WATCH LIVE: Honda Indy Toronto on NBCSN and Live Extra from 2pm ET


The Verizon IndyCar Series heads north of the border this weekend for the Honda Indy Toronto, marking the end of a gruelling run of back-to-back weekends that has stretched all the way from the beginning of May.

In qualifying on Saturday, defending champion Will Power stormed to his fifth Verizon P1 Award of the 2015 season, securing himself pole position for the race start on Sunday.

However, with Penske teammate Simon Pagenaud starting second and title rival Juan Pablo Montoya lurking just behind in third place, Power will face a tough challenge to clinch his second win of the season in Toronto.

With rain falling in Toronto in the lead-up to the race start, we look poised for another chaotic event on Sunday following a string on wet-weather sessions at the start of the 2015 season.

Power currently trails Montoya by over 30 points at the top of the IndyCar drivers’ championship, and is without a podium finish in his last three races. However, the Australian now has a perfect opportunity to strike back in Toronto starting from pole.

With seven different winners in the opening nine races, there is every chance that we could see an eighth today given that Simon Pagenaud, Helio Castroneves (pictured) and Tony Kanaan are all yet to pay a visit to victory lane.

As the championship begins to enter the home stretch, the ever-unpredictable Honda Indy Toronto is sure to be a thrilling and exciting event, with the green flag set to be shown at 3:08pm ET.
