New OP

New OPKevin Neely, Mike Shaw, and Doug Patterson review the week’s news in IndyCar, the Mazda Road to Indy, Rally, and Formula 1. Kevin keeps trying to throw AMA Supercross into the mix, but so far he’s not found much traction.

The USF2000 Winterfest has started! Doug leads us through Tuesday’s activities and looks at the results as a foreshadowing of how the regular season will shape up. Kevin leads us through the silly season news in IndyCar and how Jay Penske may have pissed away (literally) a chance at securing Kathrine Legge and TrueCar. Mike gives us a preview of the second round of the WRC, the always fast and epic Rally Sweden, and some news about a major name in rally coming to the Global Rallycross series. Finally, the three of us take stock of the newly revealed 2013 Formula 1 racing machines. Fewer of the teams are running the step-noses that were so common last season, but they’re not completely gone.

Lastly, we reveal the winners of our 2013 Mazdaspeed Motorsports calendar and 2012 Speedway Directory, and we announce our penultimate contest to give away “Think Fast: A Racer’s Why-To Guide to Winning”.
