'It's been an amazing season' – Palou on his second IndyCar title
Alex Palou, who won his second IndyCar championship with a victory in Portland, credited his success to Chip Ganassi Racing and their fast cars at all tracks. He has won six of the last 16 IndyCar races, with Ganassi winning three more thanks to Scott Dixon and Marcus Ericsson. Palou is the first driver in 16 years to secure the title before the series finale, and his only competition for the crown was his teammate Dixon. He described the season as amazing and expressed confidence going into the final race. Despite qualifying fifth, Palou knew he had a fast car and believed he could win the race. He emphasized the importance of his absent strategist and team manager, Barry Wanser. Palou’s future with Ganassi seems secure, and he remains focused on his racing career.
