Brazilian Luiz Razia withstood consistent strain in Saturday’;s Grand Prix of Indianapolis and scored his 1st victory in Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires. It was also the first win of the 12 months for 4-time defending champion group Schmidt Peterson Motorsports with Curb-Agajanian.
Fellow Indy Lights rookie Jack Harvey, from England, in no way permitted his teammate to relax, shadowing his each move all through the forty-lap race at the difficult 2.439-mile Indianapolis Motor Speedway street program to finished just .6414 seconds back in 2nd location. Alex Baron (Belardi Automobile Racing) edged Friday’;s very first-time winner, Matthew Brabham (Andretti Autosport), for the last podium place to cap the 2-day doubleheader.
“There was a great deal of stress,” Razia said. “Jack [Harvey] had a vehicle that was a tiny bit greater than me, for some purpose. Our automobiles were the same, but, for some explanation, he had the pace, but I was in a position to hold him off, and I will not know how I did. I believe I was blessed right now to win this race, and I truly feel excellent. The time in the race was not going by at all. For me, it felt like 2 hrs. I just tried to maintain corner by corner, shift by shift and just truly dwell in the second. I could maintain the speed and consider the win.”
Following a very first try at a start was waved off due to an incident amongst Juan Piedrahita (Schmidt Peterson) and Zack Meyer (Staff Moore Racing), Razia managed to fend off an assault from Harvey at flip one particular. It was to set the tone for the remainder of the race.
With the win, Razia moved to inside 5 factors of Zach Veach’;s championship factors lead, 229-224. Gabby Chaves is third with 215 points, followed by of Brabham with 207. Next up for the Indy Lights is the Freedom 100 for the duration of the Indy 500’;s Carb Day festivities on Might 23.
