About the Indy Pro Series and This Site
This site is not an official Indy Pro Series anymore since the last races took place in 2007. First season happened in 2002 and it was called Infiniti Pro Series. It took a few seasons before the race were renamed to Indy Pro Series. It was called Indy Pro Series from 2006 to 2007.
Infiniti Pro Series does not exist anymore. Now it is called Indycar Series.
This site was created just as a tribute for this awesome event. In my opinion, it is one of the most exciting race car events of this century. It had everything - speed, adrenaline and required professional skills from drivers. I hope the information gathered and published here will be engaging. Good reading and checking!
P.S. Check videos section too. There are some footage from some races. It's nice to remember.
