Friday’s rain interrupted Carb Day at Indy, but it also delayed the Indy Lights Freedom 100 race. Due to the rain delay, those of us waiting anxiously for the ESPN broadcast were left out to dry. If you weren’t able to be in attendance this weekend, Dave Lewandowski painted a very exciting picture in his race report. The spectators couldn’t have asked for much more.

Team E’s driver and JOWT Top Prospect, Bobby Wilson set a new track record with a lap at 191.412 mph. Although I’m not sure if the lap will be officially recognized since it was set during the race rather than qualifying. Either way, it’s still an impressive feat. Dillon Battistini ran a good race and stayed out front for the win.
