IndyCar Series: Newgarden wins again at the streets of Toronto
Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden wins the Honda Indy Toronto, the 12th round of the 2017 IndyCar Series. It’s the second win of the season for a driver of the #2 Chevrolet and his fifth win in a career. He already won in Toronto two years ago.
After leading for 58 of 85 laps at the streets of Toronto, Newgarden has won the race with 1.8704-second advantage over Alexander Rossi (Andretti Herta Autosport with Curb-Agajanian) and James Hinchliffe (Schmidt Peterson Motorsports). Two more Andretti drivers finished among top 6 – Marco Andretti fourth and Ryan Hunter-Reay sixth. The polesitter Simon Pagenaud (Team Penske) finished between them in the fifth place.
Max Chilton (Chip Ganassi Racing), Helio Castroneves (Team Penske), Graham Rahal (RLL Racing) and Scott Dixon (Chip Ganassi Racing) completed the top 10. The championship leader Scott Dixon collided with Will Power on the opening lap. Power retired, Dixon was able to continue the race and to defend his championship lead. After twelve races, he had just three points more than second-placed Helio Castroneves.
The next IndyCar Series race is the Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 30.
