Under the Hood
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Longtime motorsports announcer Paul Page will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Radio Network as its lead announcer next season.
Page served as the network's anchor voice from 1977 to 1987, taking over after the death of Sid Collins. He will anchor the network's coverage of all IndyCar races next season, including the marquee event, the Indianapolis 500.
In a statement, Page called the speedway his "first love" and said the best racing is in the IndyCar series.
Formula One News
WEEHAWKEN, N.J. (AP) — The promoter of a planned Formula One race in New Jersey says he's working to restructure the financing so the event can be held in 2015.
Leo Hindery Jr. said Wednesday he wants the race to take place as soon as possible. But he calls it a "huge undertaking" to build the road course without tapping public money while also meeting the sport's timing demands.
F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone said last month during the U.S. Grand Prix in Texas that the New Jersey race would not take place in 2014, though it had been on the provisional calendar for the year.
