Latest IndyCar News and Commentary

IndyCar Toronto GP postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
Demoralized. That’s how I’d feel, if I were Josef Newgarden, Alexander Rossi, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Will Power, or any other Verizon IndyCar championship aspirant, after taking inventory following this weekend’s Honda Indy Toronto. Because once again, Scott Dixon, had a somewhat slow start to the IndyCar season. Once again, Dixon has not been what you would call dominant. But once again, Dixon has made a charge during the middle of the season to bring himself into title contention.

  IndyCar on the streets
Sporadic light rain showers and the resulting ever-changing track conditions threw constant challenges at Verizon IndyCar Series teams and drivers today in qualifying for Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto. Penske Chevy driver Josef Newgarden took pole position by being the last driver to cross the line on a drying track with a lap of 59.496s. That was enough to take pole from Scott Dixon who was on a really fast lap but a wet section caught him out, the backend stepped out and he ended up 2nd.

IndyCar Toronto Preview
  Streets of Toronto's Exhibition Place this weekend
The IndyCars have been racing on the streets of Toronto, Canada for 33 years. 2018 will be #34. Michael Andretti has the most wins at the track with seven as a driver and he aims to see one of his Andretti Autosport drivers in victory lane on Sunday. Out to stop them is Team Penske with their special shock package no one else has. Penske driver Josef Newgarden won the race in 2017. Who do you pick to win in 2018?
IndyCar Iowa Corn 300 Postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
Let’s face it: entering this weekend’s Iowa Corn 300 it had been a miserable season for James Hinchcliffe. This miserable season of course had been highlighted by Hinchcliffe’s failure to qualify for the Indianapolis 500, and the arguably embarrassing fashion in which it occurred. The qualifying failure was from a certain standpoint just one of the blights on the 2018 resume for the self-proclaimed of Mayor of his own Cybertown.

Hinchcliffe outduels Newgarden to win in Iowa
  Iowa Corn 300 IndyCar race
Josef Newgarden led the most laps of the race (229) but with 45 laps to go James Hinchcliffe's SPM Honda passed Newgarden's Penske Chevy and pulled away to win the Iowa Corn 300 IndyCar race. Spencer Pigot and Takuma Sato finished 2nd and 3rd but that is because Newgarden gambled on a late caution and pitted for new tires but that was the wrong call. Newgarden came home 4th and Robert Wickens rounded out the top-5.

Simon Pagenaud in the Menards Penske Chevy will start third and Alexander Rossi's Napa Andretti Honda rounds out the top-5.
