A Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Show all 8 episodes. I think this is about right. I've got to say though now that Power has seemed to lose his qualifying dominance this season, he is going to be in a world of trouble unless he can improve his passing on restarts. To be fair, he did just have a bad inner ear infection that caused him to miss the St.

Petersburg race and may still be affected from that. Oddly, Mulford won every year from inclusive earning a grand total of 19 wins making him one of the most dominant winners of the decade, but failed to win in the season, which was the only one that actually counted for points. Hence, Mulford is officially listed as having zero wins but despite that he is without question the greatest driver to never win a points-paying IndyCar race. While he never won at Indianapolis although some people think he really won the first race in , he was a prolific winner on every other type of track surface, sweeping a three-race stretch on a beach course at Galveston in , winning nine times on board ovals mostly late in the decade, winning once on a concrete oval in Providence in , and winning three times on road courses, and also three times on dirt tracks.

Mulford was dominant everywhere and even his Indy record was good with six top tens in his 12 races including the 2nd in the inaugural and a 3rd in the shortened event. However, he wasn't exactly a dominant force at Indy as the ten laps he led there in were the only laps he led ever. Regardless, with a career average percent led of His relative lack of performance in the high-prestige races such as Indianapolis compared to his dominance everywhere else against smaller fields does cause him to take a hit in terms of adjusted wins and adjusted points per race, but Mulford's career will naturally be ignored by people who just look at the Indy win list, the official championship list, and the official win list, but his dominance is too important to be overlooked even if none of the races he won endured or officially counted for points.

Whichever, before Dario Franchitti, there was Dario Resta, a two-year wonder who was probably even more dominant in his peak than Franchitti was but didn't match Franchitti's longevity. Resta looks better than many of his contemporaries historically especially because his championship season of was the only season in that decade that actually counted for championship points.

The Brit by way of Italy may have only won ten races, but he specialized in the biggest ones with the deepest fields. Resta won at Indianapolis in and thoroughly dominated the race, although the race was unusually scheduled for only miles because the officials thought a shorter race might draw greater fan support; nonetheless this is still considered part of Indy continuity.

Resta however DID win the first mile race not at Indianapolis at a board oval in Chicago in along with three very important road course wins. He won the American Grand Prize, a seven-hour race in San Francisco on his debut in , and followed it up with a Vanderbilt Cup win at the same venue in the next race. He then repeated his Vanderbilt Cup win the following season as well. With six wins on board ovals, three wins on road courses, and a win at Indianapolis, he showed staggering versatility for such a short career, and even in his later years, though he failed to win he continued to impress, scoring three 2nd place finishes and three 3rd place finishes in his six starts, all on board tracks.

In his late career he changed his nationality once more to become a naturalized American, but would not win again. Sadly, he was killed in a crash at the Brooklands road course in England while attempting to set a speed record. Regardless, although he would only be a major threat in two seasons, he was one of the most dominant drivers of the s and the fact that his average points per race is greater than his points per race for that period is simply astonishing since the s had below-average competitive depth.

I would say no. Tracy, the Indy Lights champion and at the time the most dominant driver in Indy Lights history until Greg Moore broke those records in , had big shoes to fill when he was named as Rick Mears's full-time replacement in the middle of the season at Penske. He exploded into dominance in when he won five races and led the series in average percent led but was not even close to Nigel Mansell in terms of consistency and finished behind his teammate Emerson Fittipaldi in the points as well. The definitive moment of Tracy's career would likely be the Phoenix race in when he dominated from start until crashing with a two lap lead with barely ten laps remaining.

He practically could have coasted but he continued to drive so hard to lap cars he had already lapped that he lost it and crashed, eventually handing the year-old Mario Andretti his last win. While he would show the ability to dominate everywhere until except high-speed ovals, which were his big weakness , he could also drive so hard even when nowhere in contention that he could do something stupid everywhere as well. Few drivers were more polarizing in their results or in their fan reactions. The next weekend, he'd be Jimmy Spencer. In , Tracy was clearly more dominant than the aging Fittipaldi but Fittipaldi was a lot more smooth and a lot more consistent, and still got the points.

However, when Al Unser, Jr. He wanted Tracy to move to an inferior satellite operation in Hogan Racing but Tracy refused and instead signed a big-money deal with Newman-Haas Racing, where he won one more race than teammate Michael Andretti but finished slightly behind him in points, which given Andretti's recent dominance for Newman-Haas, showed even more potential for Tracy. Now with more bargaining clout, he returned to Penske for and demanded and got Unser's salary. However Penske's Penske-Mercedes-Goodyear package was nowhere near as competitive as the Reynard-Honda-Firestone package and the team as a whole struggled for the rest of the decade.

Tracy did amazingly despite the inferior package win three consecutive races and dominate the first half of the season, but a typical long string of DNFs to end the season and Tracy trying to demand Penske change to the superior package led to a surprisingly quiet firing from Penske. Tracy moved on to Team KOOL Green for where he was expected to be the dominant driver but was vastly outperformed by his until-then career-winless teammate Dario Franchitti, who beat him four out of five seasons in points, with Tracy only beating him in when Franchitti had a pre-season concussion.

The driver once seen as the next big superstar seemingly became more famous for his on-track incidents than his domination in this period, particularly when he nearly took out Franchitti but instead wrecked himself at Houston in while they battled for the lead, which led an irate Barry Green to say "You deserved that! After a string of other bizarre incidents, including wrecking Al Unser, Jr.

He crossed over to compete in the Indy , where he had never led or even finished before that, along with most of the other CART stars in and came back from a very poor starting position to challenge for the lead late, but he passed Helio Castroneves a few seconds after a crash with two laps remaining, and the IRL ruled that the pass occurred just after instead of just before the caution. Tracy was such an outspoken opponent arguing he had been robbed of the win that he refused to compete in the IRL until Champ Car and IndyCar reunited, called the IRL cars 'crapwagons' which endeared him to the dwindling number of Champ Car fans who remained loyal, but led to him generally competing against weaker and weaker competition.

He moved to Champ Car hardliner Gerry Forsythe's team from and dominated the season as he was the only driver with any kind of great recent experience, but ROTY Sebastien Bourdais easily dominated the remaining seasons with Tracy slowly getting less and less competitive, and Tracy's overdue but only championship came against a pretty weak split field.

To some degree Tracy feels like a career compiler because there are few seasons you can point at and say he was the best, and he was usually outperformed by teammates.

Grin and Bare It

Combining his very diverse record with the fact that almost every season a mixture of greatness and stupidity, he's not a top ten driver but he was a great one. In a very short career, Aitken actually only started the race twice in , when he started 4th due to filing of ihs entry blank, not speed, but took the lead on the very first lap in race history, and , when he won the pole but failed to finish. However, in the short races of miles he was almost unmatched, and he swept a set of three races on the Indy oval called the Harvest Auto Racing Classic; these were the last IndyCar races held on the oval besides the Indy However, unlike some of the other dominant drivers of the early years at IMS like Ray Harroun and Joe Dawson, Aitken had a substantial and diverse career outside Indianapolis as well.
