McLaughlin Marches into May with Mighty Momentum

Scott McLaughlin’s race-winning performance in last weekend’s Children’s of Alabama Indy Grand Prix at Barber Motorsports Park might have sent an ominous message to his NTT INDYCAR SERIES competitors. It wasn’t just that McLaughlin won that race, it’s how he did it. By Lap 31, he was shadowing Newgarden, who had become the race leader through the pit cycles. McLaughlin said he was proud of the way he was “picking people off.”. “It was getting pretty tough in the middle (of the race) when we were making passes, (dealing with) lapped traffic, whatnot,” he said. Finally, on Lap 72, McLaughlin capitalized on Grosjean slipping wide in Turn 5, and he was never headed. “It’s not about winning every race in this racing series,” he said.
