Pato O'Ward, Arrow McLaren at Gateway

The sophomore driver is cementing himself as the alpha dog in his first season with Andretti Autosport.

Scott McLaughlin: 9

Another Nashville pole, another Nashville runner-up for the Team Penske driver.

Alex Palou: 9

Yet another podium finish for Palou, who extended his championship lead with just four races remaining.

Josef Newgarden: 9

It was a great day for the hometown racer, who climbed his way to the front, but he still finished behind Palou.

Scott Dixon: 8

Although he was never in position to win the race, it was a third consecutive top-five finish for Dixon at Nashville.

Romain Grosjean: 8

A 6th place finish almost felt like a podium for Grosjean, who kept it clean, led some laps, and brought the car home in one piece.

Marcus Ericsson: 6

It was an odd weekend for Ericsson, who was at both ends of the spectrum at times but still earned a solid 7th place finish.

Pato O’Ward: 7

Arrow McLaren didn’t have race-winning cars this weekend, but Pato made the most of the situation and earned another top-ten result.

Ryan Hunter-Reay: 6

Not a bad day for the veteran, as he continues to make slow and steady progress with Ed Carpenter Racing.
