Friday afternoon kicks off an exciting three-day weekend of racing action that will settle the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series championship at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.
Current series points leader Josef Newgarden enters this weekend with a 41-point lead over second-place Alexander Rossi.
However, with double points awarded this weekend, Rossi, along with Simon Pagenaud (-42) and Scott Dixon (-85) will also have the opportunity to win the championship in Sunday’s 90-lap race (2:30 p.m. ET on NBC).
There will be little room for error for all four contenders this weekend. Even the slightest mistake could make or break a driver’s chances of hoisting the Astor Cup.
Any driver looking to win it all this weekend will want to show speed in every session, starting with practice 1 this afternoon on NBC Sports Gold.
Leigh Diffey, Paul Tracy and Townsend Bell will call today’s on-track action from the booth, while Marty Snider, Jon Beekhuis, Kevin Lee and Robin Miller will report from the pits.
