Linus picked up yet another podium with a run to third place in Sunday’s race at Portland International Raceway, while a P2 finish for only remaining title challenger Matthew Brabham means the title race officially will carry on into the Laguna Seca finale.
Linus made a good start from fourth, but had to take evasive action when Christian Rasmussen went deep into Turn 1, instead dropping to fifth behind Brabham.
That became third when Danial Frost and Rasmussen then collided a few laps later and brought out the safety car.
After that, the order remained unchanged across the line, with Benjamin Pedersen scoring his maiden Indy Lights victory in front of Brabham and Linus.
Linus now leads the championship standings by 103 points from Brabham going into next week’s double-header finale.
LINUS: “P3 is OK. We just didn’t quite have the pace today, so congratulations to my team-mate Benjamin on his first win! I had a good start but was ran a bit wide by Rasmussen in Turn 1, which allowed Brabham past. After that, it was a pretty straightforward race.
“It would have been fun to seal the title here, but in all honesty it doesn’t really matter. We know we have a big lead and I’m already looking forward to Laguna Seca and trying to round off the season with a win there.”
