The Indy 500: Changing the Road for All

More than a century ago, Carl Fisher and three business partners purchased four 80-acre plots of farmland west of Indianapolis to build a proper proving ground for the emerging automobile industry.

Scott Dixon now a six-time INDYCAR champion

Scott Dixon is building a career for the ages, and he added a sixth NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship to his resume Sunday by finishing third in the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.

Rare, signed A.J. Foyt helmet among new items offered

Today we feature one of Troy Lee Designs’ earliest paint jobs with this Simpson helmet from Gordon’s rookie season in CART in 1993. Gordon drove for A.J. Foyt’s team that season, finishing second at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and third in...
