2018 Sonoma: Marco Andretti IndyCar Race Recap


QUALIFYING.
Saturday afternoon the field of 25 Indy cars took to Sonoma’s 2.385-mile racetrack to set the grid for Sunday’s finale event. For Marco Andretti, it was all eyes on the fight Firestone Fast Six. Without ever dropping out of the top 10, Andretti advanced to the final round and a chance at the Pole. When the time expired, Andretti had solidified his fourth-place starting position.

 
CHASING THE CHECKERS.
U.S. Concrete / Curb driver Marco Andretti showed contender speed all day Sunday, starting from fourth and going on to capture a 42nd career top-five finish in fifth. Andretti climbed spots in the points standings to place comfortably inside the top 10 in the championship, leaving the season in an eighth-place tie.

NEXT.
The 2019 IndyCar Series season will again consist of 17 races, opening for the ninth straight year with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on March 10. With additions of Circuit of the Americas and Laguna Seca, the season will stretch through September 22.

IN HIS WORDS.

NO. 98 U.S. CONCRETE / CURB HONDA

STANDING / POINTS
8 / 392 [tied w/ Rahal]

“I’m very pleased to be this quick on a road course here. Not a bad finish for the last race at Sonoma, I would’ve liked it to have gone a bit better. I think if we went with reds early on I think we could have kept [Simon] Pagenaud behind us. [Alexander] Rossi was amazingly quick and we tried to make it easy on him out of the pits and give him a shot. It was pretty cool of them, they knew I gave them the position, and they gave it back there at the end, so we were able to come out with a top five. Congrats to Ryan for closing out the year with a win. We’re ready for 2019.”
