It was a long time in the making, but when Mario Andretti finally was honored Thursday night by the Road Racing Drivers Club at Long Beach on Thursday, magic happened, writes John Oreovicz.
Almost no one is happy with the mess that was the end of the IndyCar Series race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday. The question that remains is, are official heads going to roll?
Only three drivers -- legends Rick Mears and Al Unser Jr. included -- have won both the Indianapolis 500 and an Indy car championship multiple times. Welcome to the club, Mr. Franchitti.
No one felt worse than Mario Andretti after Al Unser Jr. punted him with 12 laps to go to win the 1989 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Except maybe Unser.
The best thing about Al Unser Jr.'s retirement is he left with everything intact. Still, he will be missed.
Al Unser Jr.'s announcement and Adrian Fernandez's '04 IndyCar debut were among the stories at Phoenix.
Al Unser Jr. is one of IndyCar's biggest names, but he has no ride at Miami. His legendary father weighs in.
