New Zealand driver Scott McLaughlin has put a difficult week behind him to win the latest IndyCar race, the Alabama Grand Prix.

Only a few days ago McLaughlin,30 was disqualified from the season opener on a mechanical 'push to pass' technicality where he had placed third.


To win in Alabama and defend his title at the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham was a major boost and saw him lead from pole, his sixth of his career for 58 of the 90 laps.

Throughout the race he once again tussled with team mate Will Power who was second across the line.

It's definitely one of my best drives in terms of just execution and just knocking out the laps," McLaughlin said.

Of the other kiwis in the race, Marcus Armstrong was ninth and Scott Dixon 15th. Although

Dixon has lost the championship lead to Colton Herta and has dropped to fourth

McLaughlin has moved from last up to ninth overall with Armstrong now 19th.
