When it comes to racing, anything can happen. This past weekend proves as evidence. With SmartStop stepped up, along with Carlin Racing, to give Sage Karam a seat in the Honda NTT IndyCar Series of Toronto this past weekend, while the results were not ideal, Sage’s actions spoke volumes to his dedication and commitment to racing. “We were very impressed with Sage’s steady progression throughout the Toronto race weekend and his willingness to learn and adapt. The fact that he hadn’t been on a street course since 2015 and was still able to come right out of the gate confident and constantly improving every session was extremely impressive,” said Team Principal Trevor Carlin. With that said, SmartStop and Carlin have decided to go at it once again.
Playing to Sage’s strengths, we’re loaded up and headed to the Iowa 300. In his five starts at Iowa Speedway dating back to 2010, Karam has never finished outside of the top three, recording four wins (USF2000 – 2010, Indy Pro 2000 – 2011 and 2012, Indy Lights – 2013) and scoring his first NTT IndyCar Series podium in 2015 with a third-place finish. “I’m really excited to be back again this weekend with Carlin and SmartStop Self Storage for the Iowa 300. Iowa Speedway has always been a good track for me in the past, so I’m really looking forward to getting to work there,” said Karam.
The Iowa 300 at Iowa Speedway will take place on Saturday, July 20th at 7:15 pm ET and will be televised on NBCSN.
