Wickens gets a shot at IndyCar
  Q&A from Road America

Robert Wickens will be driving today for Schmidt Peterson Motorsports in the No. 7 car, as Russian Mikhail Aleshin works to get back racing here in the Verizon IndyCar Series after encountering visa problems returning to the USA from the 24 Hours of LeMans. It's not going to be his first time in an Indy car. He has some experience in this vehicle, swapping rides with your friend James Hinchcliffe earlier this season. Robert Wickens spoke with the media on Friday morning before Kohler GP practice.

  From Road America

WILL POWER (2016 KOHLER Grand Prix winner): "I'm really looking forward to racing at Road America after the race at Texas. It was a crazy race but the No. 12 Verizon Chevrolet team worked hard together to pull off a win. I'm confident that the momentum we've built off of that win can definitely be a huge benefit for us as we head to Elkhart Lake and get into the championship hunt. It's a fun, energetic

Power wins crashfest in Texas
  Texas race crash damage far exceeds race purse

Pack racing returned to the Verizon IndyCar Series Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway, where Will Power survived a massive battle of attrition to win the Rainguard Water Sealers 600. Power, of Team Penske, won under caution following a yellow flag on Lap 243 of the schedule 248 for a four-car wreck initiated by reigning Indianapolis 500 champion Takuma Sato.

Kimball wins pole in Texas
  Rain Guard 600 at Texas Motor Speedway

Charlie Kimball drove to the first pole position in his Verizon IndyCar Series career, winning the Verizon P1 Award in record fashion for the Rainguard Water Sealers 600 at Texas Motor Speedway. Kimball, set to make his 109th career start, set one- and two-lap INDYCAR qualifying records to earn the first starting position for the 248-lap race on Saturday. Driving the No. 83 Tresiba Honda, Kimball’s two-lap time of 46.5861 seconds (222.556 mph) broke the standard by more than a second held by Will Power since 2013 (47.7960) on the 1.5-mile oval that was repaved and reconfigured in the offseason. 

IndyCar Detroit GP Postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
We've seen impressive drives before from Graham Rahal. One that comes to mind for me actually is not one of the 4 wins he recorded prior to this weekend, but a heat race at Iowa in 2013. I was standing in turn 1 on that muggy late-spring Iowa evening as young Rahal started the race 7th and immediately began picking off cars in front of him. The 50-lap heat ran caution free and ran a mere 15 minutes. However, by lap 46, Rahal had moved around Ed Carpenter for the lead and would go on to win the heat.

TMS hosted two races a year from 1998-2004 and featured a doubleheader event in 2011. The defending champion is Graham Rahal (No. 15 Honda). Will Power has won the pole for three of the past four Texas Motor Speedway races.

Rahal dominates Detroit GP Race 2 for sweep
  by Tim Wohlford

In a race that ran caution free for most of the race, a late red flag for 2 blown engines provided fans with a 2-lap dash for cash. But the results were the same as if the race would've ended in caution -- Graham Rahal dominated the second round of the 2017 Detroit Grand Prix. However, unlike yesterday, Penske showed their road course strength as Josef Newgarden and Will Power finished second and third respectively, and Simon Pagenaud in fifth. Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato finished 4th. Esteban Gutierrez finished 14th.
