2022 Writers’ Roundtable, Vol. 10: First-Time Winner at Texas?

Today’s question: Scott McLaughlin earned his first career NTT INDYCAR SERIES victory Feb. 27 in the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding. I think we’re going to see a different version of the legendary driver on oval races this season. With five oval races on the 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES schedule, the numbers say Johnson should win one of those (20 percent). Paul Kelly: Remember the opening race of the Texas doubleheader last May, when Scott McLaughlin may have chased down and passed Scott Dixon for a victory in his first oval race if the race was five or 10 laps longer? There’s no reason that can’t happen again, so I’m looking at a long shot with no career oval starts, just like McLaughlin last year – Christian Lundgaard.
