2023 Writers’ Roundtable, Vol. 36: What Armstrong Showed Us

Today’s topic: Chip Ganassi Racing’s Marcus Armstrong became the latest winner of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES’ Rookie of the Year Award, and he did so despite not competing in the five oval races in the 2023 season. Curt Cavin: What caught my attention isn’t necessarily what Armstrong did this season, it’s what he didn’t do. Otherwise, Armstrong finished the season with largely unscathed equipment, which is impressive. Armstrong finished with seven top-11 finishes in 12 races, completing all but four of his laps. To be fair, Armstrong didn’t compete in any of the five oval races, where race-ending trouble lurks in all four corners. Armstrong has the makings of a driver who could spend a decade or more in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and win races.
