  by Lucille Dust
It was a whirlwind weekend in Indy for the CART Alumni that attended the 3rd reunion. The weather was perfect, the atmosphere was much like the Friday night barbecues held after the first day of competition at the given track of the weekend.  Friendships were rekindled after years of not seeing with each other. Paul Leyton, president of the CART Reunions, sat down with me as the last people were leaving the Ganassi Race shop in Indy to discuss how he felt things went this weekend and the future plans for another reunion.
AR1 Ranks the Top-10 IndyCar drivers of 2018
  Mark C.

However, week-in and week-out it was hard to predict who would come out victorious, such is the quality of the current crop of drivers and teams in the top 2/3rds of the grid. While some publications do a subjective ranking of drivers for the year, removed all subjectivity, and based our ranking on pure performance.
