Straight-Talking Carter Guides Malukas to Fantastic Finish

Much was made of David Malukas’ late-race charge in Saturday night’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES race at World Wide Technology Raceway, but the 20-year-old rookie driver was quick to credit his spotter, former driver Pancho Carter, for the advice to try the high line. “Pancho (was) like, ‘Go get ‘em, last lap, there’s two (laps) left,’” said Malukas, the driver of the No. Carter, now 72, said Malukas, who is more reserved than most, is much like all the other drivers he has worked with over the years. Malukas said it wasn’t easy to adhere to that mandate initially. “(The relationship) started off a bit rough because he’s very aggressive,” Malukas said of Carter. Much was made of Malukas singing on the radio during the mundane part of Saturday’s race, but Malukas was smiling when he said Carter wasn’t much of a fan of it.
