After a few races with NASCAR at the forefront, IndyCar stars shined in Music City. Three drivers wound up inside the top 5 in the Main Event while both Marco Andretti and Paul Tracy ran fifth or better in all three races.
For Marco, it was a “better back end” that doomed him against Labonte. But it was still a great night for the former IndyCar star, a second straight runner-up finish in the Main Event that’s left him Labonte’s main contender for the title. It’s also given hope that his career will regenerate elsewhere when SRX is over: NASCAR.
“I’m talking to some people about Xfinity,” he said Saturday night. “If I can hang with these guys, maybe I can hang in Xfinity. It would be fun.”
