That was quite a bold move Alexander Rossi made to take the lead over Colton Herta. Then an F 1 race broke out.
Rossi did what he needed to get done today- f inish ahead of Josef Newgarden and Cut into the lead as much as possible.. The gap is down to seven points.
Dixon is not quite out of the points race, but he is edging closer to waiting another year for title number 6.
There was great racing and action in position three through six most of the day.
Will Power and Newgarden knew they had nothing for Rossi. Power said, “I never saw Rossi all day. A yellow or rain might have helped.”
Newgarden was satisfied that he got all he could out of the car and third was the best they could do.
Simon Pagenaud had an impressive drive finishing ninth after starting 16th.
Dixon made a great comeback for a top five after spinning on the opening lap.
Turn five was a very busy, action packed area today.
Santino Ferrucci finished a lap down, the third lap he hasn’t completed this season.
Rossi has now won the three crown jewels of Indycar circuits- Long Beach, Indianapolis, and Road America.
Look for my full report on Wildfire Sports tomorrow. I will also have a Road America postscript with photos in this space Tuesday. Thanks for following along this weekend.
