Power second in Indycar Toronto practice

All Canadian James Hinchcliffe could do was smile as he was interrupted mid-answer.

Taking over the lead, Newgarden was able to keep a consistent gap to those chasing him for the remainder of the race, and finished 1.8 seconds clear of Rossi.

Hinchcliffe is aware of the dangers of being overwhelmed by obligations off the track. "We need to go better than that, but to start 16th and finish sixth that's a good day". "The last few years, we've taken a different approach and said no to a few things and not tried to do it all. I'm thankful to the team for that opportunity". With the pit lane being moved, and a tightening to Turns 9, 10 and 11 to accomodate Hotel X Toronto, drivers previous year were anxious about running out of room in some sections.

Expect Scott Dixon to return to the front.

Hinchcliffe's No. 5 auto for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports was 16th after the second practice session on Friday. He dealt with a loose vehicle all weekend.

Last weekend's race in Iowa, where Hinchcliffe finished 10th, was the 100th of his career, a milestone which he said is "pretty insane to think about". We pitted because we wanted to get clean air. This is more than nine drivers who raced in all five! Finally, through prodding by friends of his parents, he was taken to several Thursday night modified stock auto races on the old quarter-mile dirt track that was in the infield of the one-mile oval -and he was hooked.The first Milwaukee Mile event that he attended was the 1959 Rex Mays Classic won by Johnny Thomson in the pink Racing Associates lay-down Offy built by the legendary Lujie Lesovsky. He began covering races in 1965 for Racing Wheels newspaper in Vancouver, WA as a reporter/photographer and his first credentialed race was Jim Clark's historic Indy win.Paul has also done reporting, columns and photography for Midwest Racing News since the mid-sixties, with the 1967 Hoosier 100 being his first big race to report for them.He is a retired middle-grade teacher, an avid collector of vintage racing memorabilia, and a tour guide at Miller Park. And that screwed him. I think probably it felt a little bit easier than the first year when I had my first win here and the second win of my career.

"It's a street course". But there's reason to think he could deliver a top-10 result - or better.

Having previously won the Canadian race back in 2015, Newgarden has a good track record and was quick throughout the race, and benefitted from a well-timed caution to take the lead.

Sellers and McCarty each claimed his third win of the season at the.4-mile oval.

United insiders believe a bid from Real is imminent as the two clubs prepare to meet on their US tour in Santa Clara on July 23. He started his career at Atletico Madrid and a return back to the city could prove too difficult to turn down.

Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE:PG)
The Company operates through five segments: Beauty; Grooming; Health Care; Fabric & Home Care, and Baby, Feminine & Family Care. Following the transaction, the insider now directly owns 43,608 shares of the company's stock, valued at $3,808,722.72.

Meanwhile, Hildebrand teammate Spencer Pigot returns to the cockpit of the No. 20 auto after sitting out the oval at Iowa. Castroneves said the decision will be made by the team.

So every position and every point matters in the Honda Indy Toronto. "It was a good call at the right time". "... A lot of varying concrete, asphalt".

A longtime staple on the CART and Champ Car slate from the 1980s through unification in the late 2000s, the bumpy, tight 11-turn circuit presents a significant challenge to drivers on track and engineers seeking the right setup. Tracy also won the event in 1993. He finished fifth at the season-opener in St. Pete, and he was robbed of a good finish at Long Beach when his vehicle lost power. Saavedra finished 15th in the Indianapolis 500 for Juncos Racing.

"Iowa was tough", said Sato after his 16th-place finish there. All four Penske drivers - Josef Newgarden and Will Power are the others - were in the top five in one or both practice sessions.

One of them seemed like a lock to win, but it was Newgarden, starting seventh, who topped them all.

Takuma Sato signs autographs before the race at Iowa Speedway last weekend. Now this year he's 12th in the overall IndyCar standings. It was a huge blow for Power, who was running fast all weekend long and was fourth in the championship. Last year: Lewis Hamilton won the second of four consecutive races. Castroneves is coming off his best drive of the season, and counting out Simon Pagenaud on a street course is just plain foolish.

It's a struggle to pick the winning manufacturer, too.

Bourdais is in Toronto this weekend to help out his Dale Coyne Racing team and is in good spirits, all the more unbelievable considering the impact sustained when he lost control of the vehicle during Indy 500 qualifying.
