Ouch. In the Indy Lights race 2, Urrutia defended too hard and tangled with Herta. Anyway, Pato O'Ward had a poor weekend, so the championship fight is very tight.

Standings after Indianapolis:

1. MEX Pato O'Ward (Andretti), 145
2. USA Colton Herta (Andretti), 144
3. URU Santiago Urrutia (Belardi), 139
4. BRA Victor Franzoni (Juncos), 119
5. USA Ryan Norman (Andretti), 102
6. CAN Dalton Kellett (Andretti), 87
7. USA Aaron Telitz (Belardi), 98
8. USA Shelby Blackstock (Pelfrey), 42
9. USA Neil Alberico (Pelfrey), 31
10. MEX Alfonso Celis (Juncos), 27

Herta and O'Ward are neck and neck, while Urrutia needs a miracle to get back in the fight.

Toronto will decide his fate, and I'm not talking about Indy Lights.

Urrutia doesn't need a miracle after his Sunday win in Toronto, he just needs to match his late-season success from last year to give him a chance. He finished first or second in the last four races of 2017, and that's what it will take.

Santi won three of the last four races at Mid-Ohio (2016-2017) and won at Gateway last year. That sets up for a potential of three wins, with Gateway being 1.5x the points. He's 40 points back, and if he sweeps M-O and Gateway with max points (32-32-47), he'd claw back a minimum of 23 points. He's be 17 points back heading to the doubleheader finale. He has work to do, but considering the history, it's definitely a possibility.

I think the miracle he needs is to become as quick as O’Ward and Herta?

Or at least consistently as quick as they are. Seems like he is just that TINY little bit slower but when you're fighting for a few spots those thousandths add up

Urrutia has said that the team doesn't give him the right car setup. I think that car setup is a teamwork, and the driver must tell what he wants. Perhaps he isn't good at that.

That always sounds bad for the driver when they say the team didn't give them a good setup, makes me cringe and think they can't communicate what the car needs or is doing. Or can't drive around the problem, more of a natural talent and specific that car setup. A good driver should be able to say a little about the car, the great drivers can tell you what the car needs AND drive around the problem until it can be corrected

Urrutia has been successful at Mid-Ohio. Let's see if Herta and O'Ward can keep up.

But they are funding all of this year's winners in the 2019 season as promised to them. Indy has some time to come up with a replacement but hard to get non-funded drivers in to seats for 2019 without that carrot out there for the 2020 season.

OíWard won both races. Herta second both times.

Urrutia placed fourth and sixth in a seven car field.

Not sure I would call that ďsuccessfulĒ fella!

I would have thought that whoever replaces Mazda in 2019, will provide funding for 2020 and beyond.
