The first ARCA race has already taken place, so I suppose that I can't post that anymore.


Verizon IndyCar Series

First-time winners: Conor Daly (1), Mikhail Aleshin (1)
Most wins in a season: Josef Newgarden (3) (a bit bold perhaps, considering that his competition includes Dixon, Pagenaud, Power, etc.)
Upset of the year: Takuma Sato wins the pole for the 101st Indianapolis 500
Disappointments: Hildebrand doesn't achieve his first win despite performing very well throughout the season
Best race of 2017: Indianapolis 500 (winner: Charlie Kimball)
Worst race of 2017: GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma (winner: Scott Dixon)
Retirees at season end: (none)
Driver of the year: Hélio Castroneves, ending the winless streak with two victories and his elusive first championship; Honarable Mention goes to Ryan Hunter-Reay (who wins twice and finishes runner-up at Indianapolis)
Reject of the year: (I'm not really sure)
Most likely to lose ride in the middle of the season: Jones is most likely, but I'm going to predict that nobody will
Champion: Hélio Castroneves
Runner-up: Josef Newgarden
