Who To Watch
Josef Newgarden, 25, who didn’t get his introduction to racing until age 13, has been on a meteoric rise since. Newgarden has shown continual growth ever since joining the Verizon IndyCar Series, he has a sense of humor and shows gratefulness that surpasses his age. He doesn’t feel entitled to be in the most difficult open wheel series in the world; he’s met every obstacle and is working to conquer them all. Last year Newgarden owned the streets of Toronto with a first place finish, this weekend will show if the 25 year old can take a consecutive win in Canada and continue his domination in the series.
