Fearless (and mostly wrong) Predictions for 2018

Please remember to check out my new column on wildfireadiosports.com tomorrow morning.  I will be posting there most Fridays and maintaining this blog on either Tuesday or Thursday. The post should be up between 6-6:30 am. I have some track to get to.

The IndyCar season is finally here. It has been one of the busiest off seasons in a long time. It was great to see all the positive news, but it doesn’t replace seeing cars on track. We get some answers this weekend to some questions that remain: How will the new aero package race? Will there be more passing? Can a smaller team fight for the title? Will the longer braking zones make racing better? We should know the answer by turn 1 Sunday.

Here are my predictions for the season, subject to change of course.

St. Pete- Graham Rahal

Indianapolis 500- Will Power

IndyCar season champion- Alexander Rossi

Rookie of the year- Zach Veach

Number of race winners- 10

. Back tomorrow with a qualifying summary. Enjoy the race. It’s great to have IndyCar back.
