Gabby Chaves edges Peter Dempsey to win Indy Lights race at Mid-Ohio
LEXINGTON, Ohio – Gabby Chaves pulled away from Peter Dempsey on a late restart to win the Indy Lights race at Mid-Ohio on Sunday.
Chaves started from the pole and had little trouble navigating the tricky 2.258-mile course for his first victory in the top IndyCar feeder series. The 20-year-old from Colombia led all 40 laps, finally breaking through after posting three runner-up finishes earlier in the season.
Jack Hawksworth came in third, followed by points leader Carlos Munoz and Zach Veach. Passing was at a premium at the swooping 13-turn test. The top five finishers matched the top five qualifying order on Saturday.
