Josef Newgarden may not legally own Iowa Speedway, but figuratively, he does. The Team Penske driver dominated the short oval once again, earning his fifth victory at the track today. Newgarden joins AJ Foyt, Al Unser, and Nigel Mansell as the only drivers to ever win four consecutive oval races. It is his third victory this season, and his first since winning the Indianapolis 500 in May.
Today’s victory moves Newgarden into second place in the championship standings, still 98 points behind leader Alex Palou of rival Chip Ganassi Racing. It was a 1-2 finish for the Penske organization, with Scott McLaughlin finishing right where he started. Pato O’Ward earned his third consecutive podium at Iowa, finishing just ahead of Marcus Ericsson.
Will Power rounded out the top-five on Saturday, but it was another disappointment for the veteran. Power swept the poles for the two races this weekend earlier in qualifying, which extend his all-time record to 70. It is the second consecutive year that he has done that, yet he still has never won in 16 career starts at the Speedway.
Scott Dixon is another former champion that has never won at Iowa. He too came up short today, finishing in 6th. Kyle Kirkwood earned a 7th place finish with Palou scoring another top-ten result….
