2. Fans have ‘Prix View’ opportunity at Phoenix open test
3. Parnelli Jones documentary Q&A on Barrett-Jackson docket

1. Gateway Motorsports Park race gains title sponsor: The Bommarito Automotive Group, the leading retailer of new and used vehicles in the St. Louis region, has been named title sponsor of the Verizon IndyCar Series race at Gateway Motorsports Park scheduled for Aug. 26.

The Bommarito Automotive Group 500 will mark the return of Verizon IndyCar Series racing to the 1.25-mile oval in nearby Madison, Illinois, for the first time in 14 years. The event under the lights is the 15th of 17 races on this year’s schedule.

“We are pleased to announce that Bommarito Automotive Group will join Gateway Motorsports Park in the production of our inaugural INDYCAR event as the title sponsor,” said Curtis Francois, owner and CEO of Gateway Motorsports Park. “This is a tremendous event for the St. Louis region and no one knows our town better than the folks at Bommarito. They are a progressive group, known for a high standard of quality and excellence. It’s the same standard of on-track action and family-friendly experience that we look forward to delivering with our landmark event.”

Indy car races were run annually from 1997-2003 under CART and INDYCAR sanctioning, with the winners’ list a who’s who including Paul Tracy, Alex Zanardi, Michael Andretti, Juan Pablo Montoya, Al Unser Jr., Gil de Ferran and Helio Castroneves. This year’s race weekend will also include competition in the upper two levels of the Mazda Road to Indy presented by Cooper Tires development ladder: Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires and the Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires.

“We are excited to partner with Gateway Motorsports Park and the Verizon IndyCar Series,” said John Bommarito, president of Bommarito Automotive Group, which has served the area for 45 years. “When approached by Gateway about the return of INDYCAR to St. Louis, we felt it was important to have a major St. Louis company step forward and support the return of open-wheel racing to the region. We are extremely proud to be the title sponsor of the Bommarito Automotive Group 500.”

Gateway Motorsports Park is located just across the Mississippi River from downtown St. Louis. Ticket information for the Aug. 28-29 race weekend is available at gatewaymsp.com.

The track will not be open to the public for the first day of the open test on Feb. 10.

“The Prix View is an important testing opportunity for all the teams of the Verizon IndyCar Series to refine their approach to the championship before the season begins,” said Bryan Sperber, PIR president. “We are pleased to be able to open the track so fans can see firsthand the critical adjustments the teams are making in preparation for the Phoenix Grand Prix and the entire 2017 season schedule.”

3. Parnelli Jones documentary Q&A on Barrett-Jackson docket: A number of people involved with the documentary film “Behind the Indianapolis 500 with Parnelli Jones” will participate in a question-and-answer session Saturday during the annual famous Barrett-Jackson auto auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

PJ Jones, the son of the film’s namesake, executive producer Michael Walker and two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Arie Luyendyk will partake in the discussion that begins at noon MT at the Shell Pioneering Performance tent adjacent to the auction staging area. Longtime automotive program host Alan Taylor will moderate.

The panelists will discuss the documentary that explores the rich history and tradition of the Indianapolis 500 through the eyes of Parnelli Jones, the 1963 winner who annually returns to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the iconic event. Other greats interviewed for the film were Mario Andretti, Rick Mears, Bobby Unser, Bobby Rahal and Al Unser Jr.

The film may be purchased on DVD for $14.99 or instant streaming for $12.99 atAmazon.com.

Parnelli Jones, the oldest-living winner of the Indianapolis 500, has teamed with designer Troy Lee to produce 33 helmets, each signed by 19 Indianapolis 500 winners, including Andretti, Al Unser, Bobby Unser, Mears and Johnny Rutherford as well as current Verizon IndyCar Series stars Scott Dixon, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Tony Kanaan and Helio Castroneves.

Jones has also authorized the sale of 30 replica helmets from his own racing days. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of both helmets (which can purchased be for $8,500 for one or $15,000 for a pair (one of each) by contacting info@carbarnproductions.com) benefits the Page Jones Head Injury Foundation.

4. Thompson joins Canadian team for USF2000 season: Parker Thompson will return for another season in the Cooper Tires USF2000 Championship powered by Mazda as part of an all-Canadian effort from first-year entrant Exclusive Autosport in the lowest rung of the Mazda Road to Indy development ladder.

Thompson, who finished second in the USF2000 driver’s championship in 2016, will return to the team that helped launch his racing career in race cars piloting Exclusive Autosport’s No. 30 Mazda-powered Tatuus US-17.

“It has been a long time coming, signing Parker to a full-season program with Exclusive Autosport,” team co-owner Michael Duncalfe said. “I am especially excited that he will be one of our drivers, a series veteran, leading the EA program in our inaugural season in the USF2000 championship/MRTI. I have the utmost respect for not only Parker’s race craft, but also his work ethic on and off the track. I have never seen a driver work as hard as he does off the track on his racing program.”

Thompson, an 18-year-old from Red Deer, Alberta, last raced for the team in Formula Tour F1600 in 2015, sweeping a weekend of racing at Circuit ICAR in Mirabel, Quebec. Thompson drove in USF2000 for Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing in 2016, winning four races and finishing second to teammate Anthony Martin in the championship.

“This was easily one of the hardest offseasons I have had in my motorsport career, thus far,” said Thompson. “I honestly didn’t know if I was going to get behind the wheel of a race car in 2017, so when the opportunity arose to become a part of the EA organization, I was ecstatic.

“This is a dream team fit for myself, in a number of different ways. I met Michael when I was just 11 years old racing in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, at the Western Canadian Karting Championships. It just goes to show you what relationship-building can do for your career down the road.”

OSU women’s hockey team drops tough road decision at #4 Minnesota, 2-1

 

 

Muzerall makes return to Ridder Arena for first time as visiting coach

Box Score
Minneapolis, Minn.— Ohio State held a lead for much of the game, but two third period goals from Minnesota were the differences in Friday’s 2-1 loss to the Golden Gophers.

“I’m very proud of our team,” head coach Nadine Muzerall said after the game. ”They executed everything we’ve been practicing and everything we’ve been talking about on film. We just had a shorter bench and we were a little gassed. They did everything but it was just 10 minutes too long of a game.”

After a scoreless first period, Julianna Iafallo notched her fifth goal of the season to put Ohio State up 1-0. Maddy Field poked the puck free behind Minnesota’s net and it squirted out to Iafallo, who went stick side right by the goalie to give her team the lead. In that second period Minnesota peppered Kassidy Sauve with 18 shots, and the Buckeyes’ goaltender stopped every one of them

“She’s phenomenal,” Muzerall said of her goalie. “She’s an All-American, she’s fantastic. She’s been our backbone all year. It’s unfortunate how the first goal went it, that was uncharacteristic of her. But she kept us in the game. She controlled her rebounds and got whistles for us when we needed them. She played intelligently and composed.”

That first goal Muzerall reference came 10:48 into the third period and tied the game at 1-1. The Golden Gophers second goal came about six minutes later and gave them the lead for good.

In total Sauve stopped 31 shots on the night, over half of those coming in the second period. Ohio State recorded eight shots on goal, including Iafallo’s goal. On defense Jessica Dunne and Dani Sadek blocked four and three shots, respectively.

For Muzerall it was the first time she took in a hockey game as a visitor. She was an All-American for Minnesota and has won national championships as both a player and coach.

“That was actually really odd,” she said of returning to Ridder Arena. “There were a lot of emotions going through my mind, being a part of the inaugural program here and watching the growth and seeing the banners. I still have that pride in my heart for what my class and the girls that followed have accomplished. But that time’s over. I’m building a program at OSU.”

Tonight marked the third time this season that Ohio State scored first against Minnesota and, despite not coming away with victories in any of those games, there’s no doubt this team will be back on the ice tomorrow ready to compete.

“They don’t have any doubt in this team,” Muzerall said of her players. “They still believe, they’re going to come out firing and guns blazing because that’s who we are.”

These teams will face off again on Saturday at 3:07 p.m. ET
