Team Penske is supposed to be the dominant force in this year’s IndyCar Championship. With the fastest engine/aero package and four of the top five drivers from 2014, Penske has all the ingredients to completely steamroll the opposition. However, a series of wet races and well-timed caution periods have produced a variety of results and it has been a fairly mixed up season.
Here are some interesting stats after the first 10 races:
- 7 different winners.
- Only once has the polesitter taken victory.
- The championship leader, Juan Pablo Montoya, has an average finishing position of just 6th.
- Between them, Penske’s drivers have qualified in the top 3 on 26 occasions. However, they’ve finished races in the top 3 on just 12 occasions.
- 104 points will be up for grabs at the final race of the season. At the moment, 106 points separate the top 8 drivers.
