Yes, double points at Sonoma. I thought double points would have been awarded at Pocono, being a 500 mile race but no.

Make sense. Double points because last race

I'm watching an IndyCar race at Sonoma because it's an IndyCar race at Sonoma, not because double points.

Maybe it'll make for some increased interest or some more interesting storylines...

2017 IndyCar Series standings after Gateway:

1. Josef Newgarden, 547 points
2. Scott Dixon, 516
3. Hélio Castroneves, 505
4. Simon Pagenaud, 504
5. Will Power, 464
6. Graham Rahal, 436

Newgarden has a nice 31-point advantage to Dixon, but Penske drivers are known for having choked by Dixon.

Castrneves and Pagenaud seem a bit too far away, but they can't be counted out.

With some 100 points at stake, Power is virtually out of contention.

I just look at it like it's the playoffs. Like in baseball, the postseason doesn't always produce a champion that was the actual best team all year (it says you're from the south, so if you're in braves country you would know all about that). Just by virtue of being the last games/race of the year it gets a little added weight.

2017 IndyCar Series standings after Watkins Glen:

1. Josef Newgarden, 560 points
2. Scott Dixon, 557
3. Hélio Castroneves, 538
4. Simon Pagenaud, 526
5. Will Power, 492
6. Alexander Rossi, 476
7. Graham Rahal, 466

Newgarden totally blew it at Watkins Glen, and now he's virtually tied in points with Dixon.

The points scale at Sonoma is:

o- 100-80-70-64-60 points for the top 5.
o- 56-52-48-44-40 points for the top 10.
o- 38-36-34... points for the next finishers

Extra points:

o- 1 point for pole position.
o- 1 point for leading a lap.
o- 2 points for most laps led.

Newgarden has a 3-point gap over Dixon. So with a few exceptions, the first driver to cross the finish line will win the championship.
