Can Indycar top yesterday’s race? Some attribute the great racing to the weather conditions. Today’s high is expected to be 64 degrees. race time temperature should be around 61 with partly cloudy skies. No rain is in the forecast.
Temperatures for qualifying will be in the low 50s.
From last night:
Harvest Grand Prix Race 1- Quick Thoughts
This is an important day for Scott Dixon. He needs to regain some momentum back and try to extend his points lead over Josef Newgarden. The lead has shrunk from 116 points going into Mid Ohio to just 40 after yesterday.
Can Rinus VeeKay continue to be a factor today? He should be fun to watch.
Indycar, Chevy, and Honda have a major announcement at 11:50 this morning regarding the new hybrid engine.
I’ll be back after qualifying with a quick report. Enjoy the day.
