Goncalves and Yacaman Poised for Podium!

How about that? After a rare hiccup late in the race, the #01 Ganassi car loses 1st and 2nd gear and drops back to P4. This has let the #6 Michael Shank Racing Ford/Riley which has Firestone Indy Lights drivers Gustavo Yacaman and Jorge Goncalves as co-drivers surge into P3. The team is now running P1 and P3 with their #8 and #6 cars, repsectively. Regardless of how this turns out, the two young Indy Lights drivers have really had their mettle tested over these past 23 hours and its been found worthy!

I'm at least as impressed with Felipe Nasr in that car, champion of British F3 who secured this as a prize drive through Sunoco.

I must admit that I didn't know anything about Mr. Nasr until today. Very cool, though, to see junior formula drivers running so strong! Hope he gets his ride in GP2 this season.
