IndyCar results, points after 106th Indy 500

0 Comments

INDIANAPOLIS — With double points available, the results of the 106th Indy 500 naturally had a major impact on the NTT IndyCar Series standings.

With the third victory of his IndyCar career and first this season, Marcus Ericsson jumped from eighth to first in the championship with 226 points, leading by 13 over Indy 500 runner-up Pato O’Ward and 14 over Alex Palou.

Will Power tumbled from first to fourth in the points with a 15th in the Indy 500.

Ericsson notched the first Indy 500 victory for Chip Ganassi since Dario Franchitti in 2012. Ganassi won his fifth at the Brickyard as a solo team owner and sixth overall (having shared the 1989 win with Pat Patrick). Each of Chip Ganassi Racing’s five drivers led at least one lap Sunday, tying a record set by Andretti Autosport in 2013.

The race featured 38 lead changes among nine drivers — the third-highest total in Indy 500 history behind 68 in 2013 and 54 in 2016.

There were 27 cars running at the finish, tied for the second-highest total in Indy 500 history (the record is 30 set in 2021), and 22 cars on the lead lap, tying last year’s record.

Three-time W Series champ Jamie Chadwick joining Andretti in Indy NXT Series for 2023

3 Comments

Jamie Chadwick, the three-time W Series champion, will drive for Andretti Autosport in the Indy NXT Series next season.

Chadwick will make her debut in an American racing series in March, driving the No. 28 for Andretti Autosport with sponsorship from DHL. The 24-year-old will become the first female driver in 13 years to compete full time in the Indy NXT championship.

Chadwick joined the female free-to-enter W Series in its inaugural 2019 season, winning two races and the first of three consecutive championships. She has been a reserve driver for the Williams Formula One team and will continue in that role in 2023. She also has driven in the Extreme E Series.

Despite her success, Chadwick hasn’t landed a bigger ride in F3 or F2, and her break didn’t come until Michael Andretti contacted her and offered a test in an Indy NXT car.

The final three races of this year’s W Series schedule were canceled when funding fell through, but Chadwick still believes the all-female series was the right path for her.

“W Series has always been and will continue to be an opportunity to be racing for every female driver, so for my side, I looked at it while perhaps I would have liked to step up maybe earlier, at the same time being able to have that chance to race, get that experience, have that development, seat time… I was constantly learning,” Chadwick told The Associated Press.

“In that sense, I wasn’t frustrated at all. But on the flip side of it, now I’ve had that experience testing in the United States in Indy NXT and this is something I’m really excited about.”

Chadwick also is expected to have an enhanced role as a development driver next season with Williams, which chose American driver Logan Sargeant to fill its open seat on next year’s F1 grid.

“Andretti Autosport is proud to be supporting Jamie alongside DHL,” said Michael Andretti. “Jamie’s successful career speaks for itself, but Indy NXT gives Jamie the opportunity to continue her development in a new type of racing.

“We’ve turned out five Indy NXT champions over the years and look forward to continuing our role in developing new talent.”

Indy NXT is the new name of the rebranded Indy Lights Series, the final step on the ladder system before IndyCar.

Andretti will field two drivers next season in IndyCar that were developed in Indy NXT: Kyle Kirkwood, the 2021 champion, will return to Andretti after one season in IndyCar driving for A.J. Foyt Racing, and Devlin DeFrancesco is back for a second season.

Chadwick will be teammates in Indy NXT with Hunter McElrea and Louis Foster. She becomes Andretti’s second full-time female driver alongside Catie Munnings, who competes for Andretti United in the Extreme E Series.
