The first race of the 2017 Verizon IndyCar Series, the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, is in the books, and what a great race weekend it was. There was an assortment of both the usual suspects leading practice as well as some surprises, drama about brakes and cooling issues, and a few off-track excursions that sent crews into furious action to rebuild their racing machines. The entire Mazda Road to Indy was on hand and the USF2000 series debuted the new 2017 chassis from Tatus which proved to be a great platform and provided excellent racing action.
