Alexander Rossi with podium in Toronto

After a rough and tumble race in Toronto last year, Alexander Rossi was looking for a cleaner version this past Sunday. While he'd seen a few walls along the 11-turn, 1.786-mile temporary street circuit throughout the weekend, his race day was clean and productive.



With a decent qualifying run, Rossi started the Honda Indy Toronto from the fourth position. On the first turn of Lap 1, Rossi smartly overtook the third-place starter, Ed Jones. Two flawless pit stops and 85 laps later, he finished on the podium and one position ahead of series points leader Josef Newgarden.
 



“I think that we knew going into today that we didn’t have a race winning car,” said Rossi, “and it would take a little bit of luck to get that. The two in front of us drove a great race, so to be able to finish in front of Josef and get a trophy is a good day. Huge hats off to the 27 NAPA Andretti Honda boys – great pit stops, good strategy and we did what we needed to do today.”



The race ended under caution when Will Power made contact with the tire barriers with one lap remaining. Team Penske’s Simon Pagenaud took home the win, and Scott Dixon finished second for Chip Ganassi Racing. Rossi is now just four points behind Newgarden. The first four finishers in the race are also the top four drivers in the standings as they head to Saturday night's Iowa 300, a short-oval race at Iowa Speedway. <official results>





What's next?


It's the second of three races in a row as the No. 27 NAPA Auto Parts crew heads to the short oval of Iowa Speedway for a Saturday night race.
