McLaughlin finished second in the Genesys 300 NTT IndyCar Series race at Texas Motor Speedway Saturday night.
The rookie driver turned in an incredible performance. McLaughlin would show good speed early on and be an early-race mover in the running order. He and the No. 3 team would work the correct fuel/pit strategy and gain several spots on pit road. The final laps would see McLaughlin work his way up to second-place but was unsuccessful in tracking down leader, Scott Dixon
. The runner-up finish was his first podium of the season in just his third event.
