Open-Wheels was created in May 2012 to be a positive place for motorsport fans. The website continues to grow and provide articles covering the Verion IndyCar Series, Mazda Road to Indy, and other various series around the world. Open-Wheels is also a platform that drivers can use to gain experience writing articles and publishing videos so that as their career matures, they will be better prepared for roles with NBC Sports, ABC/ESPN, Racer Magazine and the USA Today. If you have a driver that needs to gain experience and exposure in either writing or video, please contact Tanner Watkins.
