Conway, Bourdais take Toronto IndyCar wins (Sun, 20 Jul 2014 15:19:26 PDT)
Britain's Mike Conway won his second race of the season and France's Sebastien Bourdais captured his first title since 2007 on Sunday at IndyCar's Toronto Indy double-header. While Bourdais won from the pole to snap a 52-race IndyCar win drought, the second race produced the most drama as three cars crashed when rain began on lap 13. Shortly after Conway made an inside passto overtake fellow Englishman Justin Wilson for the lead, a major third-turn tangle involving seven cars halted the race and set up a restart that saw Conway seize command to the checkered flag. Brazil's Tony Kanaan was second with Australian Will Power third, although he lost ground on the day overall in his fight for the season points title with Brazilian teammate Helio Castroneves.
Toronto IndyCar event postponed by rain (Sat, 19 Jul 2014 16:58:27 PDT)
Heavy rain that created visibility problems for drivers and slick conditions for cars forced postponement of Saturday's scheduled IndyCar race at Toronto by a day. The race, the first IndyCar event to be postponed due to bad weather since Sao Paulo in 2011, will be staged as part of a double-header Sunday along with the weekend's other planned event, creating a crucial day in the hunt for the season points title. Brazil's Helio Castroneves leads with 471 points, just nine ahead of Australian Will Power with American Ryan Hunter-Reay, the Indianapolis 500 winner, third at 32 points adrift. Power crashed in a warm-up lap and the pace car spun as officials tried in vain to start the race on rain tires.
