Title Race One of Many Intriguing Storylines in Season Finale at St. Petersburg

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The showdown between Scott Dixon and Josef Newgarden for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES championship will reach a thrilling climax at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on Sunday, Oct. 25. Dixon leads Newgarden by 32 points and must finish ninth or better in the No. Meanwhile, Dixon’s best finish in the same span is eighth in the second Harvest GP race. But New Zealand driver Dixon has finished 10th or lower this season in just three of 13 races this season. One exciting subplot that will involve every team and driver, not just Dixon and Newgarden, is that the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg is the first and only street-circuit race of the season. While most eyeballs will be focused on the race for the drivers’ championship this weekend, the INDYCAR Manufacturers Championship also is on the line at St. Petersburg.
