IndyCar at Gateway: Start time, how to watch, entry list & more
All you need to know ahead of the 15th of 17 rounds in the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series, the Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway.
This will be the 14th Indy car race at World Wide Technology Raceway. The first was a CART series race in 1997 when Paul Tracy won in a Penske-Mercedes-Benz, while in 2001 after the track switched allegiance to became an Indy Racing League event, it was won by Al Unser Jr. in a G-Force-Oldsmobile run by Galles Racing.
After 2003, the event went on hiatus until 2017, when Josef Newgarden won after a memorable elbows-out pass on Penske-Chevrolet teammate Simon Pagenaud into Turn 1. He has since scored two more wins there, and is the defending winner. Other former Gateway winners on the grid include Power, Sato, Dixon and Helio Castroneves, whose triumph here came as long ago as 2003.
There have been eight different winners in 15 IndyCar races in 2022: Josef Newgarden (4), Scott McLaughlin, Scott Dixon and Pato O’Ward (2), and Colton Herta, Marcus Ericsson, Will Power and Alexander Rossi. Power currently leads the championship, just six points ahead of Dixon, 12 ahead of Ericsson, 22 ahead of Newgarden, 33 ahead of defending champion Alex Palou, 58 ahead of McLaughlin and 59 ahead of O’Ward.
For Callum Ilott (Juncos Hollinger Racing) and Christian Lundgaard (Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing) this will be WWT Raceway debut, while fellow rookies Kyle Kirkwood, Devlin DeFrancesco, David Malukas have all raced here on the Road To Indy.
Meyer Shank Racing’s Helio Castroneves will make his 372nd IndyCar start, while Dixon will make his 303rd consecutive start, the second-longest streak in IndyCar history.
