Ericsson Overcame Slow Start, Doubt To Become Frontrunner

Marcus Ericsson wasn’t always crouched in front of the Borg-Warner Trophy, eyeing his sterling silver likeness on the iconic Indianapolis 500 winner’s trophy as he did last week. In fact, just two years ago, the depth of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES was challenging him in an unforeseen way. In Ericsson’s first two INDYCAR seasons – a span of 30 races – he led a mere 10 laps and stood on the podium just once. “My first two seasons were pretty tough, and the first year was really tough. Last year, Ericsson led nearly five times as many laps as he had in his first two NTT INDYCAR SERIES seasons combined, and he won the biggest race in the world. “Years 3 and 4 here have been really, really strong for me, and I’ve been running up front,” Ericsson said.
