This weekend, the IndyCar series will return to the World Wide Technology Raceway (or Gateway, for those of us who are still living in a slightly different era) for a Saturday afternoon event. That means it’s time to get Jalopnik IndyCar Fantasy League picks submitted!
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Why do you have to choose so early? Well, the IndyCar Fantasy League website ran into some hiccups during its first race of the weekend in St.Petersburg; a large number of people just before the race saw the Virtual server crash, meaning a lot of people didn’t make their choice
I recommend making some selections now, as you can always change them later. Plus, we have a race on Saturday this weekend, so don’t let your guard down!
(And as a reminder, we are discounting the results of that first race when awarding the prize – although if the results of St. Your Pete can get you to the top that you wouldn’t otherwise, we’ll make sure you’re compensated.)
With just three races remaining this season, Gateway will play a huge role in the set championship – and our Virtual League championship at Jalopnik.
Will Power has taken the lead of the championship with 450 points, while Scott Dixon trails just behind at 444. Indy 500 winner Marcus Ericsson has 438 points to his name, but all of the top 10 drivers are still theoretically in contention for the 2022 title if they play their cards right.
Gateway is known for putting on some spectacular events (and night races are always going to be fun to watch, anyway), so make sure you make your picks and tune in.
