0 Comments

Pato O’Ward led the final 24 laps Sunday to win the XPEL 375 at Texas Motor Speedway, topping the results as the latest first-time winner in the NTT IndyCar Series to shake up the points standings.

The Arrow McLaren SP driver, who turns 22 Thursday, joined Alex Palou (who won the season opener at Barber Motorsports Park) as a first-time winner this season. Three of the first four races have been won by the three youngest drivers in IndyCar: O’Ward, Colton Herta, 21 (who won at St. Petersburg last week) and Palou, 24.

O’Ward finished 1.24 seconds ahead of Josef Newgarden. Graham Rahal was third, and Scott Dixon finished fourth after leading a race-high 163 of 248 laps to keep his lead in the points standings. The Chip Ganassi Racing driver holds a 22-point lead over O’Ward (153-131) with Palou in third.
