Sixteen races have come and gone and the championship title will be determined at the double-points season finale held at Sonoma Raceway. Not only will it be the final race of the 2018 season, it is the final Verizon IndyCar Series event held at the 2.385-mile track for the foreseeable future.
On his first attempt at the 12-turn course, Marco Andretti scored his first career win after starting from the front row.
When the checkered flag is waved over Sunday’s 85-lap event, the Verizon IndyCar Series will bid farewell to yet another season of thrilling competition from some of the world’s best athletes.
In His Words.
“It’s very important to end our year strong with the double points. We haven’t been finishing where our pace deserves lately. We need to capitalize here especially with it being the last Sonoma Race. It would be cool to get a second win there.”
