Paddock Buzz: Heartbroken Newgarden Remains Resolute

It was the second time in as many races that Newgarden relinquished the lead with less than three laps remaining. Newgarden has led 99 of the last 125 laps in NTT INDYCAR SERIES competition between his 67 of 70 laps led in Detroit and 32 of 55 Sunday. But I feel like that’s just the way you go in INDYCAR. After leading six laps in his NTT INDYCAR SERIES debut, Formula One veteran Kevin Magnussen had a disappointing end to his day, finishing 24th after a mechanical problem took him out of the race. He led Laps 49 and 50 of the 55-lap race before pitting and relinquishing the lead to Newgarden. “Honestly, it was a really enjoyable race,” Askew said. It was the second race in a row that Askew filled in for an NTT INDYCAR SERIES athlete, as he hopped in the No.
