Newgarden edges Rossi to win in Toronto

Newgarden edges Rossi to win in Toronto

IndyCar series leader Scott Dixon enjoyed an encouraging day's practice at the Toronto street race round, clocking the third-quickest time. The Frenchman set a track-record time of 58.9124 seconds Saturday during the final round.

Hinchcliffe admitted his team made a tire tactical error during Saturday's first round of qualifying that put them behind the pack and in danger of starting no better than 14th. "Obviously, Helio (Castroneves) has been on a tear this year and I need some poles in order to catch up on that competition. But if we've gone in the wrong direction, which is easy to do when the field is this competitive, we can fall back on that other set up that was reliable from a year ago". "We've been struggling a little bit, to be honest".

Takuma Sato signs autographs before the race at Iowa Speedway last weekend. Power darted outside to avoid Dixon entering turn three after Dixon appeared to go sideways.

The race remains without a Canadian victor since 1993, when Toronto native Paul Tracy captured the checkered flag on the streets surrounding Exhibition Place.

"Unless I get in the auto in testing and call it quits because I'm not ready, the plan is to do Watkins and Sonoma", Bourdais said of the final two races of the season. I just feel bad for my guys.

DEFENDING champion, Australia's Will Power, has crashed out on the opening lap of the Toronto IndyCar race, after hitting Kiwi Scott Dixon's auto.

Newgarden's words there about consistency provide an interesting setup to the final five races of the year, and how the championship in this year where it seems anyone can win it, consistency over this stretch will come into play.

James Hinchcliffe finished third in his hometown race for the second straight year.

Two incidents in earlier qualifying rounds affected drivers Esteban Gutierrez and JR Hildebrand.

Hinchcliffe's result was his third podium finish on a road course this season. The driver from Oakville, Ont., earned his first podium finish in Toronto past year. "You're just trying to save your life and give it everything you've got".

"We were catching Alex and Josef in that last stint", Hinchcliffe said. "We'll have to see what we can do", said Daly, mindful that weather could wreak havoc.

Newgarden actually got two lucky breaks. Schmidt Peterson Motorsports said Aleshin will be at Toronto this weekend supporting the team, but weren't providing any more details.

"Coming off the best start and best finish previous year we wanted to build on that", he said. "We got it right".

"It's just hard work". The Canadian driver has not enjoyed a ton of success on the streets of Toronto - his third-place finish past year is his only top five in seven attempts - but there's reason to believe he'll contend for the win.

Gutierrez crashed near the end of the first round, hitting the wall on the straightaway to the finish line.
