Chip Ganassi Racing’s Alex Palou in the No.10 The American Legion Honda was delighted after taking his first victory of the year in Saturday’s GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course.
The Spaniard, who started the race from third place on the grid, dominated the race, coming home 16s ahead of Pato O’Ward of Arrow McLaren. Speaking following the action, he commented saying:
What an amazing job from the #10 crew, and our first win with [sponsor] American Legion. We knew we had a fast car right from the start of the race weekend. We were P1 [in practice] yesterday and the car’s been amazing all weekend. Once we knew we were starting on [Firestone] reds, I think we knew we could fight.
Palou’s victory has propelled him to the top of the championship.
