Foster steers clear of chaos, grabs second Indy NXT win at Portland
Louis Foster took full advantage of his pole position and secured a commanding victory at Portland. However, the opening lap chaos resulted in several drivers, including Hunter McElrea, being forced out of the race, leaving Christian Rasmussen with a 65-point lead with only two races remaining. Foster quickly created a comfortable gap between himself and McElrea, who was vulnerable to the other front-runners. The collision between Reece Gold and Victor Franzoni caused further chaos, ending the races of Jacob Abel and Josh Pierson as well. Foster continued to lead comfortably after the race restarted, while Rasmussen, despite having floor damage, managed to work his way up to sixth place. In the end, Foster secured a dominant victory, with Nolan Siegel finishing in second and Danial Frost in third. Christian Rasmussen finished fifth, maintaining his significant lead in the championship.
