IndyCar Portland start times

IndyCar Portland Start Times: The NTT IndyCar Series championship is its closest in at least two decades with two races remaining.

Seven drivers remain mathematically eligible for the title when it comes to the Portland Grand Prix, and the 58-point lead separating championship leader Will Power from seventh-placed Will Power is just four points more than the maximum held at one race weekend is available.

Team Penske’s Power leads teammate Josef Newgarden (Winner of the last race at Gateway) by three points. Six-time series champion Scott Dixon is 14 points behind, with Marcus Ericsson (17 points behind), Alex Palou (down-43), Scott McLaughlin (down-54) and O’Ward also in the hunt.

Defending champion Palou is also the defending champion in Portland (where he finally took the lead last year).

The 2022 season ends on September 11th at Laguna Seca Raceway.
