Dario Franchitti needs to make a move soon if he's going to get back into the IndyCar points race this season. A big result in Toronto on one of his favorite tracks could give him the boost he needs.
Franchitti enters this weekend's Honda Indy Toronto eighth in the driver's standings with 216 points, 70 behind leader Will Power. But he's the defending champion at the Toronto street track near the city's Exhibition grounds and has won the race two of the past three years.
Franchitti also won the event in 2009, when the race returned from a one-year hiatus, and 1999. His three titles in Toronto are the third most in the history of the race, dating back to 1986. American Michael Andretti holds the record with seven victories.
