Scott McLaughlin wins IndyCar race from his bedroom

Kiwi driver Scott McLaughlin’s has won the second round of the IndyCar virtual champs.

The virtual race was held on Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama. However, McLaughlin completed the race from the comfort of his own home in Australia.

He had to get up at 4am (New Zealand time) to compete in the 45-lap race. 

The two-time Supercars champion started the race in eighth and took the lead with six laps to go, finishing ahead of Penske teammate Will Power. 

“Pretty awesome to win this week’s Indycar Challenge,” McLaughlin tweeted. “We put a fair bit of work in during the week, working out a strategy and it paid off.”

McLaughlin was an invited guest by IndyCar to participate in the iRacing Series, which features current drivers, including fellow Kiwi Scott Dixon. 

Dixon, who did not compete in the first race last weekend, finished 16th after spinning out during the race.
