Indycar At Barber

The Series with perhaps the most surprising story line of the racing season so far - Sebastian Bourdais is your points leader after 2 Races. Shocked

And starting near the back of the field in both races. Pretty impressive, to say the least.

The fact that the had Francesco Dracone and Carlos Huertas a few years ago to what they have now is impressive enough, but the fact they are contending with the great lineup they have now is amazing. Two years ago I would have laughed if anyone said Dale Coyne racing would be a championship contender in a few years, and I'm pretty sure most people here can remember farther back (I know Coyne's team has been around for many years).

Given the engineering aspect of DCR and the fact most of the tracks are road/street courses and they have a Honda engine...Bourdais winning the title would not surprise me in the slightest. Now we saw Montoya lead the points the whole way in 2015 only to lose it at the last race.

So far, 1/3 the way through this race...

It's been pretty good so far. Very enjoyable. Loving the aggressiveness of these guys, and the strategy going into it. Hopefully it continues.

Also, Alonso at Barber this week checking out his future competition. Awesome sauce.

Well if you don't like Will Power I'd say this has been a strong start to the season Laughing

Annnnd we are back to status quo :lolpenskewins:

I like Newgarden, but absolutely hate Penske. Good win by Josef.

Also, as someone who dislikes Will Power, I am loving his bad luck this season (inb4 he wins next three races).

I feel bad for Will, he pretty much had that race. At the same time though, MY BOY JOSEF!

That was a fun race. Lot of adventurous overtaking. Got dramatic right at the end there with Power puncturing a tire, and the threat of rain. Dixon could've had Newgarden right at the end if he didn't use up so much of his car.

Even though he only finished eighth today, I've been watching Sebastien Bourdais through the first three races and I must say that I like his pace. Dale Coyne's had races where they're absolutely on it, but they've never had an entire season look so promising. This might be the year.

GW Newgarden. Shout-out to Alexander Rossi for his Top 5 run today.

Pretty good race. Newgarden gave the hype train the deliverance and held off Dixon in the end.
