Hinchcliffe considers racing to NASCAR

17 July 2017

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

Power, who won his third Toronto race previous year after a decision to pit on Lap 58 worked to his advantage, said that the concrete is very slippery but driveable.

Dixon was forced to make up for lost time after hitting Australia's Will Power on the third corner of the opening lap and pitting with a puncture.

That's how you could rate Scott Dixon at Iowa last week, a race in which he started towards the back and never was a factor. Will Power grabbed the one-lap qualifying record (2016, 107.564 mph) and race record (2016, 85-laps, 88.739 mph), while winning both the Pole and Race past year. He won the Grand Prix of Long Beach in April and was third in the first of two races at the Detroit Grand Prix in June.

"We were really at the bottom of the barrel, staring into the bottom of the barrel, I guess, Friday afternoon", Rossi admitted after Sunday's race.

In the short span of a lap , Hamilton did his best to pull away from the pack but it would all come undone on a few moments later. The two jockeyed for position which led to some great wheel to wheel racing by the two drivers .

Sunday's race seemed to be an all-around accomplishment for the four Andretti cars.

"It's been a long time coming, looking for that first podium and hopefully it can be a foundation to go into more wins", Rossi said. Will Power is a three-time Toronto victor and is the reigning champion.

The changes in 2016 were the first the circuit had seen since 1996, and the third overall since the first time the race was run in 1986. "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 past year".

Hometown favorite James Hinchcliffe qualified sixth for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports.

At 10.49, another man was reported to have had a corrosive substance thrown in his face by two men on a scooter in Islington. They threw a corrosive liquid in his face and one of them stole his vehicle before driving off together, police said .

"So, here I am", said Gutierrez, who started his racing career driving for an F-BMW team from Toronto. He also has seven top-5 finishes.

Dixon, the championship leader by eight points over Castroneves entering the weekend, pitted for repairs and rejoined the fight, but was quickly issued a penalty after the No. 9 NTT Data team did more work than was allowed in the closed pits.

"Last year I was the one that won that competition".

The win puts Newgarden in the championship hunt as he is now just 23 points behind Dixon.

"I think that is twice I have had good calls and got into the pits at the right time", Newgarden said. "... A lot of varying concrete, asphalt".

Still, Dixon rejoined the fight without losing a lap, while Power's No. 12 Verizon Penske team pushed his vehicle behind the wall for repairs. Newgarden won this race two years ago.
