Tennessee's Josef Newgarden eyes consistency in wild IndyCar season

ELKHART LAKE, Wis. - Another week, another driver atop the points standings in this extraordinary IndyCar season.

Marcus Ericsson of Chip Ganassi Racing overtook Team Penske's Will Power and moved back into the points lead after a second-place finish Sunday at Road America. The points lead has changed hands after each of the past six events.

"Yeah, I'd like to stop that," Ericsson quipped after the race.

Ericsson is assured of remaining atop the standings for at least a little while because the IndyCar series is taking the next two weeks off before heading to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course on July 3.

After that, anything's possible this year.

Drivers say the IndyCar field is as balanced as it's ever been. That's evident from all the shuffling at the top of the standings each week.
