IndyCar driver Esteban Gutiérrez cleared to drive in Toronto

Local hero James Hinchcliffe was 15 while his temporary teammate Sebastian Saavedra, subbing for Mikhail Aleshin this weekend, was 19.

He previously took first back at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama in April, the second time he has taken first place at Barber Motorsports Park (with the other victory coming in 2015) and the earliest into any season in which he has claimed a win.

Scott Dixon has held his lead in the Indycars Championship despite a first lap incident between the Kiwi and Will Power on the streets of Toronto.

"I think that is twice I have had good calls and got into the pits at the right time", Newgarden said. He'd be out of the race as a result. We definitely had a string of bad luck so far this season, so to have something to kind of go our way was great.

Gutiérrez, the Verizon IndyCar Series rookie driving the No. 18 Honda for Dale Coyne Racing, made hard contact with the wall at the exit of turn 11 at the conclusion of Segment 1, Group 1 qualifying on Saturday. Starting seventh on the grid, he managed to avoid a coming-together of Will Power and Scott Dixon on Turn 3 which ended up knocking Power out of the race. Last year, he had the race completely in hand before he stayed out an extra lap and it went yellow, and he went to the back of the field. He dropped almost a lap down and spent the race trying to make up the gap. "That's what we've tried to do". Hinchtown's population has been expanding at a rapid pace and the self-proclaimed mayor embraces being the lone Canadian in the Verizon IndyCar Series fans can look up to.

It's the first pole this season and in this race for the 33-year-old Pagenaud. It was a huge effort from the whole team. Even Friday I remember sitting in the car in pit lane and looking up at the stands and going, 'Man, this is a Friday. It's very bumpy, very tight, and there are no margins for error.

At the time, police said she had held a relationship with the student, whom she taught for three years, for several months. The site is being viewed as an unsafe materials episode as a result of conceivable septic tank issues and debris.

Hinchcliffe was third at his home event, while Marco Andretti showed improved form in fourth, ahead of reigning champion Simon Pagenaud and Ryan Hunter-Reay. Like I said, there's a lot of really good guys in this championship.

"Every race car driver has an ego and I think qualifying is all about ego", he said.

Newgarden and the Penske team. The second caution flag of the race came out on lap 23 when Tony Kanaan got into the turn 1 tire barrier.

The potential for a downpour was a constant concern leading up and lingered on drivers' minds right until the finish.

The race remains without a Canadian winner since 1993, when Toronto native Paul Tracy captured the checkered flag on the streets surrounding Exhibition Place. "The days we get lucky and win a race, just take them". According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Will Power is favored to win this race, as he has 5/2 odds.

Newgarden was almost looking forward to the rain.
