Risks Pay Off as O’Ward Back on Track with Second at Iowa

Pato O’Ward finished second behind Josef Newgarden in the HyVeeDeals.com 250 presented by DoorDash on Saturday at Iowa Speedway, but it may have felt more like a victory. O’Ward produced his best finish since he also placed second in the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on May 29. “Really solid points day for us today,” O’Ward said. So, on the next restart, O’Ward shunned that advice and took a chance. “In the next one I did the opposite, and it worked,” O’Ward said. “We were just extremely, extremely loose,” O’Ward said. “It was all about what can we do different to them to be able to just have a shot at getting by them,” O’Ward said. “I just think knowing now what to do, it’s really not too big of an issue,” O’Ward said.
