About hearing protection

Permanent hearing loss occurs from prolonged exposure to sound levels higher than 85 dB. Levels are about 115 dB when you're about 10 feet from a race car. If you attend the race, wear earplugs (they're available at the track) or sound-blocking earmuffs, available at hardware and sporting goods stores.

What you'll see today

Pro Mazda

The next step down from Indy Lights, this series, with 260-horsepower engines, has a doubleheader this weekend. This used to be called Star Mazda. The series opened March 2 in Austin, Texas, with Diego Ferreira and Matthew Brabham each winning half of a doubleheader.


The first step on the Road to Indy ladder. These cars produce about 170 horsepower. Scott Hargrove and Neil Alberico each won last weekend in the season-opening doubleheader at Sebring.

Pirelli World Challenge

The sports car series returns with an opening doubleheader featuring cars that produce from 425-525 horsepower. There are four classes: Grand Touring, Grand Touring Sport, Touring Car and Touring Car B-Spec.

  3. Joey Knight's takeaways from USF-Tulane


    1. Saturday's triumph will do little to fortify USF's strength of schedule, but its strength-of-character quotient might have increased. On the road facing an eclectic offense, the Bulls built a huge lead, then made critical plays in the waning moments after some defensive lapses. In short, they survived. Isn't …
