IndyCar puts Castroneves on probation through June (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: April 22, 2014, 3:03 pm]
IndyCar has put Helio Castroneves on probation through June because he violated the series' social media policy. Castroneves was penalized Tuesday for a tweet sent from his official account after the Long Beach, Calif., race on April 13 that criticized race control for not penalizing drivers during the race. The tweet included an image of IndyCar's official logo with a ''thumbs down'' symbol photo-shopped in the center. The tweet was deleted not long after it appeared, and Castroneves later posted that his sister had sent the missive from his account without his permission.

Mike Conway victory validates Ed Carpenter Racing (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: April 14, 2014, 11:56 am]
A day after Dario Franchitti announced his retirement, another IndyCar driver said he was also getting out of his car. Ed Carpenter's decision in November to race only on ovals and to turn his car over to a more skilled driver on road and street courses was largely overshadowed by Franchitti's sudden retirement because of injuries suffered in a crash a month earlier. Carpenter wanted Mike Conway, who had willingly walked away from ovals a year earlier, behind the wheel and said hiring the British driver would ''strengthen our team by competing for victories at every single event.'' It couldn't have been an easy decision for Carpenter, the professional race car driver. But as the owner of Ed Carpenter Racing, he had to make what appeared to be the best decision for his young race team.

Paul Tracy, one of the most outspoken and polarizing drivers in recent history, has been given a microphone to opine about the current state of IndyCar. Tracy begins a six-race stint as an analyst for NBC Sports Network on Sunday at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. It's a dream-come-true for race fans, who have longed for someone with Tracy's candor and knowledge to tell it like it is in the booth. Although Tracy never held back on or off the track during his driving days, he's not sure how far he can push the envelope in the booth.

Katie Walsh gets late Grand National ride (AFP) [Yahoo! Sports: April 5, 2014, 3:01 am]
Katie Walsh picked up a last minute ride in the world's greatest steeplechase the Grand National on Saturday at Aintree racecourse, Liverpool, when she came in for the injured Michael Fogarty on outsider Vesper Bell. Walsh, part of an Irish racing family including Grand National winning trainer father Ted and whose brother is riding great Ruby, went close to becoming the first woman jockey to win the race when she finished third on Seabass in 2012. "Michael Fogarty was meant to ride him and I am sure he will get plenty of rides in the race in the future," Walsh told Channel Four. Walsh had faith in her ride, trained in Ireland by champion trainer Willie Mullins, despite being around a 50/1 chance and having fallen at the first in a race over the fearsome National fences earlier this season at Aintree.

Kanaan prepares for debut in Franchitti's old ride (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: March 29, 2014, 3:51 pm]
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Tony Kanaan will make his debut with Target/Chip Ganassi Racing in Sunday's season-opening IndyCar race, and expectations will be high for the defending Indianapolis 500 winner. He left KVSH Racing last season to join the Ganassi organization, and was promoted into Dario Franchitti's coveted seat when Franchitti was forced to retire because of injuries suffered in an October crash at Houston. It's a high-profile ride - Franchitti won three championships and two Indy 500s in the red No. 10 - and comes with the pressure of continuing the success. I got hired for one thing - to keep that tradition of the car.'' Kanaan has been aided by the presence of Franchitti, who has remained with the organization in an undefined role.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Dario Franchitti found a spot on the Chip Ganassi Racing timing stand and settled in for the first IndyCar practice of the season. He donned a headset, listened carefully to Tony Kanaan's comments and studied the speed charts. It's the new normal for the three-time Indianapolis 500 winner. Forced into a reluctant retirement because of injuries suffered in an October crash at Houston, the 40-year-old Franchitti is now at the track in an undefined role with Ganassi.

Ganassi ducks brush-back from Team Penske (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: March 28, 2014, 2:48 pm]
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Chip Ganassi just wanted to watch a Yankees game, not dodge a brush-back pitch from his biggest rival. The president of Team Penske aimed his barbs high and tight at Ganassi, and now IndyCar's top two organizations are embroiled in a back-and-forth verbal spat that quickly spiced up the series' version of Opening Day. It began when Penske President Tim Cindric said Penske and Ganassi have an ''intense competition'' instead of a rivalry because ''rivalries take place over a long period of time.'' ''If you want to think of it in baseball terms, it would be the Yankees and the (Miami) Marlins - a team with a long history against a younger team that came on strong and won a couple of World Series,'' Cindric told USA Today. That didn't sit well at all at Chip Ganassi Racing, which has won five of the last six IndyCar championships and three Indianapolis 500s since 2008.
