INDYCAR Pre Race Media: Top 5 Sleepers For Sunday’s Firestone Grand Prix of St. Pete (12 p.m. ET, NBC, INDYCAR Radio Network)

St. Pete has seen Team Penske dominate this race in year’s past. They’ve won two straight and in five of the last seven years. But, if cautions fly right, we could also see someone steal a win. Sebastien Bourdais played that card right twice. Can someone do so on Sunday?

Pato O’Ward

He had a strong run last year in a runner-up effort.

Ryan Hunter-Reay

He’s not yet won at St. Pete before (0-for-13) but he does have two runner-ups to go along with four top fives in his last five starts there.

James Hinchcliffe

Hinch had a strong car last year that was capable of a podium. He has three top 10’s in his last four St. Pete starts and is also a previous winner (2013) too.

Felix Rosenqvist

As a rookie, he started third and led 31 laps en route to a fourth place finish. Can he recapture that magic this weekend?

Sebastien Bourdais

He’s a two-time winner on his new home track and has three top four results in his last four tries including a fourth place run just last October.
