Ericsson Back on Top after Bump, Strong Drive to Second

It was mission accomplished for Marcus Ericsson on Sunday at Road America as he powered through contact with his teammate to finish second in the Sonsio Grand Prix at Road America presented by AMR and regain the NTT INDYCAR SERIES points lead. Ericsson has a 27-point lead over 2014 NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Power and a 32-point gap to two-time series champion Josef Newgarden in third, who won Sunday’s race. “That was one of the goals going into Road America, to regain that lead,” Ericsson said. Ericsson started the race fourth for his best qualifying effort of 2022, but he quickly got off to a rough start. On Lap 4, Ericsson made a pass for third on his teammate Alex Palou. Ericsson regretted the contact with his teammate but said his attempted pass was a fair racing move. “I just think he was trying to win the race on the third lap.
