Alexander Rossi drove to a second place finish in the Honda Indy Toronto, the 12th race on the the Verizon IndyCar Series calendar.

And it was another great day in Hinchtown.

Canadian James Hinchcliffe of Schmidt Peterson Motorsports finished third on his home track. "Pit strategy worked and a yellow flag fell into our lap, but once we were running up front, the auto and Alex had the pace to stay there and be strong".

"I nearly threw up before the race and I've never done that before, so it was quite interesting how my body took it", an ecstatic Thompson said after the race while draped in a Canadian flag. Former Ed Carpenter Racing drivers Josef Newgarden and Mike Conway won two of the past three races at Toronto, while teammate Luca Filippi was runner-up to Newgarden in 2015. "To me it creates a lot of action, a lot of racing, very good for the fans and tough for the drivers", he said.

"After that, it was just a matter of managing the race, making good fuel mileage and staying ahead of everybody". Newgarden won this race two years ago.

Site: Toronto Schedule: Sunday, race, 3:47 p.m., CNBC. Newgarden was running fourth when he made his first stop for fuel and tires on Lap 23, seconds before Tony Kanaan ran into the Turn 1 tire barrier to bring out the caution flag and pit lane was closed. Pagenaud and Rahal also had yet to pit so when they did, they went to the bottom half of the field. Josef Newgarden led the most laps, leading 58 of the race's 85. Marco Andretti was fourth, 14 seconds behind Hinchcliffe.

"We made more progress and made a big change overnight just to see if we could gain some grip", Daly said. "Either way, rain or shine, I'm ready to go out there and do my job".

Rooney reveals the moment he knew his Man United career was finished
Wayne Rooney didn't take long to find the back of the net after re-joining his boyhood club Everton this summer. Fans chanting "Rooney! Rooney!" gathered outside the Everton hotel when the team arrived earlier in the week.

"Once that scenario passed, I thought we had everything we needed to win the race".

Newgarden, even as one of the young drivers on the IndyCar circuit, knows to take good luck when it comes.

Despite his street course win in Long Beach, the 30-year-old Hinchcliffe doesn't necessarily believe that it will give him an advantage in Toronto. Hopefully we can climb up and get that win.

Michael Andretti has won here seven times from 1989-2001, while the now defunct Newman-Haas team also won seven races from 1989-2004. Congrats to Newgarden, but we should have gained a lot of points on Dixon, Newgarden and more.

Racing to his second consecutive third-place finish on Sunday, the party is that much sweeter, Hinchcliffe said, after a decent result.

South Boston: Peyton Sellers and Bobby McCarty split the victories in the 75-lap twin Late Model feature races Saturday night at South Boston Speedway. He finished eighth, his worst performance of the season in races in which he wasn't taken out in a crash.

He commented: "We were... staring into the bottom of the barrel Friday afternoon".
