This was a very entertaining race. There were battles for position, passing, and drama.If every Indycar race were like this one, I think fans would be happy.
Robert Wickens WILL win a race this year. I really thought it would be today. The pass he made to take the lead from Will Power was amazing. The pass he couldn’t quite pull off to regain the from Power was an equally incredible move. Yet, officially, we still have to call him a rookie.
Scott Dixon’s run from 18th to 2nd puts him back in the championship hunt. He jumps to 4th in the standings.
Power’s win is the 200th Indycar win for Roger Penske.
The cars seemed to race closer this year than in the past. Passing was not necessarily easier according to some drivers, cars were not strung out all over the track as in past races.
This race still has only two winners from two different teams.
I will have a full race report up tomorrow.
