Pre-Weekend Quick Takes

Hope everyone had a great week. Here are some of this weekend’s headlines.

1. IndyCar heads into their season finale at Sonoma after a tough week following the death of Justin Wilson. While many will be discussing Wilson (whose No. 25 will be driven by Oriol Servia). The other big topic will be the championship. Six drivers are elligible for the championship with double points available, but the main adversaries are Juan Pablo Montoya and Graham Rahal.

Montoya has led the points all year, but Rahal has kept it close despite a race-ending crash at Pocono last week. With a 34-point cushion, the championship odds are well in Montoya’s favor.

2. The Cup Series is off, but the NASCAR Xfinity and Truck Series will be at their last road course races of the season in Road America and Mosport respectively. Both tracks are known for wild finishes so this weekend could see a shakeup in the standings.

Chris Buescher is just 19 points ahead of Ty Dillon in the Xfinity Series and Tyler Reddick is just 6 points up on Matt Crafton and seven up on Erik Jones. If the recent theme of wild road course races holds true this weekend, expect those numbers to change drastically.

Have a great weekend and see you soon.
