Back on track: Drivers hail IndyCar return to Road America

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) — Wearing shades and a white firesuit that gleamed under a bright sun, Mario Andretti hopped out of the car after taking a few spins around Road America.

For a moment, it looked as if the IndyCar great, and the series itself, had never left this rural Wisconsin road course.

Andretti, 76, is still retired. But the open-wheel series is back.

The Kohler Grand Prix on Sunday marks the return of IndyCar at Road America for the first time since 2007.

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. (AP) — Sebastien Bourdais speaks reverently about the Le Mans 24 Race in his native France, as if some mythical force has a hand in the competition.

"I don't know what's the criteria ... All I can tell you is Le Mans picks its winner," Bourdais said.

If that's the case, this year, the race finally picked him.
