The 23rd season of the Verizon IndyCar Series will start on March 11, 2018 but online betting news in the US reported that betting odds are already available. And it means that now it’s the best time to check your 6th sense and make some predictions about the 2018 IndyCar Series Winner.
The 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series is the 97th official championship season of American open wheel racing. We’ll see Takuma Sato at the premier event as the defending Indianapolis 500 winner. At the same time, Josef Newgarden will enter the season as the defending drivers’ champion.
Potential Holders of the 2018 IndyCar Series Winner Title:
If you ask the fans of the IndyCar series to name one of the strongest teams, the majority of the would definitely mention Chip Ganassi Racing. Founded in 1990, Ganassi teams competed in the IndyCar Series, NASCAR Monster Energy Cup, Xfinity Series’, the IMSA Championship and the FIA World Endurance.
Together, they have won 10 Open Wheel titles (4 in CART, 6 in IndyCar), 5 Grand-Am Road Racing championships, and other wins in numerous events. And Scott Dixon played not the last role in Ganassi Racing’s success.
Professional racing driver from New Zealand, Scott Dixon, currently holds 41 wins out of 93 podiums and 248 races at IndyCar Series. Dixon is the leading non-U.S. driver in American Championship Cars, and he is the leading active driver in the current IndyCar Series.
He owns the prestigious Jim Clark Trophy, Bruce McLaren Trophy as well as the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to motorsport.
A defending IndyCar champion, Josef Newgarden, can’t compare his 7 wins out of 19 podiums and 100 races to Dixon’s track record, but let’s face the fact that his only 27 and his IndyCar Series career has started only in 2012.
Newgarden reached his first podium in 2013 with Sarah Fisher’s team. In 2015 he claimed his first victory, racing under the merged team of Sarah Fisher and Ed Carpenter. This new merged team let him improve his position with each race and win again at the 2015 Honda Indy Toronto and finish the season being 7th in the standings with 431 points.
Newgarden’s “twin” with a quite similar career history. A professional racing driver from France took his first top class championship title in the 2010 American Le Mans Series. –
