Indycar - 2018 Honda Grand Prix of Alabama    (Score: 1, Normal) 04-20-2018 14:38

This weekend Indycar visits the flowing and popular road course of Barber Motorsports Park. Being the first road course of the season and with the new 2018 cars, this should be an interesting indicator and a bellwether for the six road courses on the schedule.

Barber should be the best chance for Chevy to counter-punch against Honda's dominance in the opening races. Qualifying here is key and that has always been a Chevy strength. If a driver like Newgarden ends up on pole, Hondaís driveability and fuel mileage advantage could be negated here. For Race strategy, the Honda pit window should be wider. So letís say that Newgarden leads the race and Rossi is second. How do you get around Newgarden? And if one of the Hondas is on the pole at Barber (how long has it been since a Honda was on pole at a Road Course?), then Chevy has very little chance to do anything about it. This is evident in how Wickens in St. Pete and Rossi at Long Beach were able to drive away. A leading Honda would never have to go into fuel save mode, while a second-place Chevy would almost immediately.

It's anyone's guess what will happen! Tune in this weekend to see if it's qualifying or race strategy that has a bigger impact on the result!

I still don't understand how Power didn't hit anyone during his spin!
