McElrea third in Indy Pro 2000 Championship
Monday 4th October, 2021 - 5:41pm
Hunter McElrea has finished third in the 2021 Indy Pro 2000 Championship after finishes of seventh and then sixth in the final event of the season, at Mid-Ohio.
McElrea qualified on pole for the latter of those two races by more than a second and would lead initially on a drying track.
He was passed by Braden Eves at a restart following a Caution period, but it was ultimately James Roe who took victory.
A day earlier, McElrea had to work hard for his seventh position from 10th on the grid, after a balance problem in qualifying.
The Pabst Racing driver nevertheless finished the season with three wins, seven podiums, and five poles, the latter being a high for the field.
Christian Rasmussen won the championship, ahead of Eves.
