Preston Pardus once again leading the field at Indy. This time in Xfiniti. Tremendous race, Preston managed a top ten finish on old tires ( 3 seconds slower than stickers) against the best in Xfiniti on stickers with multi million dollar budgets! Could not be prouder ! What a great race Preston! Congratulations to Preston, Dan ,Tony, Purkey and the rest of the team!

This is beyond cool!   Way to go Preston!   Any of us who have driven around Preston in the last 2 years know just how good a driver he is.   Awesome to see his talents used beyond just kicking most of our A— in SM!   Keep going!

Thanks for watching guys and thank you very much for the kind words! It was a really fun time out there and a good day for us! Wish we had stickers for the last run there, so I didn't look like a moving road block... It worked out though, we were running 13th before the last yellow, so we gained a few spots with that strategy call at the end there.

Pretty sure I watched the whole broadcast, and was surprised/disappointed I didn't hear that Preston was the only driver to previously win a race on the Indy Roadcourse (slightly different layout, of course).  Great job, and thanks for giving us someone to cheer for (JB, as well).

For those of us that have never driven anything that resembles a car like that can you provide some contrast between that and a 130HP 2400 pound Miata?

After starting DFL. Great job Team Pardus.

 

Let's not forget another former SM racer, 17th Josh Bilicki.

I did not watch much of the race but I happened to switch to the channel just in time to see pardus chase down bilicki and challenge for the lead with Josh fighting 5-6 pass attempt off. That was the most exciting and high quality racing I have seen in any Nascar series. Very nice to see that guy's from spec Miata can show how great our series is with their quality performances on national TV! Congrats to both Preston and Josh for great results!
