SPEEDWAY, Ind. — For the 2nd time Simon Pagenaud has won the Grand Prix of Indianapolis. Pagenaud won the pole yesterday at the Speedway.
“I just feel very excited I’ve got a lot of fire inside of me right now and it’s keeping me rolling and going,” Pagenaud said. “All the hours in the gym to be fit enough to drive the Indycars these days, it’s alot of work and dedication. I feel like I want to go out there and do the best I can. I have the best team and the best car too.”
The points leader is an unstoppable force in Indycar right now. The Grand Prix was Pagenaud’s third straight victory.
“It’s certainly a little domination right now, which is incredible because the Indycar Series is so talented and incredible. I’m living the dream.”
Pagenaud will be looking for his first Indianapolis 500 win in a couple of weeks at the 100th running. After the race, Mike Berman went 1-on-1 with the 2016 Grand Prix of Indy winner.
