If final practice is any indication, Team Penske appears poised to freeze Alexander Rossi out of any chance to win the IndyCar title. While Felix Rosenqvist turned the fastest lap in this session, the sandbagging Penske IndyCar team ran 2-3-4 in their Chevys led by points leader Josef Newgarden, Will Power and Simon Pagenaud. Their goal is to start 1-2-3 and let Rossi suck their fumes all race on Sunday. Without a win, and with Newgarden out front, Rossi will be left wondering how many titles and Indy 500s he might have won had he signed with Team Penske.

Rossi could only manage 10th quick in this session, so unless the Andretti boys are sandbagging, their cars are just too slow.

We will know in three short hours.
