Linus took another podium to wrap up the Portland Indy Lights meeting on Sunday, finishing third in Race 2.
Linus started on the front row alongside David Malukas, and used the advantage of new tyres to try and pass his team-mate in the early stages.
It all came to a head when Linus attempted a move down the inside into the Festival Curves a few laps in, with both GRG/HMD drivers running deep and instead dropping back behind eventual winner Kyle Kirkwood as the Andretti driver swept around the outside (pictured below).
From there, the order stood across the line as Kirkwood clinched victory from Malukas and Linus, with Benjamin Pedersen and Robert Megennis completing the top five.
LINUS: “It’s been a good weekend. Perhaps I was hoping for a bit more today, running on a fresh set of tyres, but unfortunately I couldn’t get around David in those critical early laps and instead we both lost out to Kyle. It was obviously not the outcome we wanted from a team perspective, but we raced fair and hard and I really respect both of them.
“At the end of the day, we’re leaving here with two podiums and have reinforced third in the championship, so I have to be relatively pleased with that and I’m already looking forward to Laguna Seca next weekend.”
