Rasmussen peaking at the right time in Indy NXT title fight
Christian Rasmussen is emerging as a strong contender for the Indy NXT championship, securing his fourth win of the season and third consecutive victory. After switching from Andretti Autosport to HMD Motorsports for his sophomore season, Rasmussen has showcased his exceptional talent with commanding wins on various types of tracks. Alongside his wins at Barber Motorsports Park, Iowa Speedway, the Nashville Grand Prix, and the World Wide Technology Raceway, he has also achieved two victories in 2022 and multiple podium finishes, solidifying his position as a top driver in IndyCar’s training category. Rasmussen attributes his success to being an all-around driver and the excellent package provided by HMD Motorsports, which boasts a strong team with a wealth of data. With a 51-point lead over his closest competitor, Hunter McElrea, Rasmussen has the opportunity to make it nearly impossible for anyone to surpass him in the upcoming races. The next race will take place in Portland, and fans can tune in on Peacock at 1:15 pm ET on Sunday.
