Toronto IndyCar Postscript
  by Brian Carroccio
This week's Toronto IndyCar postscript examines the tussle between Honda drivers Sebastien Bourdais and Takuma Sato and what might be behind it. It's been festering for awhile and it all came to a head in Toronto. We also look at the five drivers remaining who seem to have a realistic shot at the 2019 IndyCar title. Two are a real longshot, one is a maybe but, barring any major hiccups, it's really down to two drivers for this year's title. And this year's title fight is what everyone has said for years that the series needs. That opportunity is well, right freaking there, right freaking now!
IndyCar Iowa Preview
  Iowa 300
Last year, Josef Newgarden led the most laps of the race (229) but with 45 laps to go James Hinchcliffe's SPM Honda passed Newgarden's Penske Chevy and pulled away to win the Iowa Corn 300 IndyCar race. Spencer Pigot and Takuma Sato finished 2nd and 3rd but that is because Newgarden gambled on a late caution and pitted for new tires but that was the wrong call. Newgarden came home 4th and Robert Wickens rounded out the top-5. 

Can Hinchcliffe win again?

Pagenaud holds off Dixon to win IndyCar Toronto race
  Rossi beats Newgarden for 4th
Before what appeared to be a sellout crowd, polesitter Simon Pagenaud grabbed the lead in his Penske Chevy at the start of the Honda Indy Toronto, and except for pit stops, led all the way to win the 85-lap IndyCar race on the bumpy streets around Exhibition Place, his third win of the year. Last year's winner Scott Dixon drove a rather lonely race to finish a distant 2nd while Andretti Honda ace Alexander Rossi did what he had to do and held off points leader Josef Newgarden (Penske Chevy) for third.

Team Penske's Simon Pagenaud has won the pole for the Honda Indy Toronto with a time of 58.429s in Q3 qualifying to beat Ganassi Honda driver Scott Dixon last year's winner. Dixon spun out just past the finish line and he sat there while the other drivers finished their runs.  IndyCar did not throw a red flag so he may not lose his fast lap of 58.595s. Dixon's teammate Felix Rosenqvist was third quick followed by Alexander Rossi, Josef Newgarden and Ed Jones.
