2023 Writers’ Roundtable, Vol. 14: Unsung Texas Hero?

Today’s question: Winner Josef Newgarden and runner-up Pato O’Ward were the stars of the PPG 375 on April 2 at Texas Motor Speedway after combining to lead 224 of 250 laps. Who was the unsung hero of one of the wildest NTT INDYCAR SERIES races in recent memory?. The dude was going for it, and he just happened to have slight – and very slight at that – contact with Malukas. Paul Kelly: Agustin Canapino finishing 12th – ahead of reigning series champion Will Power and Indy 500 winners Simon Pagenaud, Alexander Rossi and Takuma Sato – in the first oval race of his life was mighty impressive. But I keep coming back to David Malukas as my choice, for many reasons. Malukas is quietly becoming one of the better oval racers in the series in just his second season, as evidenced by his fourth-place finish Sunday on the heels of finishing second last August at World Wide Technology Raceway.
