No. 6 of 2022: McLaughlin Emerges as Super Sophomore Star

Scott McLaughlin entered his second NTT INDYCAR SERIES season optimistic he could make a big leap in performance, and he was on target. After leading only five laps as a Team Penske rookie in 2021 – that equated to .002 percent of his laps completed — the three-time Australian Supercars champion not only led more laps (433), he converted many of them into three race wins. McLaughlin finished with three race wins, three NTT P1 Awards as a top qualifier, led nearly 19.6 percent of his laps and finished fourth in the point standings. “I’ve had so many great moments with this team, from winning three Supercars championships to winning the Bathurst 1000 to making my first INDYCAR start. “Now, we are competing at a high level, winning races and poles and even competing for the series championship.
