Pocono Qualifying Cancelled Due to Weather

Pocono Qualifying Cancelled Due to Weather

  • Rain, low ceiling result in cancellation of IndyCar Series qualifying
  • ABC Supply 500 field set by team-owner points
  • Championship contenders Alexander Rossi to start second, Scott Dixon fourth

LONG POND, Penn. (August 17, 2019) – Low cloud cover, followed by rain showers, forced race officials to cancel qualifying Saturday at Pocono Raceway for Sunday’s ABC Supply Co., Inc. 500.  

A scheduled one-hour morning practice session was scrubbed when overcast skies and a low ceiling prevented the required medical helicopter from flying to Pocono.  A brief but heavy rain shower then soaked the 2.5-mile Pocono tri-oval, leading to the cancellation of qualifying.  

As a result, the starting order for the 22-car NTT IndyCar Series field will be set by owner points, with last year’s race winner, Alexander Rossi, starting second to points leader Josef Newgarden.  Defending series champion Scott Dixon will start fourth.

Later in the afternoon, the track dried sufficiently for the series to run a two-hour practice session, with Honda drivers claiming three of the top four positions, led by Dixon in second at 215.761 mph, with rookie Santino Ferrucci third at 215.377 mph and Rossi fourth at 215.373 mph.

Television coverage of Sunday’s 200-lap race, the second and final 500-mile race of the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season, starts at 2 p.m. EDT on the NBC Sports Network.

Front-Row Start for Rossi, Honda at Mid-Ohio

Front-Row Start for Rossi, Honda at Mid-Ohio

Alexander Rossi qualifies second for Sunday’s Honda Indy 200
Sebastien Bourdais, Felix Rosenqvist also advance to Fast Six final qualifying
Andretti Autosport announces multi-year agreement to continue with Honda power

 

LEXINGTON, Ohio (July 27, 2019) – Championship contender Alexander Rossi led the way for Honda in qualifying today at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, and will start Sunday’s Honda Indy 200 on the outside of the front row, second.

 

Earlier today, Rossi’s Andretti Autosport team announced the team has reached a multi-year agreement to continue with Honda power in the NTT IndyCar Series, and a multi-year deal with Rossi to continue driving for the Indianapolis-based organization.

 

After running only 14th in Friday’s practice sessions, overnight setup changes resulted in significant improvements to Rossi’s Honda, and he advanced through the first two rounds of “knockout” qualifying.  Rossi led the final “Fast Six” round as well, until Will Power’s final lap secured the pole by 0.3748 seconds.

 

Sebastien Bourdais also advanced to final round qualifying in his DCR with Vasser-Sullivan Honda, and will start fifth.  Felix Rosenqvist led the rookie contingent and will start sixth for Chip Ganassi Racing, his sixth top-six qualifying run of the season.

 

Another fast rookie, Colton Herta, will start seventh for Harding Steinbrenner Racing, while defending series champion Scott Dixon qualified eighth.  Running his eighth race this season, Jack Harvey qualified ninth for Meyer Shank Racing, while Ryan Hunter-Reay made it seven Honda drivers in the top ten.

 

The Honda Indy 200, 13th round of the 2019 season, begin at 4 p.m. EDT Sunday, with live network television coverage on NBC.

 

Alexander Rossi (Harding Steinbrenner Racing Honda)Qualified second, his sixth front row start of 2019; announced earlier today he had re-signed with Andretti Autosport, which also has renewed a multi-year agreement with HondaLooking back at [final-round qualifying], [pole qualifier] Will [Power] did a really slow first lap for his two-lap run, and I did two hard laps in a row. I think I ran out of tire because they were used [up]by the time I got halfway through the [second, faster] lap,and that’s where the deficit [to pole qualifier Power] came from. A little bit of a strategy call they made better than us, but I think our race car is great. The boys have done a really good job overnight – we struggled yesterday [in practice]. The NAPA Andretti Honda boys put their heads together and made it happen today, and the front row is a good place to start.

Rookie Colton Herta tops the time charts in opening day of practice for Honda Indy 200
Another rookie, Felix Rosenqvist, impresses with fourth-fastest time
Scott Dixon leads morning practice, finishes day seventh overall

 

LEXINGTON, Ohio (July 26, 2019) – Honda-powered rookie Colton Herta led the way Friday at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in the opening day of NTT IndyCarSeries practice in preparation for Sunday’s Honda Indy 200.  Herta’s best lap time of 1:05.7292 was more than two-tenths of a second clear of second-quickest Simon Pagenaud.

 

Another Honda-powered rookie, Felix Rosenqvist, ended the day fourth fastest, followed by Ryan Hunter-Reay’s Andretti Autosport Honda, with the Arrow Schmidt Peterson Honda of James Hinchcliffe rounding out the top six.  Defending series champion Scott Dixon led the morning session, but dropped down to seventh for the day after a late red flag [for a crash by Josef Newgarden] prevented him from making a run on the alternate, softer-compound Firestone “Red” tires.

 

Activities continue Saturday at Mid-Ohio with final practice and qualifying for Sunday’s 90-lap race. The 13th round of the 2019 season begin at 4 p.m. EDT Sunday, with livenetwork television coverage on NBC.

 

Colton Herta (Harding Steinbrenner Racing Honda)Fastest in Friday practiceI picked up 1.1 seconds [on the Firestone Red tires], so it is a pretty big step up considering how short the track [length] is here.  There are a couple of places where you really gain time [on the Red tires] like Turn 12.  It really ‘grips up’ when you have the Reds on.  Turn 2 and Turns 4 and 5, too.  The Capstone car has been great, and we’re ready to go racing now.”

Sato Runs Fourth for Honda in Iowa Qualifying

Sato Runs Fourth for Honda in Iowa Qualifying

  • Takuma Sato leads Honda qualifying effort with fourth-place run at Iowa Speedway
  • Defending race winner James Hinchcliffe to start fifth
  • Honda drivers claim seven of top 10 qualifying spots

NEWTON, Iowa (July 19, 2019) – Takuma Sato led the Honda field today at Iowa Speedway in qualifying for Saturday night’s Iowa 300.  The 2017 Indianapolis 500 winner, who scored his first IndyCar Series pole at Iowa in 2011, will start fourth as the Rahal Letterman Lanigan driver seeks his second victory of the 2019 season.

Last year’s Iowa winner, James Hinchcliffe, will start fifth in his Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda, with championship contender Alexander Rossi sixth for Andretti Autosport, as Honda drivers claimed seven of the top 10 starting positions in the 22-car field.

Sato’s teammate, Graham Rahal, will start from the inside of the fourth row, seventh, with defending series champion Scott Dixon eighth after today’s single-car qualifying runs.  Three-time Iowa Speedway race winner Ryan Hunter-Reay with start ninth, while rookie Marcus Ericsson led the rookie field and will start 10th in his Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda.

Saturday’s 300-lap race, the first short-oval race of the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season, starts at 7 p.m. EDT, with live coverage on the NBC Sports Network.

Takuma Sato (Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda) Qualified fourth: “Today, the first [qualifying] lap was pretty good, but on the second lap the car was sliding all over the place. But the car was pretty good.  Iowa is always special for me.  This is the place where I earned by first [IndyCar] pole position. And it’s always exciting to race here.  There is no rest throughout the 300 laps, and it is always a hard battle.  We had a good race here last year [finishing third], so there’s no reason to think we shouldn’t have a good one this year, too.”

Rosenqvist Leads Honda Field in Toronto Practice Sessions

  • Rookie Felix Rosenqvist posts second-fastest time in opening-day practice
  • Scott Dixon leads morning session, ends day fifth overall
  • Sebastien Bourdais, Graham Rahal also record top-six times

TORONTO, Ont., Canada (July 12, 2019) – A two-time Indy Lights winner on the Exhibition Place temporary street circuit, Felix Rosenqvist led the way for Honda today in practice for Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto.  The NTT IndyCar Series rookie posted the third-quickest time in the morning session, which was led by his Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Scott Dixon, and was second-fastest in the quicker afternoon practice, less than a tenth of a second off the fast time set by Simon Pagenaud.

Rosenqvist was one of four Honda drivers to finish in the top six around the bumpy, challenging 1.786-mile Toronto street circuit.  Sebastien Bourdais ended the day third overall in his Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan Honda, with Dixon fifth after pacing the morning practice.  Graham Rahal rounded out the top six in his Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing Honda.

Alexander Rossi ran fourth in the morning session, but twice made contact with the wall and ended the day 14th overall.  Hometown favorite James Hinchcliffe was 11th quickest, as less than a second covered the first 15 cars in a tight opening-day field.  

Activities continue Saturday in Toronto with final practice and qualifying for Sunday’s 85-lap race. The 11th round of the 2019 season begin at 3 p.m. EDT Sunday, with live television coverage on the NBC Sports Network.

Felix Rosenqvist (Chip Ganassi Racing Honda) second-fastest in Friday practice at the Honda Indy Toronto: “I think the team brought a great setup and a great car here to Toronto. We won here in Indy Lights, and so I’ve always loved this layout. We had a really strong start in Practice 1 [running third], and the car was even better in Practice 2. It’s always great having a teammate like Scott [Dixon], because there is such a wealth of knowledge on the #9 team. I hope we can keep things moving in the right direction for tomorrow, as qualifying [up front] will be crucial here.”

3 p.m. EDT

Race Broadcast on NBC Sports Network and IndyCar Radio Network

Practice, Qualifying on NBCSN and NBC Gold

HONDA AT TORONTO

  • The NTT IndyCar Series returns to Exhibition Place for the Honda Indy Toronto, one of the oldest street-circuit events in Indy car racing. Run for the first time in 1986 as a Championship Auto Racing Teams [CART] event, Toronto is preceded as an Indy car street circuit only by the Grand Prix of Long Beach.  
  • Honda has served as title sponsor of the Toronto event since it returned to the IndyCar Series schedule in 2009.  The sponsorship is administered through Honda Canada, Inc., Honda’s Canadian subsidiary.  American Honda, meanwhile, sponsored the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park in April, and will also be title sponsor of the series’ next round, the Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course (July 27-29).
  • Honda-powered drivers and teams have a history of success at Toronto, winning 10 times in both CART and IndyCar Series competition, most recently with Scott Dixon’s victory in last year’s race.  One of Dixon’s three career wins in Toronto, he is now tied with former teammate Dario Franchitti as Honda’s most successful driver on the Exhibition Place street circuit.
  • Franchitti’s first Toronto victory came in 1999, and he also won in 2009 and 2011.  Meanwhile, Dixon claimed both races of a doubleheader weekend in 2013 for his first two victories here.
  • Other Honda-powered winners at Toronto include Adrian Fernandez in 1996, Alex Zanardi in 1998; Michael Andretti in 2001; and Will Power in 2010.

MANUFACTURER COMPETITION 

  • On the strength of five race wins, six poles and 19 podium finishes in 10 races, Honda has a 72-point lead in the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series Manufacturers’ Championship.  Honda has 826 points to 754 for Chevrolet.
  • The 2019 season marks the eighth season of manufacturer competition in the NTT IndyCar Series, following six years of Honda serving as single engine supplier from 2006-11.  Chevrolet and Honda are again battling for supremacy throughout the 17-race season.
  • Honda’s most recent win came two weeks ago at the classic Road America road course, as Alexander Rossi dominated from start to finish, leading every lap but one to take the checkers by an astounding 28-second margin over Josef Newgarden and the rest of the 23-car field.
  • Other Honda wins this year included defending series champion Dixon’s first victory of 2019 – and 45th career Indy car triumph – in the second race of the “Dual in Detroit” doubleheader weekend on June 2. 
  • Rossi scored his first win of 2019 – and second consecutive race victory on the iconic Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach street circuit in April.  Earlier Honda-powered race victories this season include Takuma Sato taking the win at Barber Motorsports Park; and Colton Herta, who became the youngest race winner in IndyCar Series history at the Circuit of the Americas in March.
  • Rossi is second overall in the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series Drivers’ Championship, just seven points behind leader Josef Newgarden (402-395).  Dixon is fourth with 308 points.  Among other Honda-powered drivers, Sato is sixth with 292 points, followed by Ryan Hunter-Reay with 271. Graham Rahal stands eighth, with 244 points.
  • Honda’s Indy car win total of 242 in 25 years of North American open-wheel racing – including 12 Indianapolis 500 victories since 2004 – is unmatched by any other manufacturer in the same period.  In addition, for the second year in a row, each full-time Honda team scored at least one IndyCar Series race victory in 2018.
  • Eleven wins from 17 races in 2018 brought Honda the company’s seventh IndyCar Manufacturers’ Championship, highlighted by a 1-2 finish in the Drivers’ Championship for Honda-powered Scott Dixon and Alexander Rossi.
