NTT IndyCar Series: 

Last Race: Sunday August 7th: Streets of Nashville TN: after a 2 hour delay for thunder and lightning to cease: a caution plagued mess on a very narrow track with Scott Dixon coming through for his 2nd win of the season to go with Toronto for Chip Ganassi Racing. Pole sitter Scott McLaughlin finished 2nd, defending champion Alex Palou 3rd.

His first win this season and his first win in 65 starts going back to September 2 years ago! Harvick’s 59th career win, now 10th all-time and a badly needed “W” for Ford on the manufacturer’s side.
