Sage Karam took his first victory in the Firestone Indy Lights Series at the Milwaukee Mile. Karam made the race-winning pass on erstwhile dominant force Zach Veach on lap 57 of the 100-lap race. From there, the Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver didn’t look back.
Veach fell to third by the finish behind his Andretti Autosport teammate and series points leader Carlos Munoz. Munoz almost had a chance on the only restart of the race on lap 97, but with a lapped car in-between he and Karam, the American was able to launch just fine.
Veach had got the jump from second on the grid and while his car worked great in clean air, he struggled in traffic. He also burned his tires off early in the race and with a loss of grip, he could not maintain the same pace.
Gabby Chaves finished fourth ahead of Juan Pablo Garcia, with Peter Dempsey falling to sixth after making late, light contact with the Turn 2 wall.
Jorge Goncalvez and Jack Hawksworth rounded out the runners in the eight-car field.
Munoz leads the points 207-189 over Karam. Karam’s week also included his signing with GP Sports Management, the same group that represents Dario Franchitti, for his own career management.
