Nannini Holds Off Foster At IMS For First Indy NXT Win

INDIANAPOLIS — Matteo Nannini drove to his first career Indy NXT by Firestone victory, holding off fellow series rookie Louis Foster in a compelling duel Saturday on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. Nannini led all 35 laps of the Indy NXT by Firestone Grand Prix despite unyielding pressure from Foster over the last quarter of the race. “I really wanted this win, mainly for the team,” Nannini said. Nannini jumped from 17th to fourth in the standings for IndyCar’s development series with the win. With 10 laps to go, Foster closed the gap to within three-tenths of a second. “I just tried to manage the car to the end of the race,” Nannini said.
