Turbocharged Triple Threat
Hunter-Reay's impressive streak is amazing in itself, considering the tough competition in these competitions. But his wins somewhat resemble a triathlon as they occurred in three different disciplines.
The venerable Milwaukee course, in the middle of the Wisconsin State fairgrounds, is a traditional flat oval.
Toronto, like Baltimore, is a street race. These are much different than the ovals, particularly when passing.
Hunter-Reay has another distinction -- he's the first American driver in six years to win three in a row.
So things are really looking up in the Andretti paddock as we count down to our own major production here in Baltimore. Hard to believe, but construction on the race course will be starting in three weeks!!
