Toronto IndyCar: Newgarden tops raceday warm-up

Newgarden, the 26-year-old from Nashville, won his second Honda Indy Toronto on Sunday, leading the final 58 of 85 laps. We were the slowest, Andretti Autosport cars.

Meanwhile, after a rough day at Iowa, less than ten points separate current Verizon IndyCar Series points leader Scott Dixon from second-place Helio Castroneves. But the Honda's of Rossi, Hinchcliffe and Andretti ended up in the top four by race end.

Former F1 driver Max Chilton sustained a late challenge from Castroneves to secure seventh, with Graham Rahal ninth and championship leader Scott Dixon in 10th. The Frenchman is returning to the race track in a mentorship role for Dale Coyne Racing just two months after a crash during qualifying for the Indy 500. Finally, through prodding by friends of his parents, he was taken to several Thursday night modified stock auto races on the old quarter-mile dirt track that was in the infield of the one-mile oval -and he was hooked.The first Milwaukee Mile event that he attended was the 1959 Rex Mays Classic won by Johnny Thomson in the pink Racing Associates lay-down Offy built by the legendary Lujie Lesovsky. "Very, very happy for all of Team Penske". He planned to use this season "to experiment", before deciding on his future.

Team Penske's Josef Newgarden claimed his second victory of the 2017 season and his second at Toronto over the past three seasons. "I'm enjoying it more than I expected". "But if we've gone in the wrong direction, which is easy to do when the field is this competitive, we can fall back on that other set up that was reliable from previous year". He wasn't particularly enamored with Formula E (which will be racing through the streets of Montreal in two weeks), although he was quick to say that he thinks the series has potential.

"It's great to see him back, can't wait to see him in a vehicle", he said. It's an electric auto and the whole electric concept is about saving energy, so it's a different kind of racing. You can't sit back too much but you have to make sure you stay out of incidences.

Gutierrez says he is getting more comfortable in the Coyne vehicle.

"If I see something, then I'll try and help, and if I don't, then I'll just shut up and see what happens", Bourdais said Thursday.

"Even Friday I remember sitting in the auto in pit lane, looking up at the stands (thinking) 'Man this is a Friday, this is really impressive, '" he added.

The Verizon IndyCar Series is in the United States' neighbor to the north this weekend, as drivers are set to compete in Sunday's Honda Indy Toronto.

"I mean the guy has five (career) wins and he's been on pole at Indianapolis, he's competitive all the time". Kevin Lacroix will go off third.
