Alex Palou etched his name next to another bullet point in NTT IndyCar Series history by winning Sunday’s (March 24) $1 Million Challenge at the Thermal Club. Palou won the pole for his heat race, won his heat race and controlled the main event from flag to flag en route to a $500,000 pay day for his No. 10 Chip Ganassi Racing team.

Scott McLaughlin finished second ahead of Felix Rosenqvist, who controlled his heat race from pole position just as Palou had earlier in the day.

“The car was amazing,” Palou said after the race. “The No. 10 crew and all the Chip Ganassi Racing guys did an amazing job. So yeah, super proud. All the weekend has been amazing. I was a bit surprised how the competitors treated the first 10 laps, saving tires. I was like ‘alright, that’s our game – I like it!’ So yeah, super proud of the No. 10 car and everybody at Chip Ganassi Racing.”
