This past Sunday at Milwaukee, Will Power took a giant step towards his first-ever Verizon IndyCar Series Championship. But this thing is far from over. The double-points race at the season finale at Fontana throws a whole new kink into things.

Random Thoughts On Milwaukee

A couple of weeks ago, I drew the ire of more than a few when I said this was a championship that no one seemed to want. Of course, I was exaggerating at the time. Why would a driver not want to win the championship? But at that time, no one was emerging as a clear-cut front-runner. That is no longer the case.

This has been a tough week all the way around. Hollywood has seen the death of a couple of legends, civil unrest in the heartland and the tragic story of what took place in upstate New York last Saturday night. I think we could all use a lift this weekend. I can’t think of a better way to chase the blues away than this weekend’s Milwaukee IndyFest.

The other night on Trackside, Curt Cavin threw out a stat that caught me by surprise. In this current field of twenty-two full-time drivers, only five have never won a Verizon IndyCar Series race – Josef Newgarden, Mikhail Aleshin, Carlos Muñoz, Jack Hawksworth and Sebastian Saavedra. He and Kevin Lee were speculating who might be the next to get their first win. They both seemed to think it might be Muñoz. My money is on Newgarden. He now has two second-place finishes in his short career. This past Sunday was just another race where Newgarden has been knocking on the door.

With no Verizon IndyCar Series race this weekend, we fans are going to have to be content with rehashing last week’s race at Mid-Ohio for a few days. While I enjoyed Sunday’s race – many have made it clear that they did not. They maintain that fuel conservation should not be part of racing.

Random Thoughts On Mid-Ohio

Two weeks ago, I summed up the Toronto weekend with one word – exhausting. If I am to sum up yesterday’s win by Scott Dixon at Mid-Ohio in one word, that word would be – incredible. The fact that Dixon won a Verizon IndyCar race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course isn’t incredible. After all, he had won two of the past three and four of the last seven going into the weekend – so he obviously knew his way around the place. But it’s the way he won yesterday’s race that makes this one so special.
