Fort Worth, TX – What a run its been for Harding Racing so far in 2017. The newly formed team is showing the other teams that are on the fence about joining the Verizon IndyCar Series, that it doesn’t take long to sustain success.
In their first race, the 101st Running of the Indianapolis 500, Gabby Chaves started 25th and finished ninth. It was Chaves’ third career IndyCar top 10 and the teams first in their first career start.
Then, in their second race, Saturday night’s Rainguard 600 at the Texas Motor Speedway, Chaves once again came away with a top 10 result.
Chaves, brought his No. 88 Chevrolet home fifth for his best career IndyCar finish, making Harding two-for-two on top 10’s in their young career.
Ironically, half of Chaves’ four top 10’s in IndyCar competition have come at Texas. He also finished 10th with Bryan Herta Autosport in 2015.
The next slated race for this team is another superspeedway at Pocono in August. If it keeps going like this, Chaves could end up with a third straight top 10, likely a podium at this rate.
Top 10 at Indy, top five at Texas, Pocono…
Chaves and Harding Racing are showing just how good then really can be.
