2020 IndyCar preview: Road America 2

The NTT IndyCar Series will hit the 4-mile road course of Road America for round two less than 24 hours removed the first race on Saturday. Scott Dixon won on Saturday, which gave him three wins in the first three races of the season.

The biggest storyline of Sunday’s race will be if Alexander Rossi can finally score a good finish in 2020. It has been a hellish season from the Andretti Autosport product as he saw himself in the grass twice on Saturday. He could not recover and wound up with a 19th-place finish. He currently sits 21st in points and will start 10th on Sunday.

Will Power recovered from a mishap on pit road for a second-straight week to place second on Saturday. It was his first podium of 2020 after rough finishes at Texas and the Indianapolis road course. He will roll off eighth.

Saturday’s pole-sitter Josef Newgarden could not recover from stalling on pit road as he finished 14th. He led the first 25 laps before the mistake. Newgarden struggled in qualifying and will start 14th.

Rookie Alex Palou scored his first podium finish in just his third IndyCar start on Saturday. He will have a chance to have a double podium weekend as he starts third on Sunday.

Youngsters own the front row as Patricio O’Ward earned his first career pole. Colton Herta joins him as he starts second.

Jack Harvey’s qualifying runs have not equated to solid finishes in the last two races. He started second at Indianapolis and in Saturday’s race, but finished 17th and 23rd respectively.

TV coverage for Sunday’s race begins at 12:00 p.m. EST on NBC.
