0 Comments

IndyCar Iowa results, points after Race 2: Pato O’Ward took advantage of Josef Newgarden’s crash with 65 laps remaining, winning the Hy-Vee Salute to Farmers 300 at Iowa Speedway for his second victory this season.

O’Ward won by 4.24.76 seconds over Will Power, and Scott McLaughlin finished third as Chevrolets swept the podium.

“We knew that we had a great car,” O’Ward said. “So, it was all about just capitalizing and being there when it counted. The guys did a great job calling when we had to pit. It was very, very enjoyable.”

Scott Dixon finished fourth in his No. 9 Dallara-Honda, and Chip Ganassi Racing teammate Jimmie Johnson rounded out the top five with a career-best finish in IndyCar.

Ganassi’s Marcus Ericsson finished sixth to maintain first in the championship standings, leading by eight points over Power with five races remaining.

Aiming for a weekend sweep of Iowa after winning Saturday, Newgarden slammed the Turn 4 SAFER Barrier while leading on Lap 235 of 300. He led a race-high 148 laps and was poised to take the points lead with his fifth victory of 2022.

“It was a bit of a shock,” Newgarden told NBC Sports’ Dave Burns. “Man, I want to cry. So sad for my team. I don’t know what happened. It was a good run. I feel terrible for us. I don’t know; something went wrong there.”

Newgarden fainted after the race and was evaluated overnight at a Des Moines hospital. He was released Monday and will be need to be cleared by IndyCar medical staff Thursday to race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
