Rossi Heads Honda Sweep at Watkins Glen

2017-09-03

Starting from the pole, Rossi was the driver to beat throughout the 60-lap event, despite having to make an extra pit stop when he failed to receive a full load of fuel during his first scheduled service, due to an issue with his pit equipment.  In addition, the threat of rain and a pair of early-race caution flags led to a half-dozen cars going “off sequence” with their pit strategies, including the Chip Ganassi Racing Honda of Max Chilton. Fortunately, the second caution enabled Rossi to close the gap to the leaders, and effectively took him off sequence, as well.  Once in the lead group, Rossi was both able to conserve fuel (running stints of 18 and 17 laps, respectively), and still led a race-high 32 laps. For his part, Dixon was also strong throughout the Watkins Glen weekend, qualifying second and running down all of the off-sequence drivers to climb from seventh back to second in an impressive run from between Laps 34-40.  Dixon closed on leader Rossi in the...
