Preview: Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey

There are two races remaining in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES’ 2021 season, and Sunday’s Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca likely comes down to the finish of one driver. Palou is bidding for his first series championship in just his second season. Dixon, who finished third in that race, made two starts at the track while in his first two INDYCAR seasons, finishing fourth in 2001 and sixth in 2002. He won three consecutive poles from 1997-99 and won the race in 1998 and 1999. He, too, is looking for his first win of the season. McLaughlin has been ahead of Grosjean in points since the completion of the season’s third race but stretched the advantage after a ninth-place finish at Portland. McLaughlin scored 84 points in the three races Grosjean wasn’t in. The final two race weekends of the 16-race season are three-day events, with the first of two 45-minute practices Friday at Laguna Seca at 5:30 p.m. (ET).
