O’Ward Feels Spirit of ‘Hispanic Heritage Month’ All Year

Today begins a month-long celebration of Hispanic Heritage, but Pato O’Ward said he experienced such excitement throughout the recently completed NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. At each of the 17 races this year, the driver of Arrow McLaren’s No. Garza led 13 laps in the 1981 race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and became the first driver from his country to win the prestigious Rookie of the Year Award. The excitement over Fernandez’s participation led to series races staged in Monterrey from 2001 through 2006. O’Ward, the 2018 INDY NXT by Firestone champion, has won four races in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, finished second in last year’s Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge, and has finished in the top four of the standings three of the past four years.
