Power Looking For Another Superspeedway Victory And 3rd Straight Pocono Win

I wrote about this during the Month of May at Indy but it has to come up again as the Verizon IndyCar Series heads towards the Pocono Raceway this weekend. Will Power is the best oval racer in the series today. Yes, Will Power. Period. A few years ago, this statement would have knocked fans off their feet. See, out of Power’s 34 career INDYCAR wins, 27 have come on road and street courses. He’s arguably one of the best drivers ever on those circuits. AJ Foyt, Mario Andretti and Al…

Wickens Trying To Keep Momentum Going Sunday In Pocono

If trends hold true then Robert Wickens will shock the field and win his first Verizon IndyCar Series race on Sunday at the Pocono Raceway. Well, the only reason it would be a shock would be that he’s never raced at Pocono before and his first win would come on a superspeedway rather than a road/street course. But, Wickens finished third at Toronto, second at Mid-Ohio, so the next spot up would be a win right? His main rival in the series, Alexander Rossi, saw his first win come on…

Tony Kanaan A Sleeper Factor For Sunday’s Race In Pocono

Tony Kanaan hasn’t visited victory lane in nearly four years now. But, if he’s going to end his winless drought this season, Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 (1:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network) would be the place that it happens. It would be fitting too that he could win a race that is also his title sponsor on his No. 14 Chevrolet. But, it’s also very realistic though.
