The Sunday NBC Sports Honda Indy Toronto video recap

6 Comments

As ever, there were a lot of video tidbits and clips from an IZOD IndyCar Series race weekend, and Sunday’s second race of the Honda Indy Toronto doubleheader was no different. See the clips from Sunday’s race linked below (and Saturday race and post-race clips linked as well).

From the pre-race show, this was INDYCAR president of competition and operations Derrick Walker explaining how and why Dario Franchitti’s post-race penalty issued Saturday was later rescinded.

Josef Newgarden continued to be quickest around Road America, first this morning and again this afternoon in the second practice session for Sunday’s KOHLER Grand Prix.

Newgarden had a best lap in the second session of 1:42.6279, followed by rookie Robert Wickens (1:42.9025), Sebastien Bourdais (1:43.0020), Will Power (1:43.0545) and teammate Simon Pagenaud (1:43.1599).

Sixth through 10th were Graham Rahal (1:43.1995), Scott Dixon (1:43.4212), Ryan Hunter-Reay (1:43.4755), Takuma Sato (1:43.5410) and Marco Andretti (1:43.6221).

One significant incident of note occurred during the session when Alfonso Celis Jr., making his IndyCar debut this weekend, lost control coming out of a turn and slammed into the tire wall, causing damage to his suspension.

The third and final practice session of the weekend will be Saturday at Noon E.T., followed by qualifying later in the afternoon.

The race will take the green flag on Sunday shortly after 1 p.m. ET. It will be televised live on NBCSN.
