Three races into the 2020 season, Alexander Rossi looks hopelessly out of the championship chase.
Rossi suffered through his third straight miserable outing at Road America on Saturday, starting 11th and finishing 19th on the road course he totally dominated a year ago.
He now has finishes of 15th, 25th and 19th and is 21st in the standings — leaving him 124 points behind leader Scott Dixon. He was three laps down before the season opener at Texas began because of electrical problems; suffered more mechanical issues at the Indy Grand Prix; and was never a factor Saturday in practice, qualifying or the race.
Rossi hasn’t led a lap in his AutoNation/NAPA Honda since a year ago here, and the frustration surely must be mounting for the 28-year-old American who challenged strongly for the title the past two years.
