Autobahn Represented in Indianapolis

May 17, 2024 | Racing News

Autobahn was represented well at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway through its members via Evan Cooley and Jordan Missig. Both were planning on making their debut in their respective series on the 2.4-mile road course. Cooley running in USF 2000 for Exclusive Autosport and Missig running in Indy NXT for Abel Motorsports.

Cooley would be the first to hit the track and made an impact early topping the charts in his very first qualifying session taking his first career Continental Tire Pole Award. He would start on the Pole for both races and was fighting for the win all weekend long. He finished on the Podium in his first race coming home 3rd and was fighting for the Win heading into the last until eventual contact would ensue in Turn 1 but would recover quickly to come home in P4.

On the other side of the Paddock was Jordan Missig who was still coming to grips with his new Dallara IL15 Chassis. Missig who has raced at IMS before, got up to speed quickly during the lone practice session that they were given before going into qualifying where he would end up starting 16th for both races. Race 1 would see Missig make his way up as far as 10th before a late race incident took him out of contention. Race 2 would be a green to checkered race with Missig gaining 3 spots to come home in 13th.
