The 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series presented by Kohler.

The Kohler Grand Prix at Road America was a huge success with great crowds enjoying beautiful weather at one of the World's great racing venues. Wonderful to hear that Road America will host the IndyCar race for the next 3 years. If you missed it this year put it on your calendar.
Following are some photos by long time photographer Ron Nelson.

NEWMAN/HAAS RACING

Newman/Haas Racing was an auto racing team that competed in the CART series and the IndyCar Series from 1983 to 2011. Newman/Haas was one of the most-successful teams in Indy car racing during the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s. The team won 105 CART/Champ Car races and eight season championships.
During the 1980s, and for the better part of the 1990s, the team was closely aligned with the Andretti family. In 1983, Mario Andretti signed as the primary driver, an arrangement that would carry Andretti through the remainder of his career, until his retirement in 1994. Michael Andretti joined the team from 1989–1992 and again from 1995-2000. Both Mario and Michael won a CART championship driving for the team. Newman/Haas is also notable as the team for which Nigel Mansell competed in CART, winning the 1993 title.
