The most important part of the 32-year-old's currrent job: He's also the series' points leader heading into Saturday's race at Indianapolis. The Colombian will make his season debut Saturday after qualifying fifth in 1:08.2478.
In the Pro Mazda Championship presented by Cooper Tires, Victor Franzoni (Juncos Racing) won by 0.2092- seconds over TJ Fischer (Team Pelfrey). Still, he is having a great start to the 2017 season. The Penske drivers are too good, and there are too many of them up front, for us to think at least two of them won't finish strong.
In addition to Indianapolis Motor Speedway's reputation as the racing capital of the world, the historic venue has hosted everything from balloon races, golf tournaments, airplane races and major concerts.
In 2015, he started the Grand Prix 17th and worked his way up to second.
"King Arthur" cast opens up about new film
He had a standard pitch raring to go but quickly learned Ritchie didn't want to even talk about the movie. One of the biggest treats of watching the film was David Beckham's cameo as an angry solider type.
Hélio Castroneves seems to have a knack for the Indy 500.
It helps, of course, when Pagenaud comes to town in May with three major titles - reigning series champ, current points leader and defending IndyCar Grand Prix victor. He qualified 26th in the 500 and moved up to 14th.
"It's actually the first good qualifying effort to be honest", he said. So while it makes use of Turns 1 and 2, they are taken in the opposite direction.
"We were on attack mode for quite a bit".

He also contributed with a sharp runout of Travis Head (2 off 2) and the big wicket of Kohli in the eventful 17th over. Zaheer Khan's men also defeated Rising Pune Supergiant by seven runs in their last league game at the Kotla on Friday.
Verizon Indycar Series driver Will Power (12) reacts to winning the Indycar Grand Prix at Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course. "Everyone on this team has been working really hard". Although not completely successful, all things considered, it was not a bad day.
Aside from success on the track, Rahal raised $8,500 for the SoldierStrong program that funds the production of exoskeletons to help veterans who have spinal cord injuries or are paralyzed walk again. The Grand Prix race begins at 3:50 p.m.
But it's Saturday's race, the IndyCar GP, in which Pagenaud has really excelled. Rahal overcame an unsatisfactory vehicle early and managed to pull off a 6th place finish. However, that number probably doesn't do justice to the difficulty of pulling this off in modern times, as you would have expected more new winners when the race itself was still new, and indeed the first five drivers featured below got their win in the first 15 races. He said even the 10th-place finish in Long Beach was disappointing because he started sixth.
Of the other sub-30-year-old young guns today, Conor Daly advanced from 15th into the top 10 early but struggled on pit stops and on blacks, Carlos Munoz never seemed a factor, Ed Jones got caught up Marco Andretti and Tony Kanaan's first lap contact and never recovered in what was his worst day in IndyCar thus far (finished 19th) and JR Hildebrand (still only 29) progressed from 21st to 14th but never seemed at ease with the auto all weekend. "I'm looking forward to the 500".
Manchester United focused on Europa vision
Liverpool were given 10,236 tickets for last season's Europa League against Sevilla at Basle's 35,000-capacity St Jakob-Park. I can't stop thinking about what could have been... but that's life that's football, you win some you lose some.
"It was a very physical day", Rahal said.
