INDYCAR Pre-Race Media: Top 5 sleepers for Sunday’s Grand Prix of Portland (3 p.m. ET, NBC, INDYCAR Radio Network)

This is a hard one to predict in the sense that Sunday’s Grand Prix of Portland (3 p.m. ET, NBC, INDYCAR Radio Network) will be just the second one on the track since the NTT IndyCar Series started coming back there in 2018. Last year, there was no racing out west due to COVID so this also makes the visit to the Portland International Raceway the first with the Aeroscreen.

In turn, that could make this race more wide open in a sense too. So, here are the top five favorites to watch out for.

Felix Rosenqvist

He’s at his best on natural road courses and was runner-up in his only Portland start.

Sebastien Bourdais

He had a ton of success on this track in Champ Car and was also third and ninth respectively in his two INDYCAR starts there too. He enters coming off of a top five the last time out.

Takuma Sato

He won in 2018, so why not take a flier here?

Rinus VeeKay

He’s a rookie in INDYCAR competition at Portland but he’s had great success on natural road courses in general, so why not?

Jack Harvey

He’s not had a ton of Portland success but this team is great on natural road courses.
