For the second consecutive week, Simon Pagenaud captured the victory in the NTT INDYCAR IRacing Challenge besting a hard challenge from Scott Dixon and a fierce wheel-to-wheel battle with teammate Will Power.
In what was a thrilling final 10 laps at IndyCar's virtual return at Twin Ring Motegi, last week's Michigan winner Simon Pagenaud, held off a hard charging Scott Dixon for his second consecutive IndyCar challenge win.
The defending Indy 500 winner, Simon Pagenaud was close on fuel at the end of the race, but saved just enough to take the checkered flag to win the Chevrolet 275. The win came as a surprise to the Frenchman.
Fuel strategy paid dividends for Simon Pagenaud as the reigning Indianapolis 500 champion led a Chevrolet sweep of the podium in the Chevrolet 275 INDYCAR iRacing Challenge at Michigan International Speedway.
The stars of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES will return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for a third exciting racing event in 2020. The INDYCAR Harvest GP will take place Saturday afternoon, Oct. 3 on the IMS road course.
