Post Race: Honda Indy Toronto

Sunday saw the Honda Indy Toronto begin under wet conditions, allowing Will Power to charge off in the lead, closely followed by Simon Pagenaud. Soon a dry line appeared on track and, as he did in Detroit, Marco Andretti was the first to make the switch to dry tyres.

However, ultimately strategy allowed the two CFH Racing cars of Josef Newgarden and Luca Filippi to claim a 1-2 for the team ahead of Helio Castroneves who finished third. The win for Newgarden means he joins Dixon and Juan Pablo Montoya as a two time winner this season.

The three main title contenders going into the race were Juan Pablo Montoya, Will Power and Scott Dixon. Will Power was the most successful of the trio, finishing in fourth, whilst Montoya managed to finished seventh, ahead of Dixon, who finished in eighth.

IndyCar has a week’s break before heading to Fontana for the MAVTV 500.
