Indycar iRacing Season 2020 - points tally

I've been waiting for the season to start, and was just as disappointed as everyone else when the situation developed. But, it's important we all stay safe. I do applaud the series for taking a serious look at the options, though. Compared to some other series I could name, we do have real racing with the real drivers and with real commentary and everyone takes it as a real racing challenge. Kudos!


I've tried to summarize the points for the iRacing series, as I think it adds a little something to track the progress over the season. I felt like sharing it, so I hope I have not made any mistakes. No idea how to make a proper table in this interface. Here's the top ten.

Driver Summary

Scott McLaughlin 83

Will Power 76

Felix Rosenqvist 69

Sage Karam 58

Simon Pagenaud 58

Josef Newgarden 48

Oliver Askew 45

Scott Speed 45

Santino Ferrucci 44




I think we already see the importance of consistency in a 6 race season. It looks really promising for Will Power, who has done a good job in both races so far. I'm really looking forward to the next race in Michigan, and I hope my fellow Swedes can do well on an oval. It will be fun!

For those who haven't watched it, here's the link to the weekend's IRace at Barber.

I had the exact same idea - although itís not marketed as a championship, itís useful to see who is performing or not.

However, I have Karam down for 63 points. 54 total for Watkins Glen - 50 for the win, plus 1 for pole, 1 for leading a lap and 2 for leading most laps. And 9 for Barber - 5 for his lowly finish and then the same bonus points scoring (he led at least from lap 1-23 of the 45).

Ah! See I missed something after all. I didn't know Karam got any points at all for the second race, but Indycar does give out 5 points all the way down.



Thanks, I have added that to my spreadsheet!

So it seems Round 3 this weekend is at Michigan (I think this weekend was the drivers choice round?), and Dale Earnhardt Jr will be joining the field!

I wonder why they didn't make a part of this series of races, carrying a points tally? Could have been a mini championship of it's own for the year. Thanks for doing this guys.

I could be wrong, as I've only been following the iRaces from a distance but I don't think all the drivers have been competing. There's no Takuma Sato in today's race.

Congrats to Simon Pagenaud.

I caught the last 15 laps and quite enjoyed it. Apparently there was a massive pile up at the start.

It would be great if they could race at Michigan for real. I live in hope.

That was quite entertaining.Quite realistic on an oval track.
Cant wait to see McLaughlin in a real race car.

The startline crash was confusing. Obviously the lag blink isn't something that would happen in the real world, but Askew seemed to just plough into as many cars as possible? And they never actually showed the carnage further down the field, presumably it's difficult to get replays like that. Also, why did so many crash in the pits?

I got round to watching the start and Scott McLaughlin's car actually disappears, just as the field approaches the start line. 19.31 minutes into the broadcast.

I’ve updated the championship table - looking very much like it will be a Penske benefit! Difficult to see it being anything other than a 3 horse race now:

Scott McLaughlin - 123 points
Will Power - 109
Simon Pagenaud - 109
Sage Karam - 82
Felix Rosenqvist - 78
Alex Palou - 63
Graham Rahal - 62
Josef Newgarden - 54
Dalton Kellett - 52
Santino Ferrucci - 51

(Note - I cant remember whether McLaughlin led a lap at Michigan or not. If he did, then he should have an extra point).

I have finally watched the race. To bad with that weird crash at the start


For some reason I have slightly different numbers. But I'm pretty sure I missed nothing. Like I said before, it looks like Will Power is looking good, but McLaughlin is really collecting points, and never underestimate an Indy 500 winner!



I'm really sad to see Rosenqvist crash in this race, and where did Ericsson go after his first pit stop? He just faded...

Palou took the lead with 13 to go, holding it until RHR passed him with 9 to go when Palou clipped the wall in T4. I guess that is where the discrepancy comes from
