No. 28 INDEX INVEST DALLARA
  • STARTED 2nd // FINISHED 2nd
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 1 (486 pts.)
  • OF NOTE: Clinched the 2019 Indy Lights Championship yesterday after finishing fourth in Race 1 // Won seven races in 2019, only missing the podium three times
"I am going to remember this day for the rest of my life. Truly magical to only miss three podiums, win the Freedom 100 and the Championship for Andretti Autosport. Very happy for the team and everyone involved. Congrats to Rinus [VeeKay], he did a great job all season. Been a pleasure fighting with him and look forward to competing against him in IndyCar. I think over the past four years we made each other better drivers fighting on track. We didn’t have the speed for him today but I am sure there will be more battles again in the future."

 

No. 27 CYBERSECURITY DALLARA
  • STARTED 4th/ / FINISHED 4th
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 5 (355 pts.)
  • OF NOTE: Battled early in the race with teammate [Ryan] Norman for the fourth position and passed Norman for the position in the hairpin on Lap 7.
"A great race today, finished fourth overall. I got hit by Ryan [Norman] on the start and fell back but was able to make my way back up to my starting spot. We had great pace and a great car, I can’t thank Andretti Autosport enough for that. Honestly, it has been a great year. Whatever happens next year, I am super grateful for the team and incredibly thankful for all my partners: SailPoint, CyberArk, Optiv and Palo Alto Networks."

 

No. 48 THREE CHORD DALLARA
  • STARTED 5th // FINISHED 5th
  • CHAMPIONSHIP: 4 (359 pts.)
  • OF NOTE: Held onto the fifth position even with pressure behind from [Dalton] Kellett
"Overall, the weekend was a little rough for us. We were struggling to find pace. We had a good start but lost pace and fell back a spot. Hard not walking away with third in the championship, we moved back to fourth. Really have to thank Andretti Autosport for everything they have done for me in the past three years, they have basically become family. They have given me great race cars, great experiences inside and outside the car, so just really want to thank them. Not sure where my journey will take me next but I know I am looking forward to it."
