INDYCAR Reality Closer Than Ever for Malukas after IMS Test

David Malukas’ transition from Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES hit an impressive milestone Monday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway as he eyes a full-time ride in North America’s premier open-wheel series in 2022. It was also his second NTT INDYCAR SERIES test in as many weeks. Malukas has adapted well to the new car, but he insists the seamless transition is because of how well Indy Lights prepared him for the leap to the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. “Stepping in, it feels like a very similar car,” Malukas said. He said Monday his odds of racing in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES in 2022 were at “99.5 percent.”. Instead, Malukas said he will treat his rookie NTT INDYCAR SERIES campaign as he did his first Indy Lights season in 2019 by just having fun and embracing the position he’s in as a professional race car driver.
