Newgarden Needs Big Weekend in INDYCAR Harvest GP To Continue Title Run

If Josef Newgarden is to cut into Scott Dixon’s 72-point lead in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES standings and win a second straight season championship, he will need to make significant headway in this weekend’s INDYCAR Harvest GP presented by GMR on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. Dixon finished second in this year’s Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge and won the 2008 “500.” Newgarden’s best Indy 500 finish is third, in 2016. Newgarden believes that persistence will one day pay off, and he will win a race at IMS. “It changes it massively,” Newgarden said of not having another double-points race this season. Through the first 11 races, he has finished outside of the top 10 just twice. “We could have had four or five wins by now, and it could have been a different fight, but we find ourselves 72 points back with three races to go. We’re still going to go for it and maximize every race.
