As Newgarden predicted, championship pressure is on

Eighteen days ago, Josef Newgarden spoke prophetically about the season finale at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and the championship to be won there.
“You could have a 60-point lead going in there and you still have to have a pretty good day,” Josef Newgarden said before qualifying at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway.
Josef Newgarden: “To me, (the championship) is still wide open, mainly because of double points.”
The season finale is 12 days away now, and Newgarden doesn’t have a 60-point lead, nor does he feel comfy.
Simon Pagenaud, Newgarden’s teammate, is 44 points behind.
Newgarden needs 63 points to clinch his second championship in three years.
