Paddock Buzz: Power Steamed after Crash Avoiding Teammate

Sunday’s spotlight will be on Josef Newgarden as he tries to win the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 presented by Axalta and Valvoline for the fourth consecutive year and bids to sweep the five oval trophies offered in this NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. McLaughlin participated in the late-evening high-line practice after the 60-minute regular practice. “Unfortunately, I had to go off (line) and got into the wall,” Power said. McLaughlin said the spin “was my own fault” as he tried to gain as much speed as possible on his out lap. “You try and look for every little bit on your in and out lap. Ericsson, who finished the session with the ninth-fastest lap (178.040 mph), said there was nothing he could do to avoid hitting Power’s No. And then there is McLaughlin’s motivation to win Sunday’s race. McLaughlin has finished second three times with a pair of third-place finishes. McLaughlin was second at 179.953 mph with Power fourth in the No.
