Don’t ‘Sleep’ On Marcus Ericsson

INDIANAPOLIS — It’s hard to call a driver who qualified fifth for the 106th Indianapolis 500 a “sleeper pick.”. But when that driver has a six-time NTT IndyCar Series champion and 2008 Indianapolis 500 winners, the defending IndyCar Series champion, a seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion and a 2013 Indianapolis 500 winner and 2004 IndyCar Series champion as teammates, Marcus Ericsson tends to get overshadowed. “I thought the run was really good, it felt really good, and the car was really good,” Ericsson said. “But I think what happens at least at Chip Ganassi Racing if not the other IndyCar teams, I don’t know the other IndyCar teams in this way, but we’re very unselfish, and we really work hard for these drivers as well as the team members to be totally unselfish about what they do. This year to have five cars and five such strong cars, it’s been really good so far.
