Power, Pagenaud Lead Chevrolet with Top-Five Finishes in Season Finale

 

SONOMA, Calif. – Will Power’s 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series (VICS) season started slowly, but the 2014 champion’s midseason results – punctuated by sweeping the May races at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, including the 102nd Indianapolis 500 – continued with a strong closing effort.

 

Power, driver of the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, earned a third-place finish in the INDYCAR Grand Prix of Sonoma at Sonoma Raceway to lead Team Chevy drivers in the 85-lap season finale. Power, who has three victories at the racetrack in Sonoma, California, had qualified seventh.

 

With an effective off-sequence pit strategy, Simon Pagenaud drove the No. 22 DXC Technology Team Penske Chevrolet to fourth-place finish after qualifying eighth. The result was the second top-five finish in the past three races and fourth overall for Pagenaud, who secured the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series driver/entrant championship with a victory from the pole at Sonoma Raceway in the No. 22 Team Penske Chevrolet.

 

Chevrolet drivers collected six victories during the season, led by Power and 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series champion Josef Newgarden with three each. The veteran drivers also earned four poles each, while team owner/driver Ed Carpenter claimed the pole for the Indianapolis 500 in the No. 20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet.

 

Power finished third in the season standings, while Newgarden finished fifth and Pagenaud was sixth.

 

Newgarden, driving the No. 1 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, finished eighth on Sonoma Raceway’s 2.385-mile, 12-turn natural-terrain road course. Patricio O’Ward, the 2018 Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires champion, placed ninth in his Verizon IndyCar Series debut in the No. 8 Harding Group Chevrolet.

 

Other results for drivers backed by the 2.2-liter, twin turbocharged, direct-injected V-6 Chevrolet engine:

No. 14 Tony Kanaan        12th
No. 20 Jordan King          13th
No. 4 Matheus Leist         19th
No. 88 Colton Herta          20th
No. 59 Max Chilton           21st
No. 23 Charlie Kimball      22nd
No. 21 Spencer Pigot        24th

 

Kanaan, driving the No. 14 ABC Supply Chevrolet for AJ Foyt Racing, marked his 300th consecutive start. The record-extending streak started in June 2001 at Portland International Raceway. King, a first-year Verizon IndyCar Series driver in the No. 20 Fuzzy’s Vodka Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet, advanced 12 positions relative to his qualifying spot to lead all drivers.

 

Ryan Hunter-Reay was the race winner, with Scott Dixon finishing second and clinching his fifth Verizon IndyCar Series championship. Dixon drove to his 2015 title with Chevrolet power.

 

The 2019 season opener is scheduled for March 10 on the 1.8-mile temporary street circuit in St. Petersburg, Florida. The 17-race schedule includes new events March 24 at Circuit of the Americas in Texas and the Sept. 22season finale at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in California.

Newgarden, O’Ward Lead Chevrolet Qualifying at Sonoma

Reigning series champion to start third, rookie is fifth for season finale

 

SONOMA, Calif. – Reigning Verizon IndyCar Series (VICS) champion Josef Newgarden and 2018 Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires champion Patricio O’Ward will start the INDYCAR Grand Prix of Sonoma in the top three rows.

 

Newgarden qualified third with a quick lap of 1 minute, 17.7599 seconds (110.417 mph) in the No. 1 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet. O’Ward, making his Verizon IndyCar Series debut, gave Harding Racing its inaugural Firestone Fast Six appearance to close out its first full season of competition. He’ll start fifth after a best lap of 1:17.9737 (110.114) in the No. 8 Harding Group Chevrolet.

 

Newgarden and Team Penske teammate Will Power, who qualified seventh in the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, are mathematically eligible for the championship entering the double points season finale. Last year at Sonoma Raceway, Newgarden earned the pole and finished runner-up to Team Penske teammate Simon Pagenaud on the way to securing the title. Power is a three-time winner on the 2.385-mile, 12-turn natural-terrain road course.

 

Other qualifying results for drivers backed by the 2.2-liter, twin turbocharged, direct-injected V-6 Chevrolet engine:

No. 4 Matheus Leist           23rd

No. 23 Charlie Kimball       24th
No. 20 Jordan King            25th

 

Kanaan, driving the No. 14 ABC Supply Chevrolet for AJ Foyt Racing, will seek to make his Indy car record-extending 300th consecutive start. The streak started in June 2001 at Portland.

“Congratulations to Tony Kanaan for being the first Indy car driver to ever compete in 300 consecutive races,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. Vice President of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “His passion, preparation and determination have been key enablers to this milestone. It’s no surprise that Tony is such a huge fan favorite in the series.”

Ryan Hunter-Reay claimed the pole for the 85-lap race. Scott Dixon, Alexander Rossi, and Marco Andretti (all Honda) made up the remainder of the Firestone Fast Six drivers.

NBCSN will telecast the 85-lap/202.7-mile race live at 6:30 p.m. ET Sept. 16.The race will also be broadcast on INDYCAR Radio Network affiliates, RaceControl.IndyCar.com, indycarradio.com, the INDYCAR Mobile app, Sirius 214, and XM209.

CHEVY INDYCAR AT PORTLAND: Team Chevy Post Race Recap and Driver Quotes

POST RACE RECAP
SEPTEMBER 2, 2018

PORTLAND – The Verizon IndyCar Series return to Portland International Raceway started with a five-car accident in turn two of lap one with Team Chevy championship contenders Will Power (pole sitter) and Josef Newgarden ahead of it and in the clear.

On the restart following an extended yellow to clean up the debris, Will Power, No. 12 Verizon Team Penske, jumped to the lead and took command of the race. However, fate stepped in as the 2014 Series’ champion suffered a gear box issue that ultimately relegated him to the 21st finishing position. While mathematically still in contention for the title heading into the double-points season finale at Somona, it is a challenging scenario.

Newgarden, the defending IndyCar champion, also had a strong No. 1 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, but got caught out with more than10 fellow competitors with an ill-timed yellow at approximately the half way point of the race. Traffic was a challenge throughout the race and the defending champion had to settle for the 10th finishing position. He faces the same circumstances as Power in his attempt to repeat as the champion.

After a disappointing qualifying effort that netted him the 17th starting position, Spencer Pigot piloted his No. 21 Fuzzy’s Vodka Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet to a strong fourth place finish. It continues a string of strong runs for Pigot as the season winds to a close.

Four Team Chevy drivers finished in the top-10. In addition to Pigot and Newgarden, 2016 champion Simon Pagenaud, No. 22 Menards Team Penske Chevrolet, finished sixth and Charlie Kimball, No. 23 Tresiba Carlin Chevrolet, claimed the seventh finishing position.

Other Team Chevy finishers are:

No. 22 Simon Pagenaud, 6th
No. 23 Charlie Kimball, 7th
No. 1 Josef Newgarden, 10th
No. 14 Tony Kanaan, 11th
No. 88 Gabby Chaves, 13th
No. 4 Matheus Leist, 14th
No. 20 Jordan King, 15th
No. 32 Alfonso Celis, Jr., 17th
No. 59 Max Chilton, 18th
No. 12 Will Power, 21st

Takuma Sato was the race winner. Ryan Hunter-Reay and Sebastien Bourdais (all-three Honda drivers) completed the podium.

The 17th and final race of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season is set for Sunday, September 16 at Sonoma Raceway, just north of San Francisco, California.

DRIVER QUOTES:

SPENCER PIGOT, NO. 21 FUZZY’S VODKA ED CARPENTER RACING CHEVROLET, FINISHED 4THYOU WERE SUPER FAST IN PRACTICE AND HAD A BIT OF AN ISSUE IN QUALIFYING, BUT YOU CAME BACK TO FINISH FOURTH; A SOLID RESULT

“Yeah, absolutely. I’m really happy to end up fourth with the Fuzzy’s Vodka Chevrolet team. The start was kind of crazy. I found myself up in like seventh or eighth right after Turn 1, from 17th. So, that was a welcome surprise. After that, we had a few good stints and was able to pick a few guys here and there and then the yellows kind of fell for us. Right from the get-go, even on blacks, the car felt good. We had a lot of reds saved up and were able to put them to good use.”

SIMON PAGENAUD, NO. 22 MENARDS TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, FINISHED 6th: : 

“I think it was a fantastic recovery from the whole No. 22 Menards Chevrolet team. It was phenomenal, the strategy that we adopted. We got a little bit lucky with some yellows too, but before the yellows we came to the eighth position from 22nd, so really good job by all my guys. We still have some progress to make on the car, but overall from a tough qualifying day yesterday, we recovered really well and that’s what racing is about.”

CHARLIE KIMBALL, NO. 23 TRESIBA CARLIN CHEVROLET, FINISHED 7th“This Carlin team just doesn’t have any give up in them – they don’t know the meaning of the words. I’m proud of these guys, they just stayed with it all day. They worked the fuel strategy, gave me the fuel numbers and lap times that I needed, and we were able to get it with the car. We made a pretty significant change to the No. 23 Tresiba Chevrolet overnight and it really helped our pace throughout the race. I just can’t stress how proud I am of these guys. Yesterday was pretty frustrating and disheartening, but they didn’t let it slow them down today. We had great pit stops and a great strategy, so all I really had to do was drive it into the top 10.”

JOSEF NEWGARDEN, NO. 1 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, FINISHED 10th¨ “It was a tough day.  I don’t know what else to say.  We led some laps and I think we had a Verizon Chevrolet that was good enough to win it.  It just didn’t fall our way.  You can’t predect these INDYCAR races.  I wish we could get Lady Luck on our side one of these days.  It just seems to walk away from us as of late.  Dixon – he was able to take advantage of it today.  Those guys are having a great year and luck falls on their side.  Now, we will just go and try and win the season finale and do what we can.  I don’t think we have much of a shot at the championship.  We’ve given it a good effort here at Team Penske and you can’t ask much more out of the team.”

TONY KANAAN, NO. 14 ABC SUPPLY AJ FOYT RACING CHEVROLET, FINISHED 11thSome good points today in Portland. Apparently we had a gun issue during our pit stops that cost us time on the last two stops. I don’t think we had the pace that guys in front of us had but we managed to make some good passes, save fuel whenever we had to save fuel and almost got a top-10. After starting at the back of the pack, we’ll take it.” 

GABBY CHAVES, NO. 88 HARDING GROUP HARDING RACING CHEVROLET, FINISHED 13th:   “We had a clean race through the start and I managed to pick up a bunch of positions, running inside the top-ten for a good part of the day. We struggled a bit on the black tires, so we lost a few positions on track when we were running our stint. We still managed to be in a good contention for a top-ten finish. On the last restart, I had a good run on TK, he just didn’t give me any room and I ended up in the grass while trying to defend the next position. After that I had to give up that position as well. We have been improving the car all weekend and all year so although 13th is not fantastic, it shows progression, which is good.”

MATHEUS LEIST, NO. 4 ABC SUPPLY AJ FOYT RACING CHEVROLET, FINISHED 14th“Another tough race for the ABC Supply car. Today the first two stints were pretty good for us. I think we had the pace since the beginning and I think we could have finished in the top 10 for the first time this season but the yellow came  out  at the wrong time for us so we had to change strategy. It kind of screwed us a little bit. I think the most important thing is that we managed to develop and improve our road course car and I’m looking forward to Sonoma now. I think we did a great job here as a team. Each time we are on the track we are just getting closer to the other teams, getting a little bit faster.  We just have to keep working hard and I think our time is going to come sooner than we thought. Good job for Tony too, I think we still need to find some pace but we are going to get there eventually.”

JORDAN KING, NO. 20 FUZZY’S VODKA ED CARPENTER RACING CHEVROLET, FINISHED 15th:  “The race got off to a really solid start. I was overtaking people, shifting shapes, really cracking on. I had made it all the way up to P3 behind Alexander Rossi and was having good fun racing with him. Then the yellow came out and turned everything around. It was really unlucky timing as we were heading for a strong result. Fortunately we’ve got Sonoma in two week’s time so I’m looking forward to getting back in the car.”

ALFONSO CELIS, JR., NO. 32 JUNCOS RACING CHEVROLET, FINISHED 17th“The main goal was to finish and we completed that today. We had a good strategy going into the race. In the beginning I battled some issues with my radio, but I was able to fix it. I think I was also pushed out wide a couple of times so we lost some positions there. Overall I am happy with finishing on the lead lap. I want to thank the Juncos Racing crew for all of their hard work and my family and friends for being here to support me.”

MAX CHILTON, NO. 59 GALLAGHER CARLIN CHEVROLET, FINISHED 18th“All in all it was a really enjoyable day. We were racing hard and we were racing good guys. We had a great start at the green flag, great restarts, and we led that last restart well. We were able to keep Josef and Rossi behind us when they didn’t need to be fuel saving, so we had the pace. Strategy went our way at times, but when it really counted it just went completely against us. We were on for a top-seven finish all day and we weren’t up there just by luck. Unfortunately with how the strategy worked out and how the yellows fell it just wasn’t in the cards for us, but that’s racing.”

WILL POWER, NO. 12 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, FINISHED 21st“I think on the warm-up lap before the green, something happened to the gearbox.  It jumped to neutral, I went into emergency mode and made it go into gear and thought, ‘okay that’s alright.’  Then, coming out of the hairpin on the first restart, it popped into neutral again and everyone behind me went past. Then I realized I couldn’t use first gear. We were on a reasonable strategy and I made a mistake trying to keep Leist behind me.  Then the gearbox completely went. I’m not sure the gearbox would have made it the whole race anyway. But man, it’s a tough sport..  It’s too bad because it was actually going to be a reasonable day. We were on path for two stops, but that’s racing.  Now, we just go to Sonoma, have fun and win. And hopefully have a good day, have a good finish to the year.”

Power and Newgarden Give Chevy Front Row at Portland

Seventh Time in 2018 Season Pair of Bowtie Powered Drivers Lead Field to Green Flag

In pursuit of his second Verizon IndyCar Series championship, Power got the very valuable point for winning the Verizon P1 award in the Series’ return to the Oregon road course.  Power won the pole behind the wheel of his No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet with a blistering lap of 57.3467 seconds/123.292 mph.

Defending Series’ champion Josef Newgarden, No. 1 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, laid down a lap of 57.6877 seconds/122.563 mph to grab the second starting position and giving the Chevrolet 2.2 liter twin turbo charged direct injected V6 the front row for the seventh time this season.

No. 20 Jordan King                                     12th

No. 59 Max Chilton                                      15th

No. 21 Spencer Pigot                                  17th

WILL POWER CAPTURED HIS 4TH VERIZON P1 AWARD OF THE SEASON AND 54TH OF HIS CAREER.  JOSEF NEWGARDEN JOINS TEAMMATE ON FRONT ROW:

DRIVER QUOTES: 

WILL POWER, NO. 12 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, POLE WINNER: THIS IS YOUR FOURTH POLE THIS SEASON, AND 54TH IN YOUR CAREER.  HOW DIFFICULT WAS THAT FOR YOU GUYS?

“We actually were pretty good every session. I was just determined on focusing on what I had to focus on. I’m very stoked to get the pole. That was the focus coming in. Pole, win; pole win, and we can win the championship.”

YOU JUST WANT TO BE IN FRONT OF SCOTT DIXON NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS?

“Yeah, Dixon and (Alexander) Rossi, simply. If he finishes ahead of us tomorrow, Dixon, it’s over. It is. So, that’s what we’ve got in our head.”

HOW GOOD IS THE RACE CAR?

“I think it’s pretty good. The car has been fast all weekend. A qualifying car around here would work well.”

ARE THE REDS THE WAY TO GO IN TOMORROW’S RACE?

“Yeah, they are definitely faster. I think the reds are going to be key.”

JOSEF NEWGARDEN, NO. 1 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 2ND: ARE YOU HAPPY WITH WHERE YOU FINISHED?

“Yeah, second is great, you know? We’re on the front row, so we can’t be disappointed. I have a suspicion we’ve built a stronger race car, which is good for tomorrow but obviously we want to be good in qualifying. The guys did a good job. We were strong on blacks (tires) but we just couldn’t match it on reds. It seemed like we had the pace to beat everybody on the blacks, but red tires, I don’t think we had the set-up for that. Our Verizon car is quick. And we have the Penske cars one-two, so that’s good.”

IS THE RACE TOMORROW GOING TO BE A RED TIRE RACE?

“Yeah, I think so. I think we’ll probably see a lot of reds running tomorrow just because the tire is quicker.”

JORDAN KING, NO. 20 FUZZY’S VODKA ED CARPENTER RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 12TH“The first session, we did a good job and I was quite happy what the car. The track really changed between Rounds 1 and 2. I was two or three tenths slower than I did in the first session so I’m a bit annoyed. We should have been solidly inside the Top 10. The difference between blacks and reds seems quite big here, so it will be interesting to see who has a good car on what tire during the race. Portland is good fun!”

MAX CHILTON, NO. 59 GALLAGHER CARLIN CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 15TH  “It’s a very fast, challenging circuit and it’s such a short lap that it’s hard to avoid traffic even with the field split into two groups. We didn’t have the pace coming into qualifying today, so we went red, red for tires which we’ve done a few times before this season. I think that strategy has worked well for us, because it has put us a few places higher than we would’ve been otherwise. It’s so hard to overtake on this track, so the chance that anyone will move forward that much because they have an extra set of red tires is unlikely in my opinion. I feel like we made the right strategy call. We’ll keep working tonight and try to find a bit more speed in the No. 59 Gallagher Chevrolet for tomorrow’s race.”

SPENCER PIGOT, NO. 21 FUZZY’S VODKA ED CARPENTER RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 17TH:  “It’s frustrating, the car felt a little strange. It just really didn’t have the grip to lean on the fronts or the rears. I was just all over the place. We really didn’t change the car too much, so we’ll have to look at everything and see what we can do for tomorrow. We’ve been quick at points over the weekend, so hopefully we can get the car fast again for the race.”

MATHEUS LEIST, NO. 4 ABC SUPPLY AJ FOYT RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 19TH:  “Qualifying was difficult. We are just struggling a little bit with the car, we didn’t find a great pace in the setup. We have to keep working hard and try to make the right choices for tomorrow. We’re going to debrief tonight and see what we can do for tomorrow.”

GABBY CHAVES, NO. 88 HARDING GROUP HARDING RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 21ST“Frustrated with our qualifying session because we have had a pretty good car all weekend. We were just getting ready to open up our fastest lap and unfortunately got traffic right ahead of us and it was really hard to get the right gap, well that was it. We have some work to do before the race tomorrow now, so far we’ve had a good car so we’ll keep positive with that.”

SIMON PAGENAUD, NO. 22 MENARDS TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 22ND:  “The Menards Chevy is still just super tight.  I didn’t have enough speed to make it through to the next round.  I just need to keep working on understanding the track and getting the best out of the car.  We are starting at the back, but we have some red Firestone tires for tomorrow.  Some good strategy could bring us back to the front and that’s what we will try and do.”

ALFONSO CELIS, JR., NO. 32 JUNCOS RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 23RD:    “Qualifying has finished and day two has gone by. I would say in general I am happy with the direction we went in today and the pace we picked up. Even though we did not qualify where we wanted to be I think we made a lot of progress as a team this weekend. The car is the best it’s been so far. We will keep improving and tomorrow I think we have some great pace to battling with everyone in the pack. It’s a big step forward so we will now focus on the race.”

TONY KANAAN, NO. 14 ABC SUPPLY AJ FOYT RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 24TH:  “It’s been a difficult weekend for us. We’ve tried absolutely everything we could with the setup since Thursday and nothing seems to give the No. 14 ABC Supply car a direction. I’m not sure exactly what to expect from the race, the only thing I can say is that I’ll give my 110%, like always.”

CHARLIE KIMBALL, NO. 23 TRESIBA CARLIN CHEVROLET, QUALFIED 25TH“Obviously I’m disappointed with how we qualified today. We made some big strides forward yesterday with the No. 23 Tresiba Chevrolet after Thursday’s test. Even this morning I was still feeling pretty good with where we were, but we just missed the window on tires and qualifying didn’t go our way. I’m still confident in our race pace and I think with a little bit of strategy we could still come out of Portland with a good result.”
