3rd consecutive top 10 finish for Darren Manning

Jul 23rd, 2007

Darren Manning, driving the ABC Supply Co. car for A.J. Foyt Racing in the 2007 IndyCar Series, finished sixth in Sunday’s race at Lexington in Mid-Ohio.


It was Darren’s third consecutive top 10 finish and best result for the team this year on a road course.

Commenting on the race, Darren said: It was good. I caught Sam Hornish Jr in Turn 1, then slipped through that melee and followed Dixie (Scott Dixon). It was good running up front. We were cautious on our fuel strategy and that kind of hurt us on the first stop. We pitted a lap early and those guys got ahead of me, I caught up with them but I couldn't get around them. We still have a lot of potential with this car, and we're close on speed right now. We have a good starting point on the road courses and we can build from here.

Darren is currently 13th in the Championship standings on 238 points with five rounds still remaining.

Round 13 will take place at the Michigan International Speedway on the 4/5th August 2007.
