Esteban Gutiêrrez of Mexico was re-evaluated by the IndyCar Medical Staff Sunday morning and has been cleared to drive in Sunday's Honda Indy Toronto. He comes into today's race with plenty of momentum, having finished in the top-5 in four straight races, including one win.

"The last shootout in Q2 is always exciting", said Hinchcliffe, the victor this year at Long Beach. "Luckily we're going out".

"Last year I was the one that won that competition".

Newgarden, the 26-year-old from Nashville, won his second Honda Indy Toronto on Sunday, leading the final 58 of 85 laps. Since his win at Long Beach in April, Hinchcliffe has just two top-10s compared to six finishes of 12th or worse. Castroneves was third fastest in the #3 auto with defending race victor Power fourth in the #12. Spencer Pigot is back as owner Ed Carpenter awaits the next oval races at Pocono and Gateway.

"We were really at the bottom of the barrel on Friday afternoon, the slowest of the four Andretti cars", Rossi said.

Rollercoaster crash injures 33 at Spanish theme park
Users wearing the headsets are taken down a ghostly mine to fight virtual skeletons and spiders, according to the park's website. Jordi Hernandez said: 'With the virtual reality glasses people didn't expect the crash and half lost their teeth or backs.

After Tony Kanaan's first pit stop, the bumpy approach to Turn 1 became too much to handle, and the one-time series champion couldn't get the brakes applied, causing him to enter the corner too fast, and he hit the tire barrier. He was able to get back into the race on Lap 60, moving into fourth spot but finished 10th.

"Even the end of the first stint, there were a couple drops coming down on the visor", Hinchcliffe said.

Michael Andretti has won here seven times from 1989-2001, while the now defunct Newman-Haas team also won seven races from 1989-2004. "I didn't want to get on the radio and ask because I didn't really want to know, if I'm honest". It was a huge turnaround overnight by Andretti Autosport to get the vehicle where it needed to be for the race today. I mean the support that we feel each and every year is unbelievable. "I think it had to be hard to pass people today". The steering on Power's vehicle was broken, meaning he had to be pushed into pit lane. I feel like I really extracted the best out of my auto, the best out of my setup today.

Hinchcliffe, who rebounded from serious injuries suffered in a crash in practice for the 2015 Indianapolis 500, and finished runner up on last year's "Dancing With The Stars", was asked about his obvious popularity in Canada, and the responsibility following in the footsteps of Tracy and Co.

Newgarden says that he'll always take a bit of good fortune.
