Q&A with Honda HPD boss Art St. Cyr
  At Sonoma

Today’s Honda Racing Media Availability at Sonoma Raceway with Art St. Cyr, president , Honda Performance Development. Seven victories so far in 2017, at least one from each Honda‑powered team, and a chance at the championship going into the final event underscores the strength of the Honda team and driver lineup, unlike Chevy which has Team Penske and the rest of the Chevys are backmarkers.

Visit to V12 Vineyards in Napa Valley
  by Lucille Dust
We are out in the beautiful hills of Napa Valley and Sonoma for the championship deciding final race for IndyCar series.  Nearly 90 percent of American wines come out of California, four percent of which can claim roots in the fertile hills of Napa Valley.  There are several hundred wineries in this area just an hour outside of San Francisco.  AR1 visited the V12 Winery in Napa and was quite surprised to see the owner, Jimmy Vasser, on property.

Watkins Glen IndyCar Postscript
  by Brian Carroccio

When Josef Newgarden won at Mid-Ohio last month in dominant fashion, and took over the series championship lead, I wrote that the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season became at that moment about the 26-year-old Hendersonville, TN native.  A product of the Skip Barber junior program, who took a detour to Europe, before returning to win the 2011 Indy Lights Series championship, and then paying his dues with smaller teams, Newgarden joined the almighty Team Penske for the 2017 season.
