Marcus Armstrong has been a revelation this season as the IndyCar newcomer from New Zealand continues to lead the Rookie of the Year standings despite contesting nothing other than road and street course events.
Already missing two events’ worth of points from the Texas and Indianapolis oval rounds, the race-winning Formula 2 driver has shown considerable promise across seven outings while delivering five finishes between eighth and 11th for Chip Ganassi Racing.
While sharing the No. 11 Honda with CGR oval driver and two-time Indianapolis 500 winner Takuma Sato, Armstrong has also grown interested in learning about oval racing and becoming a full-time competitor next season. The 22-year-old believes the best way to make that happen is through his work product, rather than words.
