When Indianapolis Motor Speedway plays host to a race on its oval in May, it’s generally a memorable experience.

Saturday’s IndyCar iRacing Challenge was no exception.

Two last-lap crashes among the top four cars. Airborne crashes that went over the pagoda and pylon. A refreshingly stunned runner-up.

Scott McLaughlin scored his second victory in the series as chaos exploded around the Team Penske driver.
