(Wild Virtual Finish at Indy Saturday)
IndyCar’s iRacing Challenge concluded with a controversial and wild finish at the virtual Indianapolis Motor Speedway Saturday. Team Penske’s Scott McLaughlin earned the victory after two crashes involving the leaders in the final half mile of the First Responders 175. Marcus Ericsson led going into the final corner and was crashed by second place Pato O’Ward. Oliver Askew was then on his way to victory when second place Santino Ferrucci appeared to intentionally crash into him just yards from the yard of bricks. McLaughlin drove through the smoke for his second victory in the six race iRacing Challenge.
