Newgarden races to win in Toronto
TORONTO (AP) — Josef Newgarden had some fun at hometown star James Hinchcliffe’s expense in the Honda Indy Toronto.
“I love beating Hinch in Canada,” Newgarden said.
Newgarden raced to his second Toronto victory in three years Sunday, dominating on the streets surrounding Exhibition Place. Hinchcliffe was third behind Alexander Rossi.
“I love Hinch. He’s a great representative, but this is so good,” Newgarden said.
Newgarden came out in front on Lap 25 after a crash by Tony Kanaan caused a caution and maintained an advantage of over two seconds for the majority of the rest of the race. The 26-year-old Tennessee driver has five career victories, also winning in Alabama in April.
