Sunday’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES race at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course gave the Fourth of July weekend its first dose of fireworks. 29 PowerTap Honda), which like Grosjean in the Herta incident, drew an avoidable contact penalty from Race Control. Team tally: Herta finished 15th, DeFrancesco finished 17th, Rossi 19th and Grosjean 21st. Difficult as it is to believe, it has been three full years since the NTT INDYCAR SERIES raced in Toronto. Simon Pagenaud, who won the 2019 race, was still more than two years from leaving Team Penske for Meyer Shank Racing. As a history lesson, Pagenaud won that race from the pole; he also won the NTT P1 Award as the fastest qualifier in 2017. Power has won three races (2007, 2010 and 2016) and two poles, Newgarden won the race in 2015 and 2017.
