It has been a long 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series season and with one race to go the championship comes down to the final race of the year, the double points event GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma which counts for double points.
Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden and Chip Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon are in the drivers seat for the championship with Newgarden leading Dixon in the championship by just three points.
The momentum swung in Dixon’s favour last time out at the IndyCar Grand Prix at Watkins Glen where he finished on the podium in second place behind race winner Alexander Rossi while Josef Newgarden was classified in 18th place.
Newgarden has won more races then anyone else this season with four victories to his name while Dixon has just one race win this season.
Helio Castroneves and reigning series champion Simon Pagenaud are also in the running for the championship.
