Its been nearly a month since the checkered flag fell at Indianapolis which saw NTT IndyCar Series driver Sage Karam take home his 4th victory of the Lionheart season and stretch his lead to 96 points over 2nd place Connor Harrington. A long month indeed for Harrington who been waiting for another chance to close in on the points leader.
Harrington has proven that he has what it takes to compete with Sage for a championship having scored 3 victories this season, one of them coming on the road at the HyperX Grand Prix of Indy. Reports around the paddock indicate that Sage Karam may not make the Round 10 event at Sonoma. This would indeed help bring the championship battle closer before the series begins a stretch of 3 oval races after Sonoma.
Jake Wright who is the winningest driver at Sonoma in Lionheart history with 2 victories is set to make another appearance this season. The California driver won back to back in Seasons 4 and 5 and also holds the record for the largest margin of victory at Sonoma when he finished ahead of Jonathan Goke by 30.753 seconds in Season 4. If Adam Blocker can find a way to victory lane, he would tie Jake in most wins as he is the defending race winner.
Defending Lionheart IndyCar Series presented by First Medical Equipment Champion Blocker currently sits 146 points back from first place. The 2-time champ has had a slower start to this season than what fans of the series are familiar with, scoring just 1 win on the season at Phoenix Raceway (Round 2).
The TURN Racing Grand Prix of Sonoma will take place Wednesday, July 29th 2020 live on the iRacing eSports Network. Coverage will begin at 9:35 PM CST courtesy of the Global Sim Racing Channel.
