UPDATE Lap 75, 85 laps to go. We are approaching the 1/2-way mark of the 1,000km race and the IndyCar drivers have gone down 1.5 laps on the 3.75-mile circuit.

Running 25th out of 26 cars, the IndyCar drivers are finally getting a little quicker having a lot of race laps under the belt now. Now they are only 2.1-seconds per lap slower than the leaders.

Progress, but still getting schooled.

10/12/19 With 48 laps completed and 112 still to run, the IndyCar drivers have now gone 2 minutes down to the leaders as the gap continues to grow at 2.5 sec. per lap.

The leading #17 Penske Ford will be lapping the IndyCar drivers in 2 to 3 laps. Unless there is a caution, that won't be the only lap the IndyCar regulars go down as they continue to get schooled running 24th out of 26 cars.
