Round eleven of sixteen takes place at the famed Milwaukee Mile this weekend. The first practice takes place on Saturday the 11th at 4:00pm for 45 minutes; qualifying also takes place the same day at 6:30pm (all times Central). Warm Up/Systems Check will be from 10:15am – 10:45am on Sunday.
Last year’s winner, Zach Veach, is not back to defend, and actually none of last years podium finishers have returned this year (Matthew Brabham – 2nd and Gabby Chaves – 3rd). Gabby will be mixing it up with the big boys, having made the transition from Indy Lights to IndyCar.
If history has anything to say about this Sunday’s race, it’s that Milwaukee is a place where great drivers have gotten wins early in their careers. Guys like: Paul Tracy, Bryan Herta, Greg Moore, Scott Dixon, Townsend Bell, and even Sage Karam have all won Indy Lights (or ARS) races at Milwaukee. So who has a chance to make a name for themselves this weekend… Could it be Jack Harvey, the series current leader and only non-rookie in the top five of the standings? Jack is personally my choice for the win on Sunday, but it’s hard for me to leave out some of his Schmidt Peterson team like Scott Anderson and RC Enerson who both had terrific runs at the only other oval this season so far, which was Indianapolis. This year drivers will be battling for 100 laps or just over 100 miles for their chance to take home the win. In my opinion, the key to win this race is CONSISTENCY! This race consists of 400 corners (100 laps x 4 turns) and a screw-up in any one of the turns could cost a position or two. The drivers that start up front and drive the most consistent races will have the greatest chance of winning the race come Sunday.
