Newgarden leads Toronto warmup as weather concerns loom

All the while the one championship contender who benefited the most was Josef Newgarden - who courtesy of Team Penske president and his race strategist Tim Cindric managed to pit just before the yellow - promptly leapfrogged the field by pitting right before the yellow came out.

The race is Sunday.

He quit after the lap.

"I went down the outside of Scott and I don't know if someone was on the inside of him (but) he moved out pretty quickly", said Power, who claimed his third of four wins for 2016 in Toronto. "The days we get lucky and win a race, just take them".

Alexander Rossi was second for his first podium finish of the year and James Hinchcliffe was third. He leads Helio Castroneves by three with five races left.

Marco Andretti was fourth, followed by pole-sitter Pagenaud, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Max Chilton, Castroneves, Rahal and series leader Dixon.

Josef Newgarden seized the lead - and a win - thanks to fortunate pit stop timing at the Honda Indy Toronto.

"As we always say at Andretti, when one vehicle finishes, one auto is doing well, kind of all cars rise".

Psy no longer has most-watched video on YouTube
However, its reign as YouTube's most-played video may end soon as there is another contender for the YouTube throne. Whilst Olympic fever swept the nation, a little song you may have heard of called " Gangnam Style " was released.

Michael Andretti has won here seven times from 1989-2001, while the now defunct Newman-Haas team also won seven races from 1989-2004.

Who will win? Let's start with Team Penske. Like I said, there's a lot of really good guys in this championship. "Going with set-up basics which brought us those two wins in Detroit gives us reason to be confident heading to Toronto as hopefully it works out like it did in Detroit". "We'll have to see what we can do", said Daly, mindful that weather could wreak havoc.

Pagenaud said that the Toronto track's difficulty makes it the most important place to qualify well. You guys are the best.

"It's a track that Scott Dixon excels at", Tracy said. He was the top American racer on the circuit, joining Will Power and Graham Rahal as the only drivers to have multiple IndyCar victories this year.

Although the rain played a factor into how Newgarden and his Penske crew strategized for the race, he says this victory feels a little bit easier than his last one in Toronto.

Being in a coaching position is nothing new for Bourdais, but it's never come at the expense of him being sidelined.

"I think we had the strongest auto today", he said. He finished fifth at the season-opener in St. Pete, and he was robbed of a good finish at Long Beach when his auto lost power. After the 100-miler Gohde got the winner's autograph in the pits, something he couldn't do when he saw Hank Aaron hit a home run at County Stadium, and, again, he was hooked.Paul began attending the Indianapolis 500 in 1961, and saw A. J. Foyt's first Indy win. Dixon is gunning for what would be a record-setting fifth IndyCar title, while Castroneves is fighting for his first in what many have begun to speculate is his previous year in IndyCar.
