2018 Verizon IndyCar Series - KOHLER Grand Prix

Elkhart's Road America comes alive at the KOHLER Grand Prix leg of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series as the world's best drivers are trying to navigate through the complex turns of Road America before charging themselves to the straight where every second matters in this race.

This year's KOHLER Grand Prix of Road America turned into a dirty race as some drivers off-track runs, which is unheard in INDYCAR standards. Robert Wickens settled to shove himself off-track because of the space occupied by Alexander Rossi while at Turn 6 while in later laps saw Takuma Sato nudged off-track during a heated battle with Wickens and Rossi. While some drivers faced mechanical issues during pit-stops, especially for Will Power, the climax sees Josef Newgarden, the Nashville-born hero of Team Penske, defended his lead against Ryan Hunter-Reay, who placed 2nd place, and Scott Dixon, who placed 3rd.

After a dirty Road America thriller, the overall standings saw Scott Dixon leading with 393 points while Ryan Hunter-Reay's tied with Rossi with 45 points behind Dixon's.


The next race is at Iowa Speedway for the Iowa Corn 300 on the 8th of July.
