In 2003 the Italian chassis manufacturer Dallara Automobili debuted the IR-03 in the Indycar Series and retired the Third generation open-wheeler in 2011 as the last IR-05 crossed the finish line at the IZOD Indycar World Championship at Las Vegas.
On February 7, 2019 UCORA will be bringing that amazing automobile back to life as the new Throwback Indycar Series takes to the high banks of Homestead Speedway to kick off the inaugural Throwback Indycar Series.
A 20-race season will challenge its drivers across the most incredible race tracks that North America has to offer. They will pit their skills against one another as they battle side pod to side pod around the most iconic oval tracks and push their cars to the limits around the twisting, writhing corners of some of the most incredible road and street courses across the continent.
The first half of the Throwback Indycar Series comes to a close with a third victory for Brian Beard!
Chris Stofer climbed the standings from his 6th place starting place to finish second while Jeff Wubker continues his strong performance on the third step of the podium.
Track Temperatures in excess of 120 degrees turned the normally lightning fast Watkins Glen into a technical, challenging escapade that demanded constant attention to the throttle and a precise dedication to the racing line.
A lap one incident put the outside pole sitter and road course ringer, Jackson Freer, deep into a hole that he spent the remainder of the 44 laps clawing out of to finish ninth.
Brian Greenlee put forth a strong showing in his series debut despite a few missteps. His tenacity netted him an impressive fourth place finish on the day.
Rounding out the top 5 was Brandon Shown who improved his championship standing and moved up into the sixth spot for the season.
The Throwback Indycar Series returns to action on August 22nd under the lights at Gateway for the "Gateway to the West 200" on ESBN.
Chris Stofer becomes the second multi-race winner in the Throwback Indycar Series as he showed his consistency throughout the evening.
Pit Road mistakes plagued Travis Bennett as he led 74 laps but relinquished the top-running position during green-flag pit stops.
Brian Beard, the series only other multi-race winner, remained as consistent as Stofer and came home on the second step of the podium.
The Pit Road also proved troublesome for last week's winner, Erik Jeffers as the hard-charging driver had his work cut out for him after errors on pit road and a half-spin after a altercation with the apron. However in the end, he stood on the third step of the podium with a third place finish.
Championship leader Andy Yerk had a rough evening under the lights and walked away from the race seven laps down and a 7th place finish.
He was still atop the championship board after the challenging event.
Travis Bennett was able to shave 16 points off of Yerk's lead and move up from 3rd to 2nd place in the championship standings.
Stofer was 182 points behind Yerk in 4th place but was able to claw to within 144 with the win and secure third place in the standings.
The driver who lost the most ground in the Championship standings was Bart Workman who had registered for the race but failed to take the green flag.
That moved him down two places in the standings and he now resides in 4th place.
With one race remaining in the first half of the Throwback Indycar Series inaugural season, we continue to have new drivers registering for the league.
The final stop in the first half of the season will be the super-speedway of road courses Watkins Glen. The ever-popular course is sure to provide exciting racing and set up the second half of the season for an amazing climax.
UCORA is still accepting new drivers for the Throwback Indycar Series and, as they have throughout the year, will be awarding new drivers 40% of the current championship leader's points to get them involved in the points chase.
The Throwback Indycar Series Race number 8 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway had a bit of everything: Close racing; long, green-flag runs; strategy; and fuel mileage heartbreak.
But in the end, in only his second race in the series, Erik Jeffers prevailed on fuel strategy and outlasted Brian Beard and Bart Workman. He passed Chris Stofer in the closing laps to take the lead and held on to take his first win.
Stofer was forced to pit soon after the pass by Jeffers which put a damper on an otherwise brilliant Pit Road Start to leading the pack drive.
Travis Bennett continued his strong showing with his third podium finish in the last 4 races and 5 out of his 6 races in the series.
Taking the third step of the podium with his best finish since the season opener was Jeff Wubker with another strong showing in his second start in the series.
Brian Peele also had his best finish of Fourth Place since the Series Opener way back in February!
The 80-Lap race saw 2 cautions and a lot of great racing.
This series is evolving and growing into a massively fun experience for our drivers and we can't wait to see it grow further!
Brian Beard took on a Texas-Sized field (well... at least the largest field of our season at 17!) and came out on top for his second win of the season!
Brian will go down in the annals of UCORA lore as the first two-time winner in League history!
The Throwback Indycar Series drivers traveled to the historic, famous Milwaukee Mile and tackled their first short track not only of the season but in the short history of the series.
200 laps around the oldest operating race track proved to be eventful as the series saw a season-high number of cautions as the curbs reared their ugly heads and punished unwary drivers who tried to take too much liberty with them.
Travis Bennett overcame an early accident and worked his way back up through the field and put himself out front to take the top step of the podium!
Series newcomer Jeff Wubker made a splash in his debut and took the second step of the podium after the dust settled.
After a few tough races, series regular Bart Workman worked his way up to the third step of the podium and came home in 3rd place.
The series saw several newcomers this week as Jeff Wubker, Mark Nadeau, Steven Parks and Zach Neubauer took their first green flag with the series.
Steven Parks had several bad breaks and ended up behind the wall before the checkered flag fell while Mark Nadeau had several run-ins with the curbs that ended in several spins while Zach Neubauer had personal issues that came up before qualifying that forced his bowing out before the green flag fell.
The series is growing and seeing increased interest as it enjoys its second broadcasted race with eSBN.
Race 5 of 20 is in the books and Brian Beard takes home the win at Mid-Ohio!
It was a race of missteps where one toe placed over the line was the difference between holding onto the lead and watching a competitor slide by to inherit the top position.
Brian Beard, despite being put under unrelenting pressure by Jackson Freer in the final ten laps, kept his Dallara IR05 up front and took the checkered flag to win at the deceptively challenging Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.
Congratulations to Jackson Freer and Bart Workman for rounding out the top 3 and standing on the podium!
Kansas Speedway proved to be the most exciting race of the young season. Chris Stofer led the melee of the top group of drivers that included Travis Bennett and Tony Showen over the final ten laps to stay ahead of the scrap to take home the checkered flag.
Tony Showen takes advantage of a late-race restart to pass series newcomer Travis Bennett with only a handful of laps to go to take home the victory in Motegi!
Pit road miscues bite several drivers and shuffles the field throughout the day to spice up the running order after both green-flag stops to set up the final, hectic restart which occurred after contact between Andrew Peele and Christopher Shelton when Shelton made contact with the outside wall on the exit of Turn 4.
The largest field to date in the new Throwback Indycar Series shows the promising future for the series as the new driver registrations continue to arrive at the UCORA Offices.
Sebring International Raceway is a staple in auto racing. Its healthy technical mix of high-speed and tight corners is made even more challenging by the roughness of the track surface making every corner an exercise in throttle control.
Series newcomer Bart Workman tamed these challenges and led wire-to-wire to bring home the victory at the Throwback Indycar Series second race of the season.
Coming home on the second step of the podium was Michael Moorley who is also new to the series.
Rounding out the podium spots was league owner, Scott Bolster who made a rare series start. He battled back after technical issues forced his temporary retirement to the garage.
The series takes the show across the Pacific to the banks of the Twin-Ring Motegi Oval. The series lands in Japan on Thursday, March 7 for 200 miles around the slippery track.
