Chip Ganassi Racing’s Marcus Ericsson in the No.8 Huski Chocolate Honda made his case for a new contract with the team at the inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix in Nashville on Sunday coming from the back and an airborne moment to win the race.

The Swede not only took his second win of the season but he also led a Chip Ganassi Racing 1-2 with defending series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda coming home in second place.

Speaking following Sunday’s race Ericsson, who joined Ganassi last season from Schmidt Peterson Motorsports said that he wants to stay with the team next season.

Ericsson has now claimed more points in the championship since Detroit than any other driver on the grid and heads to the Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix of Indianapolis this weekend in fifth place in the championship, just 79 points behind his teammate and championship leader Alex Palou.
