After back-to-back oval wins at Iowa and Milwaukee, Ryan Hunter-Reay continued to be on a roll by claiming a street race win in Toronto to make it a hat-trick of visits to victory lane.

As usual, Crash writes the best race re-cap in the business! Thank you Crash.

Congrats to Ryan for his third win in a row! He's in a terrific position to win the championship. Bourdais should have had second but tried to make an impossible move IMHO.

Fun race, looking forward to Edmonton.

Despite being proclaimed by many as the face of the "new" IndyCar, Will Power has always managed to find a way to lose the championship. I thought this year was going to be different, the lead he had built up in the early races was impressive. But true to form, Will is doing his best to toss it away. Congrats to Ryan Hunter-Reay, a winner of three races in a row, on three different types of courses. IndyCar is all about winning and scoring points on a variety of circuits. Ryan seems to have that covered, while the "Face of IndyCar" has much to learn.

Agree with you Ranger, there are still some 6 drivers in contention for championship, even consistent ones like Castroneves, Hinchcliffe, Kanaan all in hunt for championship.

And what was Power whinging about? It was clearly his own fault he damaged the front wing, and then he complained that he was penalised about yellow flags.

Helio looks a good bet on consistency but given how unpredictable things have been I still don't think you can rule out Pagenaud in 7th. Proably too much for Dario to do now, although if he got a streak like RHR is on then you never now.

I have to agree with Sir Charles, Crash easily writes the best racing articles of any racing site or magazine. Why isn't the author listed?

Congrats Ryan! Great job.
