Cole Whitt was back behind the wheel of the No. 44 Takagi Tankless Water Heaters Camry Saturday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. After a two week hiatus, Whitt quickly got back in the groove as he took to the historical 2.5-mile track for the 2nd Annual Indiana 250. Whitt started the event 22nd and was quick to gain positions during the 250-mile race. Battling as high as 15th, Whitt raced hard in the final laps finishing 17th.
“I can’t thank my sponsor Takagi enough for their support this past weekend,” said Whitt. “Track position at Indy is very important; once we found a balance in the race car it was too late to make up many positions.”
Saturday afternoon’s NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway was the seventh race for Whitt with TriStar Motorsports. Whitt’s 17th place finish helped boost the No. 44 team one spot to the 20th position in the NASCAR Nationwide Series Owner Points Standings. This weekend Whitt will make his fourth series start at Iowa Speedway for Saturday’s US Cellular 250.
