Indy NXT Portland: Foster wins, title contenders crash at Turn 1

Last year’s USF Pro 2000 champion Foster (Andretti Autosport) won the race by a margin of 7.8583 seconds over Nolan Siegel (HMD Motorsports). The race started with a major accident involving seven cars, as Victor Franzoni (Juncos Hollinger Racing) collided with Reece Gold (HMD Motorsports), causing a chain reaction crash. Championship leader Christian Rasmussen (HMD Motorsports) and second-place contender Hunter McElrea (Andretti Autosport) were among the drivers caught up in the pile-up. McElrea had to pit for repairs and finished three laps down.

Danial Frost (HMD Motorsports) quickly moved up to second place after the crash, with Siegel in third. Foster maintained his lead during the restart and stretched his advantage to over 5 seconds with 15 laps remaining. While Foster dominated the race, Bogle (HMD Motorsports) battled with Jagger Jones (Cape Motorsports) for fourth place. Eventually, Bogle’s pressure forced Jones into an error, and Bogle secured fourth position.

On the final lap, Siegel successfully passed his teammate Frost to claim second place. Foster’s victory was his second of the season, with Siegel and Frost joining him on the podium. Bogle finished fourth, and Rasmussen managed to salvage a fifth-place finish. Jamie Chadwick (Andretti Autosport) achieved a career-best sixth place, followed by Ernie Francis Jr. (HMD Motorsports with Force Indy) in seventh and Jame Roe (Andretti Autosport) in eighth. Matthew Brabham (Juncos Hollinger Racing) and Yuven Sundaramoorthy (Abel Motorsports) completed the top ten.
