IndyCar’s runaway points leader Alex Palou says that his current purple patch is the best of his racing career.
The Chip Ganassi Racing-Honda driver scored three wins in his title-winning 2021 campaign, yet today at Mid-Ohio, the ninth round of the 2023 season, he scored his third consecutive win and his fourth in just the last five races. He has not finished outside the top five since an eighth place in the season opener at St. Petersburg.
Asked if he had ever enjoyed such a period in his career, the 26-year-old Spaniard said, “Not at all. No, absolutely not. Obviously in go-karts I had good couple of races, but I don’t think I had three big wins in a row or in the last five and always being up there.
“So, no, it’s the best moment of my career so far.”
