The 85-lap race, bookended by full course cautions, saw many different strategies playing out through the field. But it was the strategy of those that led the field to the green flag that prevailed, earning their podium-finishes.
The team quickly heads back to Indianapolis to turn the cars around and prepare for the return of night racing at Iowa Speedway next weekend – the first Saturday night race since 2015.
No. 98 UNIFIRST / CURB HONDA
STARTED 7th // FINISHED 10th
CHAMPIONSHIP: 15th (194 pts.)
Marco was spun on Lap 1, but managed to drive away unscathed, avoiding the collection of cars that happened just after being spun.
He drove a clean, steady race for the remainder of the event to collect a 105th-career top 10 // Gained one position in the championship standings.
“It was a decent day for the UniFirst team. We salvaged something after we got spun by [Graham] Rahal on the start. To salvage a top 10 after being spun isn’t bad. We had higher hopes, but we got spun on the start.
On to Iowa.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
