O’Ward surges late for first-ever IndyCar win in Race 2 at Texas
The bravest driver within the NTT IndyCar Sequence confirmed why he was Arrow McLaren SP’s first selection to guide the workforce into a brand new future as Pato O’Ward raced his approach to Victory Lane on Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway.
The day may even be remembered for an enormous Lap 1 crash that took out 25-percent of the sector earlier than they reached the inexperienced flag.
On happier fronts, the win was a primary for the 21-year-old Mexican, the primary for the AMSP relationship which began in 2020, the primary for the workforce since July 8, 2018, and the eighth because the workforce was fashioned as Sam Schmidt Motorsports in 2001.
“Lastly, man!” stated the Mexican, who spent a few years rising up within the Lone Star state and put his attacking driving fashion to good use with the breakthrough efficiency. “All people at this workforce has been doing such a great job. I couldn’t be happier. [Winning in] Texas; it’s near my coronary heart.”
It was what the remainder of the NTT IndyCar paddock anticipated coming into the brand new season, and with a pole to open the 12 months at Spherical 1 and fightback drive to complete P4, a P3 within the first Texas race, and as we speak’s win, O’Ward and AMSP maintain P2 within the championship because the Indianapolis Motor Speedway beckons.
