Now that's low aero downforce. Cars shifted to fourth gear in corners and braked from 180 to 145 mph.

The NBCSN commentary mentioned drivers lifting as they were going into the turns. The race coverage went on board with Graham Rahal and his helmet-cam and you could here him lifting.

Race result:

Chevrolet had the upper hand, though R H-R was top Honda, finishing third. As for AJ Foyt Enterprises, that's a race they would rather forget, with both cars going out in a similar fashion.

With the rumours surrounding Castroneves future at Team Penske, winning the race couldn't have come at better time. Otherwise, it was quite an enthralling race.

1 Helio Castroneves, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 1h55m11.2807s
2 J.R. Hildebrand, Ed Carpenter Racing. Dallara/Chevrolet. 3.9647s
3 Ryan Hunter-Reay, Andretti Autosport. Dallara/Honda. 4.5845s
4 Will Power, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 5.7403s
5 Graham Rahal, Rahal Letterman. Lanigan. Dallara/Honda. 10.1811s
6 Josef Newgarden, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 11.0500s
7 Simon Pagenaud, Team Penske. Dallara/Chevrolet. 12.2562s
8 Scott Dixon, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 14.3653s
9 Tony Kanaan, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 15.1184s
10 James Hinchcliffe, Schmidt Peterson Motorsports. Dallara/Honda. 15.8243s
11 Alexander Rossi, Andretti Herta. Dallara/Honda. 1 Lap
12 Ed Carpenter, Ed Carpenter Racing. Dallara/Chevrolet. 1 Lap
13 Esteban Gutierrez, Dale Coyne Racing. Dallara/Honda. 1 Lap
14 Max Chilton, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 1 Lap
15 Charlie Kimball, Chip Ganassi Racing. Dallara/Honda. 2 Laps
16 Takuma Sato, Andretti Autosport. Dallara/Honda. 2 Laps
17 Marco Andretti, Andretti Autosport. Dallara/Honda. 2 Laps
18 Ed Jones, Dale Coyne Racing. Dallara/Honda. 3 Laps

But I don't think that has any influence of the decision. Castroneves was second best Penske driver before the race, was a title contender. So nothing really changed.

If the decision is set in stone to go back to 3 cars, then all sentiments aside it is a logical decision that it is Castroneves that will have to go. Even if he finishes ahead of his teammates.

Just like it was a normal decision last year that either Montoya or Castroneves would have to go if they really wanted Newgarden.

Listening to what the commentary team were saying, the win at Iowa could be significant.

Were they being hopefully that he stays with Penske for '18? Seems to be gaining traction that he may join Montoya over in IMSA with Indy only rides in openwheel.

One of the announcers (can't remember who) said that Helio is not ready to leave but may not have a choice. "They" also said that it would be tough to remove the champ from the series, implying that was what Helio was trying to do.

Honestly, I'm a big Penske fan, but never really liked Helio. Not sure what series I would rather have him in.

Sort of a mixture of being hopeful and wishful thinking. They mentioned his age but also how popular he is and though he has been competitive, there was this three year dry spell hanging over him.

What was interesting was something one of commentary team said, the impact on Castroneves performance, since the arrival of Power and then Newgarden.

They also mentioned how ironic it would be, if he won the series and was dropped, hence winning the race could be game changer.

Hi Guys,
I did not see the Indy Car race, but I wondered how you rate Iowa Speedway?
NASCAR Cup series does not go there but the Xfinity, Trucks, and K&N series do.
The Xfinity and Truck races were by far the best of the season, they were running three wide for most of the races.
It is my favourite oval, it seems to me they got the length, width, and banking just right.

Outside of Rusty Wallace being involved , it's great and one of my favorite "short ovals" that I can see on race coverage.
