2019 Toronto: IndyCar Race - Driver Quotes


JOSEF NEWGARDEN (No. 2 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet): "It has been a tough weekend - hasn't been my strongest weekend, for sure. I had a flat hit against the wall in Turn 11 there with a handful (of laps) to go. I was smelling blood on (Alexander) Rossi a little bit and trying to get another position. But I think I sealed our fate on the No. 2 car in qualifying. Starting fifth was tough. When a race goes green like that, where you are is where you are going to finish. You can make some up in the pit stops, but we just didn't have enough today to overhaul Rossi and (Scott) Dixon. That was my goal coming into today, was trying to get up to second. We knew that if Simon (Pagenaud) had a clean start, that he was going to be tough to beat. Getting on the podium was our goal. But for having a tough weekend and to finish fourth isn't a bad thing. The Hitachi car looked good and felt good. It just wasn't enough. And thanks to Chevy. They gave us a good package this weekend and that's how we fought so hard."

2019 Toronto: IndyCar Race Results - Pagenaud, Penske Win!


By Mike Sulka

Simon Pagenaud and his No. 22 Team Penske Chevrolet IndyCar has won the Honda Indy Toronto. For Pagenaud, it is his third win of the year, and 14th of his IndyCar career.

Scott Dixon and his No. 9 Ganassi Honda IndyCar would finish second. For Dixon, it is his sixth podium of the year, and 111th major open-wheel podium of his career.

In third, Alexander Rossi and his No. 27 Andretti Autosport Honda would have just enough fuel. For Rossi, it is his sixth podium of the season, and 18th of his career.

Josef Newgarden and his No. 2 Team Penske Chevrolet would finish fourth despite a hard hit against the wall late in the race.

Felix Rosenqvist would round out the top-five finishers.

Recap

Welcome to the jungle. The Toronto streets started off cleanly with Simon Pagenaud leading from Pole over Scott Dixon. But midway through the opening lap Will Power would dive to the inside of Graham Rahal and spear his IndyCar with a hopeless challenge. A number of other avoiding cars would be slowed by the move: Matheus Leist, Marcus Ericsson, Ryan Hunter-Reay, and Marco Andretti. Safety Car #1

It was back to green flag racing on Lap 5. Pagenaud would lead, Dixon, Alexander Rossi, Felix Rosenqvist and Ed Jones would follow. Rossi would be the first of the leaders to stop on Lap 17. Rosenqvist and Jones would follow on the next lap. Pagenaud and Dixon would stop one lap later.

Pagenaud would take the lead back on Lap 25 - some drivers were on an alternate strategy. Zach Veach, Santino Ferrucci, Rahal, and Hunter-Reay would follow.

By Lap 35, Dixon would run 4.6 second behind Pagenaud with Rossi in tow. Newgarden and Sato would run third and fourth.

Pitstops would begin again on Lap 52 with Rossi moving back up to third. Pagenaud would lead by six seconds over Dixon, Rossi would run 12 back. By Lap 60, Dixon would close to within a second of Pagenaud. Rossi would run nine seconds back.

Sato's top-five run would end with a fire at the rear of his Rahal Letterman Lanigan IndyCar with 17 laps to go.

Pagenaud would lead with 10 to go, followed by Dixon, Rossi, Newgarden, and Felix Rosenqvist. Dixon would continue to follow Pagenaud around between half a second to 1.5 seconds.

Congratulations to Simon Pagenaud and Team Penske for winning the Honda Indy Toronto.

Next up, the IndyCar series will head to Iowa on Saturday.

2019 Toronto: IndyCar Qualifying Results - Pagenaud claims second Toronto pole in three years


As Team Penske driver Simon Pagenaud completed what proved to be a pole-winning lap in Saturday's Honda Indy Toronto qualifying session at Exhibition Place, NTT IndyCar Series rivals were sliding off pace.

Alexander Rossi of Andretti Autosport bounced off the outside wall in Turn 6, and Chip Ganassi Racing's Scott Dixon spun early in his final timed lap. Neither probably had the speed to match Pagenaud, but it made for an adventurous watch in the Firestone Fast Six qualifying session.

"Yeah, that was a pole run right there, man," Dixon joked before fessing up. "I'd only done two corners, so I have no idea."

With a lap of 58.4293 seconds, 110.041 mph, on the 11-turn, 1.786-mile temporary downtown street circuit, the result was Pagenaud's second pole of the season the 12th career top qualifying position for the driver of the No. 22 DXC Technology Chevrolet. In May, Pagenaud won the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge from the pole.

Pagenaud will lead the field to the green flag for Sunday's 85-lap Honda Indy Toronto (3 p.m. ET, TV: NBC Sports Network, Radio: Advance Auto Parts INDYCAR Radio Network, SiriusXM Radio, Channel 209).

"It was a great day, really," Pagenaud said. "Great weekend so far. I've had the most fun ever in Toronto. The car has just been amazing. The engine, Chevrolet, provided us a bit of an update this weekend and I think it's really showing. I think the horsepower down Lake Shore (Boulevard) really helped to get pole. But also, just tying every corner so well together.

"It's so exciting in the car. I just had so much fun just being on the limit and finding further limits every lap. It was just a great lap. We really put down a big lap and I'm really proud for the DXC Technology people that are here this weekend. It's a big event for them and I love this track, so it's great to really be able to kick it to the next gear for the end of the championship."

Pagenaud had the fastest lap in each of the three practices here, but he respected the potential of Rossi, Dixon and others to knock him off his perch.

"At the end of qualifying, everybody goes out to the maximum limit, so obviously the lap times get closer and closer and closer," he said.

Pagenaud stopped short of saying the car's strength has made it a smooth ride this weekend, but he described the performance of the car as versatile and predictable. A driver can extract a lot of speed when those qualities exist in a car.

"It's honestly a pleasure to drive this weekend," Pagenaud said. "I'm having the most fun I've had in a long, long time."

Dixon, driver of the No. 9 PNC Bank Honda, earned the second starting position with a lap of 58.4293 seconds (109.730 mph). Rounding out the top five, respectively, were Chip Ganassi Racing rookie Felix Rosenqvist (58.6793 sec. / 109.572), Rossi (58.9215 / 109.121) and Team Penske's Josef Newgarden (59.3103 / 108.406).

Local favorite James Hinchcliffe will start 14th in the No. 5 Arrow Schmidt Motorsports Honda.

JOSEF NEWGARDEN (No. 2 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet): "I went for it in the Firestone Fast Six. I knew it was going to take a big lap and I just went for it. I was really aggressive in Turn 11 and got into the wall and bent the toe link. I went for it and tried to make it happen. Our Hitachi Chevrolet has been fast all weekend, it's just been difficult to get clean runs. Simon (Pagenaud) did a great job, he's been fast all weekend. We got a good starting spot. The top six is where you need to be, so now we can race. I think our race car is good. I just don't have enough data yet. It's good we have a warmup. That will help us. Just how strong are we gonna be? I just don't know yet."

MATHEUS LEIST (No. 4 ABC Supply AJ Foyt Racing Chevrolet): "It was a difficult day here at the track. I feel like we went through some stuff that we thought was going to work and it just didn't. Then for qualifying, we just didn't want to risk it all again and take big swings on the car, so we stuck to what we thought was OK and that's how we qualified. We also had a small problem before qualifying, my car wouldn't shift, so unfortunately, I didn't get to do two runs, but it is what it is. I think we didn't have the pace to advance even if we had done the second run, so let's work on the warmup tomorrow to try and figure out what's the best car for us for the race and go race."

2019 Toronto: IndyCar Friday Practice Results


Some drivers had more fun than others Friday on the challenging streets of Exhibition Place, where the opening day of NTT IndyCar Series practice for the Honda Indy Toronto was held.

Reigning Indianapolis 500 winner Simon Pagenaud was beaming following his posting of the day's fastest lap (59.8708 seconds). But the 11-turn, 1.786-mile temporary circuit is one of the most demanding of the 2019 season, and it gobbled up several drivers during Friday's two practices.

The trickiest corner today was Turn 11, where a small area of surface change contributed to black marks on the concrete barrier and yellow flags to halt the action. Will Power and Takuma Sato spun there, Josef Newgarden, Sato (a second time) and Alexander Rossi hit the wall.

Rossi also bounced off the Turn 9 wall in a separate incident. Fortunately, none of the damage was significant, although the right side of Sato's car required more work than time allowed Friday.

JOSEF NEWGARDEN (No. 2 Hitachi Team Penske Chevrolet): "It was kind of an up-and-down day. I think the Hitachi Chevy has a lot of potential. It seems like it's fast, but we just haven't extracted all of the speed out of it yet. We need to work on that tomorrow. That's why you have practice. From the team standpoint, I thought it was a flawless day. The guys always do a great job of executing, so we just need to get a little better overnight and refine everything and get ready for qualifying."

MATHEUS LEIST (No. 4 ABC Supply AJ Foyt Racing Chevrolet): "Difficult day at the track today. I think we didn't quite find the best set-up for the car, but the important thing is that we're going to work hard tonight and we're going to figure something out for tomorrow. Anyway, it's good to be back here. It's a nice city and a nice track. Let's see what we can do for tomorrow in qualifying."

Five-Time Ntt IndyCar Series Champion Dixon Tests Aeroscreen Prototype In Simulator


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.

The RBAT design, which will encompass the cockpit, consists of a ballistic Aeroscreen anchored by titanium framework, but Dixon's simulator test only utilized the framework produced by Roush in this collaborative safety effort. The framework mounts in three areas around the cockpit - the chassis centerline, two-rear side mounts and roll hoop integration - to provide enhanced load-bearing capabilities.

We, obviously, had a little bit of a gap there and Andretti Autosport and Alex (Rossi) did a great job today, so we'll go back to the drawing board. I think we need to work on our road course (performance), but good effort. Chevy still gave us a great package and having REV Group on this weekend was really nice, so we'll take a third for today."

Rossi's dominant win at Road America tightens points race

By Mike Sulka

Alexander Rossi and his No. 27 Andretti Autosport Honda has won the Grand Prix at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. For Rossi, it is his second win of the year, and seventh of his IndyCar career.

Will Power and his No. 12 Penske Chevrolet would grab his third podium of the year, and 73rd major open wheel podium of his career.

Josef Newgarden and his No. 2 Penske Chevrolet would hold off Graham Rahal for the final podium position. Newgarden now has six podiums for the season, and 27 for his IndyCar career.

Graham Rahal would finish fourth while Scott Dixon would overcome a first lap spin to finish fifth.

Recap

Colton Herta and his No. 88 would start from Pole, but Alexander Rossi would slide in behind him get a draft and pass Herta for the lead at Turn One. Herta would hold off Will Power. In Turn Five, Scott Dixon would get spun around but resume at the rear of the field. Dixon would get on the curb, and tapped slightly from behind by Ryan Hunter-Reay.

After three laps, Rossi would lead, Herta, Power, Graham Rahal and Josef Newgarden would follow.

On Lap 13, Herta would be the first to pit - having started on the scrub red Firestone tires. He'd slap on a pair of blacks, but the pitstop was slow due to a fuel issue. Newgarden would also stop for a fresh set of tires. Rossi, Power and Rahal would all stop the next time by.

On Lap 15, Newgarden would make an on-track pass for third to get past Rahal. The order after all the pitstops was Rossi, Power, Newgarden, Hinchcliffe and Rahal. By Lap 21, Dixon would move up the order to seventh following a tussle between Herta and Simon Pagenaud.

The second round of pitstops would start in earnest on Lap 28 with Newgarden, Hinchcliffe, Dixon, Herta all stopping. On the next lap, Rossi, Power and Rahal would all stop. Rossi entered with an 18 second lead. After all the stops, the order would be Rossi, Power, Newgarden, Hinchcliffe, and Rahal.

Rossi would stop for the last time on Lap 42 to ensure he wasn't caught out by an untimely yellow flag. Power, Newgarden, and Hinchcliffe would all follow suit. Rahal would get ahead of Hinchcliffe during the stops - fourth.

On the final lap, Dixon would get past Herta for fifth.

At the front, Alexander Rossi would complete his romp to victory by nearly 30 seconds.

Next up, the IndyCar series will head to Toronto in three weeks.

Colton Herta knocked on history's door in NTT IndyCar Series qualifying several times earlier this season. On Saturday, the rookie phenom broke through.

Nearly three months after becoming the youngest race winner in Indy car annals, Herta added youngest pole winner to a growing list of accomplishments. The Harding Steinbrenner Racing driver got the best of the field on Road America's challenging and lengthy permanent road course to take home the NTT P1 Award as the top qualifier for Sunday's REV Group Grand Prix presented by AMR.

In the Firestone Fast Six, the last of Saturday's three knockout qualifying rounds, Herta - 19 years, 83 days old - turned a lap of 1 minute, 42.9920 seconds (140.306 mph) in the No. 88 GESS Capstone Honda to win the pole. Herta is more than a year younger than Graham Rahal was when he won the pole for the St. Petersburg race in 2008 at 20 years, 90 days old.

JOSEF NEWGARDEN (No. 2 REV Group Team Penske Chevrolet): "I thought we were a third- or a fourth-place car. That is what it seemed like right from the get-go. I don't think we were as strong as these guys next to us. We didn't have a great Q3 lap, I think we could have maybe pipped Will, but that's maximum. We seemed stronger in the morning and seemed to suffer a little bit more in the heat this afternoon. But it's tough to get it right so we've got to work on the race now with where we're at. I think we're within striking distance of putting a good race together and that's what we're going to focus on. But it's been good having REV Group on our Chevrolet with us this weekend. Obviously they've got a great activation going with the first responders. Active first responders can come out to the track here for the weekend for free. So it's a very cool program and it's great to have them on our car and we'll try to do them proud tomorrow."

2019 Road America: IndyCar Practice Results - Rossi On Top!


Alexander Rossi and Will Power led an aggressive and adventurous day of practice on the opening of weekend activities for the REV Group Grand Prix presented by AMR.

Rossi's best lap of 1 minute, 43.1206 seconds (140.131 mph) in the second of three practice sessions held up as the fastest of any NTT IndyCar Series driver on Road America's 4.014-mile permanent road course. But it wasn't easy by any means. In-car cameras showed Rossi battling to maintain control of the No. 27 NAPA AUTO PARTS Honda, nearly sliding off track several times and bouncing into the air after running over curbing.
