Spencer Pigot, who became Ed Carpenter Racing’s full-time driver this year, says that scoring his first podium in the IndyCar Series was a relief and was simply the result of a strong car and a day where “everything went right.”
The 2015 Indy Lights champion made his three Mazda scholarship IndyCar outings with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing in the first quarter of the season, but joined Carpenter’s team after Indy as the road/street course driver in the #20 car, sharing with the team owner who races ovals only.
For 2018, Carpenter replaced JR Hildebrand with Pigot as the full-timer in the #21 car, and yesterday Pigot continued ECR’s strong form at Iowa Speedway. The #21 car won there in 2016 with Josef Newgarden, finished second last year with Hildebrand and then second again on Sunday.
Although Pigot qualified only 18th, his pass on Scott Dixon on Lap 54 got him into the top 10, following the first round of pitstops he ran fifth, and from Lap 112 of the 300-lap race, he was into the top three.
Thereafter he had two separate battles with eventual winner James Hinchcliffe over what was then second place, slipped to fourth behind Robert Wickens in the final stint but landed the runner-up finish when Newgarden and Wickens ceded track position under the final yellow.
"It's definitely a great feeling to be on the podium," he said afterward. "I think that at certain times the past couple seasons we've had the pace to challenge for the podium, and one thing or another happened and it didn't quite work out, so it's nice to have it all go smoothly and we were able to really capitalize on everything that was going on.
