It’s Nashville or bust for anyone wanting to reel in Palou

It's Nashville or bust for anyone wanting to reel in Palou

NTT IndyCar Series championship leader Alex Palou held a record lead of 117 points after the 10th round in Toronto, but his history-making run was interrupted at the doubleheader in Iowa where the gap to his closest challenger was trimmed to 80 points.

As the field gets ready for Round 13 this weekend in Nashville, the Chip Ganassi Racing driver remains in good company on that all-time-lead list. After 12 races, he’s no longer atop that category, but he’s currently second, right behind the late Dan Wheldon, who had a 90-point advantage over Sam Hornish after 12 races in 2005. In that unforgettable season, Wheldon’s command over the championship never wavered and he went on to win the title for Andretti Green Racing.
