The race for the NTT IndyCar Series season championship is nearing the finish line, and there are still five drivers in the hunt.
Will Power, Josef Newgarden, Scott Dixon, Marcus Ericsson and Scott McLaughlin are all mathematically within reach of the championship heading into Sunday’s season finale race at the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in California.

Scott Dixon and Josef Newgarden enter the race tied for second place, with Dixon looking for a record-tying seventh championship and Newgarden in search of his third.
In fourth place is Indy 500 champ Ericsson, followed by McLaughlin, coming off win last weekend at Portland.
