IndyCar Pocono Postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
In early June, it had all the makings of a runaway snooze fest. By mid-July there was some faint hope someone might be able to mount a late-season charge. Fast-forward to Monday afternoon after Will Power won the ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway, and make no mistake: the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series championship battle is on. And it’s layered with more drama and intrigue than it seems many suspect. Today, AutoRacing1 will discuss those stories and more in our Pocono Postscript, starting with the man who clings to a slim lead in the series standings.

Ferrari Looking for Strong Results
  by Steven Cole Smith
Virginia International Raceway has been kind to Ferrari in recent years. Will that hold true for this weekend’s Michelin GT Challenge at VIR? Those who race for the Prancing Horse brand certainly hope so. “Our Ferrari should be quick here, if it is dry,” said Rick Mayer, race engineer for the Risi Competizione No. 62 Ferrari 488 GTLM team, with drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Toni Vilander. “We have had good race cars the last three years and won this race two of the last three years. But the competition is fierce. The current Balance of Performance puts us in the best comparative power position this year. But is it enough?”

A debut in Central America: In 2016 the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) will be held for the first time in Mexico City. When Porsche enters the 919 Hybrid into the fifth round of the WEC on September 1st to 3rd this also means a return. Back in 1954, a class win at the famous road race "Carrera Panamericana" proved to be groundbreaking for the company. From the late 50ies until the early 70ies, the Mexican brothers, Ricardo and Pedro Rodriguez, celebrated successes with Porsche. Up to the 90ies, the Porsche 962 C raced at the "Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez"

It was the 29th career and fourth victory of 2016 for the driver of the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet.

  by Pete McCole

In a race that seemed like it would never end, Kevin Harvick took the checkered flag in Sunday’s rain-delayed Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway. Harvick passed race leader Denny Hamlin with 71 laps to go and hung on through one final red-flag for rain with 49 laps to go to beat out Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. by nearly two seconds for his second win of the season and second-career Bristol victory.

Crutchlow charges through to make history
  The first British win in 35 years
After a torrential rain during the Moto2 race at the Automotodrom Brno, it was the turn of the MotoGP machines to head out as the rain was just starting to stop – leaving the prospect of a flag-to-flag hanging over the race. In the end it wasn’t to be, and it was Cal Crutchlow (LCR Honda) who sliced through the field in one of the most spectacular victories in recent years, taking the flag to become the first British winner for 35 years.
