After a successful season opener on the oval at Homestead, Lionheart changes focus to its first road event of the 2020 Season. This season the competition will be tougher than ever with the amount of talented road course drivers on the roster.
Last season saw Adam Blocker win 7 of the 9 road course events on his way to his 2nd Lionheart IndyCar Series championship. It was an impressive display of road course dominance that has seemingly been the key to securing every Lionheart championship since the league’s formation back in 2014.
This season several rookies entering Lionheart this year are poised to give Blocker a real fight for the Road Championship presented by SimXperience. Adam Frazier, Arjuna Kankipati, Nathan Lewis, Richard Hollyday and Josh Chinn are all set to make a statement early in the season. The path to the 2020 Championship could start at the Glen.
Series veterans are definitely looking to make a statement of their own. Real world IndyCar driver Sage Karam enters the Glen as the defending race winner and picked up 2 road course wins in 2019. Sage also holds the Lionheart race lap record at Watkins Glen. Andrew Kinsella, George Sandman, Michael Goodman, Tyler Graaf, Stephen Laarkamp, Connor Harrington and Brian Yaczik are also very quick on the road. Brian Beard showed perhaps the biggest improvement in pace on the road courses during the 2019 Season is also looking for solid runs this year.
Connor Harrington enters the round 2 event with the points lead after his 2nd win in the series and a lot of confidence. Harrington has shown to have a fast pace on road courses during his Lionheart career. Securing podium finishes at Watkins, Detroit, and Laguna Seca as well as a trio of top 5’s at Mosport, Barber and Road America. Harrington has proven to be a threat on the road courses and is hungry for his first official win when turning left and right.
