2018 Verizon IndyCar Series - Desert Diamond West Valley Casino Phoenix GP

The ISM Raceway in the state of Arizona has became a battleground for the world's best drivers in the second leg of this season's Verizon IndyCar Series and in this race, it has become one heck of a wild west shootout among the best in this oval track.

Here's what happened so far; points leader Sebastien Bourdais maintained his lead in the first 43 laps until the IndyCar debutante, Pietro Fittipaldi collided with the wall at turn 4. Bourdais and Alexander Rossi got slapped with penalties due to pit stop mishaps. Following the pit lane mistake, Will Power leads the race until pitting problems while rookie driver Matheus Leist only secured three new tyres resulting to a major mistake that dragged him to 19th place finish. Lap 153 sees an unlucky night for Power as his Chevrolet drifted out of the groove and into the turn 2 wall.

This race has been quite of a risky gamble for some and in the end, last year's IndyCar champ Josef Newgarden takes the checkered flag followed by Robert Wickens and Alexander Rossi.
