CHASING THE CHECKERS
Action-packed is an under statement to describe Friday's Freedom 100 presented Cooper Tires. Oliver Askew crossed the historic yard of bricks just 0.0067 seconds ahead of teammate Ryan Norman to claim his first Freedom 100 victory.
Rookie Robert Megennis sat on pole for his the second time of his Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires career and was running in the top four until contact was made with Toby Sowery. Megennis spun until was hit again by Sowery straightening his car and allowing him to continue in the race.
Jarett Andretti ran a clean 40-lap race and gained five spots from his starting position.
