McLaughlin Proves He’s Not Out Of It In Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. — Scott McLaughlin proved he is far from out of this year’s NTT IndyCar Series points race. But it was 2014 NTT IndyCar Series champion Will Power of Team Penske who opened up his lead by finishing second. McLaughlin scored his third career NTT IndyCar Series victory by defeating Power by 1.1792 seconds, both in Team Penske Chevrolets. McLaughlin started on the pole, the field got a very clean start and the Team Penske driver dominated the race. Power, who was running second at the time, pitted on the following lap. The leader, McLaughlin, pitted on Lap 49, giving Power the lead. When Rahal pitted on Lap 51 to end the pit stop sequence, McLaughlin was back in the lead by 4.470 seconds over Power. That was the halfway point of the race and the top five were McLaughlin, Power, O’Ward, Newgarden and Lundgaard. On Lap 70, McLaughlin led Power for 4.4024 seconds with O’Ward third. McLaughlin was the first out of the pits followed by Power and Newgarden.
