One of the best known championships through motorsports, the Verizon IndyCar Series wrapped up there 2018 championship season in the beautiful Napa Valley area Northern California at the 11 turn ribbon carving through canyons and valleys known as Sonoma Raceway. 

 The main focus was of course on who was going to take home the astor cup and the bragging rights to call themselves a IndyCar champion. The two that had the best shot at doing so we're the iced kiwi, Scott Dixon or the California Kid, Alexander Rossi. 

 Rossi was trying everything he could to make this championship a reality by trying to charge his way through the field on the initial start. Hey get 'em while bunched up right? and also the fact that your dealing with Scott Dixon who is able to persevere and come out the right end of practially anything as seen in the last race at Portland. 

 Rossi on the other hand did not come out on the other end as while he trying to get as far out as could on the start he made contact with teammate Marco Andretti and cutting down a tire and having to come in for service. Worst of all it happened in the first turn after the entrance on pitroad. So poor Rossi had to limp all the way around the course with flat left front, so by trying to advance his position he didn't luck out so well falling to 25th in the running order

 The 2 guys that would be "the guys" all day long were Ryan Hunter-Reay and Scott Dixon as they would check out on the field. 

 Rossi, who was a lap down at this point faught his way through the field to try and desperatly tried to get back on the lead lap if he wanted to keep his championship hopes alive. His wish would be granted as Graham Rahal would come to a slow stop on track bringing out a caution and the chance for Rossi to get his lap back. 

 On the restart it would be Ryan Hunter-Reay leading once again with Scott Dixon leading amongst the championship contenders. But with Alexnader Rossi back on the lead lap it was time to see if he could bounce back to the front for the second time and give Dixon a run for his money. 

 Alexander Rossi would be able to climb as high as 6th but would be able to catch Scott Dixon in 2nd or teammate and race leader Ryan Hunter-Reay. 

 Dixon was able to win his 5th series championship ranking him at 2nd best on the all time championship list only behind AJ Foyt woth 7 championships. 

 Rossi may have missed out on a championship, but with this only being his 3rd year in IndyCar I think we can say we will see alot more of Alexander Rossi in the future.  

 With this season wrapped up we can now look forward to 2019 which has some desirable additions to it with new venues introduced to the schedule and old time classic's returning. 

 With all the positive's that have occured in the series the past few seasons, theres no telling what the future holds.
