Maple Leaf Mafia

Schmidt Peterson Motorsports could become IndyCar’s Maple Leaf Mafia if its rumored plans for 2018 come to fruition. Three-year team veteran James Hinchcliffe is believed to have signed a multi-year extension to remain in the No. 5 Arrow Electronics Honda, where he won a race on his SPM debut in 2015 at NOLA and again this year at Long Beach.

If the second part of the deal is confirmed, the Indianapolis-based program would double up on its Canadian driver roster by pairing Hinchcliffe with countryman Robert Wickens (below), who subbed for former SPM driver Mikhail Aleshin during Friday practice at Road America, in the sister No. 7 Honda.
