Inside the Numbers: Children’s of Alabama Indy Grand Prix

Scott McLaughlin won the Children’s of Alabama Indy Grand Prix on Sunday, April 30 at Barber Motorsports Park, as Team Penske executed a three-stop strategy to perfection to beat the two-stopping Romain Grosjean of Andretti Autosport. McLaughlin earned his fourth NTT INDYCAR SERIES career victory and first this season in the No. 0: The number of teams that have placed a driver on the podium in all four races this season. That’s the sixth-smallest gap in the Fast Six in INDYCAR SERIES history, and three of the top six have come in the last 12 months (.2941 of a second, 2022 GMR Grand Prix; .3161, 2023 Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach). That’s the third time in four races this season a team has earned two of the three podium positions. 5: Career runner-up finishes for Grosjean, who still is searching for his first NTT INDYCAR SERIES victory. 26: Cars that finished on the lead lap, an INDYCAR SERIES record. 233: The record number of INDYCAR SERIES victories by Team Penske after McLaughlin’s victory, with 119 on an oval and 114 on a street or road course.
