be tough to beat and it played out that way in the race. I hate the way that it ended and in no way did I mean to take out (Derani). It’s Petit Le Mans. Everyone wants to […]
“It’s very, very sad news,” Taylor said in a tweet from Wayne Taylor Racing. “Hard to believe. Jim and I drove together and won at Daytona and Sebring in 1996. My condolences to his family. I always said he was one of the nicest people and one of the best teammates I ever had.”
“That was two stints of hell for me,” Dixon, who had won in his previous two endurance races with the team this season in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and Petit Le Mans, told NBC Sports’ Marty Snider. “Getting connected in turn 10 did a ton of damage to the car. We were having a […]
The No. 7 Team Penske Acura of Helio Castroneves and Ricky Taylor leads by two points over the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Cadillac of Renger van der Zande and Ryan Briscoe. For the third time this season, Rossi will join Castroneves and Taylor, who have won four of the past five races.
“It wasn’t easy,” Taylor told NBCSN reporter Parker Kligerman. “For us leading the championship, it’s all about minimal risk. You weren’t going to win the race in the first 20-30 minutes, it was just all about survival and handing the car over to Antonio and waiting for it to dry out, and thankfully it did.
“I’ve only been in that car once previously, which was Daytona (where the team won the Rolex 24 in January), and that set a great precedence for how we rolled into the IndyCar season and getting three (victories) in a row. I hope that applies as well. We can win last weekend, St. Pete and […]
POINTS: In the DPi division, the No. 10 Cadillac of Ryan Briscoe and Renger van der Zande is first in the standings by 8 points over the No. 7 Acura of Ricky Taylor and Helio Castroneves with two races remaining. No. 3 Corvette drivers Jordan Taylor and Antonio Garcia are first in GTLM.
“It’s fantastic to be in the car with Scott again,” van der Zande said. “Every time he shows up, we win a race. So that’s really nice. I think with Ryan, we had a really good season. We were leading the championship until (the Nov. 1 race at) Laguna Seca. I think we still have […]
