    The highly competitive IndyCar season moves along to Long Beach for the Toyota Grand Prix. Newgarden takes over the points lead with Rossi hot on his tail. Get your picks in and see if you can guess the next podium finish plus fourth place.

    Rossi continues to set the practice/pre-qualifying pace in Long Beach. Maybe Andretti Autosport gets its first win of the 2018 season as RHR is hanging around the top five.

    Dixon is making a move with 20 to go. He has cut a second off of Rossi's lead.

    This is the first time at Long Beach that a pole-winner wins the race. Rossi may also takeover the points lead as well. Andretti Autosport not only won the race but had three drivers in the top six.
