LAGUNA SECA INDYCAR HISTORY
CURRENT CHAMPIONSHIP STANDING:
2 (552 pts.)
“The end of the season is finally here and we have an opportunity to come out of Laguna Seca with our first championship. There have been some highs and lows this year, but I am very proud of what the NAPA team has accomplished thus far and we are very motivated to have our best weekend yet. This track was my introduction to motorsports at a young age and to come back 20 plus years later has, in a way, has brought my career full circle.”
Four of Andretti’s five drivers have previously raced at Laguna Seca: Alexander Rossi (Skip Barber, Formula BMW), Conor Daly (Indy Pro 2000), Ryan Hunter-Reay (Formula Atlantic, IndyCar, Grand Am) and Zach Veach (Indy Lights, Indy Pro 2000). Though Hunter-Reay is the only of the five to hold IndyCar starts at the track.
Alexander Rossi remains in the championship hunt heading into the season finale weekend, sitting 41 points behind Josef Newgarden and a single point ahead of Simon Pagenaud. In order for Rossi to claim the title, Newgarden can finish no higher than fifth and Rossi no lower than seventh, with Pagenaud finishing behind him.
