Justin Wilson wins at Texas.

Postby stradlin21 » Mon 11 Jun, 2012 10:37 am

Justin Wilson took his first ever oval victory in IndyCar at Texas on Saturday night. As the laps wound down it looked like Graham Rahal was cruising to victory but he hit the wall in turn four with just over two laps to go. Although he carried on with his damaged car Wilson was able to close up and passed him on the backstretch, Rahal managed to salvage 2nd.
It was a huge victory for Wilson and his Dale Coyne team who had been solid all night and found themselves running top 3 with 40 laps to go. Earlier on, Scott Dixon who lead 133 laps got loose and hit the wall and Takuma Sato hit the inside wall coming out of turn two just when he was starting to move forward.
Rubens Barrichello never made it on the starting grid and the lone Lotus of De Silvestro was pulled out of the race minutes before the start.
All in all a great win for Justin, I really think it’s fitting that the first race on a 1.5 mile oval since the death of Dan Wheldon was an Englishman.
On to Milwaukee.
