Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama start time changed

Josef Newgarden UPDATE 2: INDYCAR Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama once again under red-flag race stoppage
Johnnie Parks | 23 April, 2018, 21:13

After waiting almost 90 minutes, INDYCAR officials determined that the track was still not suitable for racing and, with more rain forecast, made the call to postpone the completion until Monday.

The Indy Grand Prix of Alabama is postponed for Monday, April 23rd at 11:00 a.m. Race distance: 207 miles, 90 laps.

Ditto for Graham Rahal, who also lost a couple of positions when he spun before what was supposed to be the restart, only to see the red flag come out for a second time.

Some drivers agreed with decision to stop the race and some did not.

It's a long way from the days when American open-wheel racers like A.J. Foyt reigned over the sport, but it's a nice step for American drivers in a series that's been dominated in recent years by worldwide stars like four-time series champion Dario Franchitti (Scotland) and three-time champ Scott Dixon (New Zealand) - not to mention Newgarden's fellow Team Penske drivers Will Power (Australia) and Helio Castroneves (Brazil). "You had to completely trust the guys that they were accelerating". For me, it's always been my focus to lead that charge and obviously to win a championship. Barber Motorsports Park announced that it will open its gates and allow fans to attend the conclusion without a ticket. He has led laps in each of the season's first four races.

Andretti Autosport's Patricio O'Ward led every lap in wet and tricky conditions to complete a weekend sweep of the Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires doubleheader.

Sebastien Bourdais of Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser-Sullivan will restart P2.

Newgarden is scored as the race leader, followed by St. Petersburg victor Sebastien Bourdais, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Long Beach victor Alexander Rossi, James Hinchcliffe, Zach Veach, Robert Wickens, Takuma Sato, Scott Dixon and Ed Jones.

The race on the 2.3-mile permanent road course began under rainy conditions that grew stronger as the day went on.

Pole sitter Josef Newgarden remained in the lead through 22 laps Sunday.

The race went a couple laps too long for Will Power of Team Penske. Most notably on a race restart on lap seventeen, race leader Josef Newgarden nearly lost control when he ran over a puddle on the start/finish straight, with his Team Penske team-mate Will Power then being sent spinning into the pit-wall seconds later.

"It just intensified to the point where you're starting to get a situation where it's going to take it out of the drivers' hands", Newgarden said.

I could not see a thing - and I had just one auto in front of me! The conditions were just so bad. "Once it got spread out and the wind picked up, it was blowing a lot of the spray off, but we were starting to get a lot of hydroplaning down the front straight". It's more advantageous for us to get it in.

The yellow leading to the restart was brought out when Ed Jones of Chip Ganassi Racing punted Charlie Kimball from behind, sending Kimball into the wall in Turn 17.

You can see it was getting really bad and I kept saying to Roger [Penske, team owner and Power's strategist] that I can't see a thing in front of me.
