Latest IndyCar News and Commentary

IndyCar Iowa Preview
  Iowa 300
Last year, 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. 

Can Hinchcliffe win again?

Pagenaud holds off Dixon to win IndyCar Toronto race
  Rossi beats Newgarden for 4th
Before what appeared to be a sellout crowd, polesitter Simon Pagenaud grabbed the lead in his Penske Chevy at the start of the Honda Indy Toronto, and except for pit stops, led all the way to win the 85-lap IndyCar race on the bumpy streets around Exhibition Place, his third win of the year. Last year's winner Scott Dixon drove a rather lonely race to finish a distant 2nd while Andretti Honda ace Alexander Rossi did what he had to do and held off points leader Josef Newgarden (Penske Chevy) for third.

Pagenaud takes pole for Honda Indy Toronto
  Nips Dixon and Rosenqvist
Team Penske's Simon Pagenaud has won the pole for the Honda Indy Toronto with a time of 58.429s in Q3 qualifying to beat Ganassi Honda driver Scott Dixon last year's winner. Dixon spun out just past the finish line and he sat there while the other drivers finished their runs.  IndyCar did not throw a red flag so he may not lose his fast lap of 58.595s. Dixon's teammate Felix Rosenqvist was third quick followed by Alexander Rossi, Josef Newgarden and Ed Jones.

IndyCar Drivers Disagree on Push-To-Pass
  by Lucille Dust
As the IndyCar series heads across the border to Toronto, Ontario for the Hondy Indy Toronto this weekend, the teams have been working on race strategy for the narrow temporary street course at Exhibition Place.  Part of that strategy will be fuel mileage, execution of pit stops in the tricky S shaped pit lane and when to use the 200 seconds of push-to-pass (P2P) that is allowed for this race.

  This coming weekend
Last year it was shaping up to be defending champion Josef Newgarden’s day. The two-time winner at the Honda Toronto Indy had a third title in his sights Sunday, but on Turn 11 of lap 33, the American hit the wall, allowing Scott Dixon to overtake him for the lead and win the race. Dixon of New Zealand finished the 85-lap course on the streets surrounding Exhibition Place first, with Simon Pagenaud of France in second and Robert Wickens, from Guelph, Ont., taking part in his first race on Canadian soil in more than a decade, in third
How Alex Rossi's biggest career decision will play out
  by Mark C.
Alexander Rossi has the biggest career decision of his life coming up as his current contract with Andretti Autosport expires at the end of this year. There have been many articles written about whether he will stay with Andretti, move to Team Penske, or possibly even move elsewhere. There are a lot of scenarios on how this may play out and Rossi's decision will determine whether IndyCar has an active Silly Season or a mundane one because, if he does not move, there won't be a lot of movement. We lay it out for you in a simple to follow decision flow diagram.
Dixon tests IndyCar Aeroscreen prototype in simulator
  Just Halo portion, not windscreen
Five-time NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon took part Tuesday morning in the next step of the development of the Aeroscreen driver safety innovation with a simulator test of a prototype at the U.S.-based Dallara Research Center. The simulator test of a prototype manufactured by Roush Creative Services comes less than six weeks after INDYCAR announced its ongoing partnership with Red Bull Advanced Technologies to fully design the Aeroscreen concept for enhanced driver cockpit protection. The Aeroscreen is scheduled to be implemented for the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season
Rossi defers to God for biggest career decision
  by Brian Carroccio
You don’t need much analysis from me. Alexander Rossi drilled the field in this past weekend’s REV Group Grand Prix at Road America, finishing 28.4 seconds ahead of second-place Will Power. The win capped a 7-race stretch dating back to Long Beach, in which Rossi has won twice and finished second three times. And let’s face it: the actual record probably doesn’t do Rossi’s recent performance justice. We examine Rossi's next move and try to answer just who God is.
