Action-packed is an underestimate to describe today's Freedom 100 presented by Cooper Tires. Oliver Askew crossed the historic yard of bricks just 0.0067 seconds ahead of teammate Ryan Norman to claim his first Freedom 100 victory.
 
Rookie Robert Megennis sat on pole for his the second time of his Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires career and was running in the top four until contact was made with Toby Sowery. Megennis spun until was hit again by Sowery straightening his car and allowing him to continue in the race. Jarett Andretti ran a clean 40-lap race and gained five spots from his starting position.

I want to thank EVO and Three Chord Bourbon and everyone who has supported me. We’re just going to carry this momentum into the rest of the season. It was a great race, definitely happy about it, but sad at the same time. To finish 1-2, it was something that we had planned out before the race.
