Newgarden's stays in championship fight with 1st Indy win
INDIANAPOLIS – Josef Newgarden doesn't intend to just give up on his season title defense. With the Harvest GP win, Newgarden moved within 40 points of what once seemed a seemingly safe 120-point lead of five-time series champ Scott Dixon. “He was happy and a little bit surprised that I experienced this on the road course," VeeKay said. “I'm just glad we can kick start the 2021 season because there's nothing else for us to fight for in 2020." He's had six straight top-10 finishes including a win from the pole at Mid-Ohio and is now third in the points.
