After four years of abuse, perhaps it's time to take another look at the Indy Racing League, which is now the Indy Racing Northern Light Series. Buddy Lazier won the series title last weekend in Texas in a race that had everything Winston Cup race fans love - and sometimes can't get. Side-by-side racing, drafting and speeds that reached 210 mph. That's the way they raced through the entire Excite 500. And only 24 of the 208 laps were under caution....

INDIANAPOLIS -- Scott Goodyear is happy today, but yesterday he nearly went over the moon.He came within .043 of a second of winning the Indianapolis 500."I think if I had had another 100 yards, I could have beaten Al," said Goodyear."I think, if there had been another 100 yards, he probably would have beaten me," said Al Unser Jr., who was thankful the finish line was where it was. "I was loose coming out of Turn 4 and I feathered it a little, and Scott was all over me. He seemed to get a boost of power coming out of 4. It really might have been the difference, if we had to go any farther."

For the past several years, Scott Goodyear could have been considered "Baltimore's Driver" in the Indianapolis500. After all, he drove for Panther Racing, a team whose ownership group included then-Ravens quarterback Jim Harbaugh. Well, Harbaugh is no longer a Raven, but Goodyear is still driving, and he has actually set foot in Baltimore more than once - which is more than can be said for anyone else who is likely to make the field of 33 drivers that will be finalized today. So, a little visit with Goodyear seems in order.

NAZARETH, Pa. -- Mario Andretti looked at the starting lineup for today's All-Star Marlboro Challenge and winced. Fate had done him wrong."The year I had the most points by winning the most poles, they put all the names in the hat and made us draw for starting positions, and I drew last," Andretti recalled. "Now, I have the fewest poles, and they decide the starting lineup will be based on points from winning poles and races. And I'm almost last again."Is this any way to treat a motor sports icon?

Indianapolis -- When does speed outdistance reflexes? When is fast too fast? Is there a correlation between speed and danger?And could tragedy, such as that that has struck the Formula One series, happen here at Indianapolis Motor Speedway?They are simple questions with complicated answers.Formula One and Indy cars look pretty much the same to a casual observer. Because of that and because the motor sports community is so intertwined, concern over the recent string of serious accidents on the Formula One circuit extends to the IndyCar competitors, who are preparing for the Indianapolis 500 on May 29."

INDIANAPOLIS -- Michael Andretti still is looking for a perfect month of May.Yesterday, Andretti was dominating. By Lap 77, when he attempted to go around Mauricio Gugelmin, he already had led 41 laps.But coming into Turn 4, Andretti moved to the outside as Gugelmin slowed to enter pit road, and his car slid into the wall, taking a hard impact on the right front wheel."It was a move I've made a thousand times this month," Andretti said. "I passed him right where I've been passing all month.
