time to get on board

NOTHING LIKE TWO consecutive weekends at the track to reinforce how lucky we are to be alive when car culture is at—or at least headed toward—its peak. After Indy and Detroit, with a day at Gridlife in between, it’s clear to me: There are more ways to, as we say at Autoweek, “do car culture” today than there have been at probably any other time in history. And there are definitely more people doing it. And, as much as I hate to use column space to say it, the majority of it is happening with minimal support from the companies who, for just a fraction of the money they spend with Facebook and Google—two of the most destructive companies in human history—could probably benefit from these insanely high levels of enthusiasm…

about the cover

Team Penske NTT IndyCar Series driver Simon Pagenaud certainly had a Month of May to remember. The 35-year-old—he even celebrated a birthday in May—kicked off the month with a win in the IndyCar Grand Prix and closed it out with a victory in the 103rd Indianapolis 500 on May 26 (LAT photographer Gavin Baker captured him getting misty after). Pagenaud’s first Indy 500 win—and the first Indy 500 won by the pole sitter since Team Penske’s Hélio Castroneves pulled off the feat in 2009—included a final 13-lap battle with Alexander Rossi that will be talked about for years. Autoweek’s Matt Weaver takes a close look at Team Penske’s 18th Indy 500 triumph starting on page 26.…

a man forged in fire

You couldn’t look at Niki’s face without remembering what made it that way—and how incredible that made his later achievements look. He was savagely burned in a Formula 1 crash at the old, full-scale Nürburgring, Grand Prix racing’s most foreboding circuit—a circuit that Lauda opposed, arguing its old-fashioned hazards left too little margin for modern race cars out of control to be recovered before crashing. As he explained to me, “I want that the driver is not a dummy, just watching the way the guardrail is going to hit his face.” But after speaking his mind, he drove his heart out, hurling his Ferrari to front-row qualifying speeds. Halfway around the 14.7-mile second lap, something broke, and he slammed into the close-by, flimsy barriers. Trapped in flaming wreckage until hauled out by…

revved up

“RESURGENCE,” COMPETITION PRESS, STEVEN COLE SMITH, JUNE 3 Thanks folks for the article in this week’s Autoweek about American Flat Track. I accidentally stumbled on the NBCSN coverage of this series two years ago and was hooked the first time I saw it. As an older reader, I remember motorcycles racing on dirt in the ’60s and am pleased to see AFT grow. The competition is strong, and the wheel-to-wheel racing is some of the best I have seen in motorsports. For years, I had been a NASCAR fan but left when all the gimmicks started being put in place. AFT has NASCAR beat by a big margin. The fact that it’s on dirt only adds to the appeal. —DON IMMEKUS, WAUKESHA, WISCONSIN “RIDE TO LIVE,” COMPETITION PRESS, AL PEARCE, MAY 6 I enjoyed…
