Indy NXT championship leader Foster heads to Mid-Ohio

Championship leader Louis Foster heads to Mid-Ohio hoping to continue his strong form after winning four of the last five Indy NXT races.

Foster, 20, returns to the track where he took his first Indy NXT win last year, Mid-Ohio, where he and the team have good memories.

“It’s nice to return to where we got that first win in the Indy NXT by Firestone championship,” says Foster, who is backed by Copart, a global leader in online auto auctions.
“A first win in any series always feels like a landmark, and the whole Andretti Global team has been strong at this track in the past too.
“It’s very technical and really challenging with a good mix of slow, medium and high-speed corners.
“You have to treat it with respect.
“While it’s a place with good memories from last year, there’s no time for sentiment here. We can’t take our eyes off the ball. The team and I have been working really hard to make sure we continue this strong run of form.”

Foster won at the Indy road course and the Detroit street track, was second at Road America and then won both races of the double-header at Laguna Seca last month in devastating fashion.

He led both practices, took two poles, led every lap and won both races adding the fastest lap as well. As a driver, he couldn’t have had a better result over the weekend.

“Laguna Seca was a really strong weekend where everyone executed on their jobs," Foster adds. "When we do that, we know we can be right up there and fighting for the best results.
“All that goes away without continuing our work rate though. We had a lot of bad luck at the start of the season, but this run that we’re on really started with strong qualifying performances. That’s underpinned all of the success we’ve had recently.
“The plan will be the same as always, to qualify well and put ourselves in the position to fight for the most points available. There might be six races left but we’ll take it one at a time and try to maximise points as best as we can.”

In the UK you’ll be able to watch Louis race on Sky Sports Mix channel F1 with the race live on Sunday at 1615pm UK time.
