The NTT IndyCar Series is racing just outside of St. Louis this weekend at World Wide Technology Raceway Gateway.
The last oval race of the season, tonight’s Bommarito Auto Motive Group promises to bring plenty of high-speed, high-stakes racing action under the lights.
Series point leader Josef Newgarden will start tonight’s race from the pole position, with Sebastian Bourdais starting alongside him in row one.
By winning the pole, Newgarden gained an additional championship point, which extends his lead over Alexander Rossi to 36 points.
Rossi start’s tonight’s race from the 11th position after an uncharacteristically poor qualifying run for the No. 27 team, while Simon Pagenaud (third in the standings, 41 points behind) will start from the fourth position and Scott Dixon (fourth in the standings, 53 points behind) will start from eighth.
Here is today’s schedule:
