Leist wins Indy Lights Freedom 100

Matheus Leist led all 40 laps to win today's Freedom 100, the premier Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires race of the season, on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval. It was the 18-year-old Brazilian's first series victory.

The 2016 British Formula 3 champion driving for Carlin in Indy Lights, Leist won by 0.7760 of a second over Aaron Telitz of Belardi Auto Racing.

"I think we had just a perfect car today," said Leist, driver of the No. 26 Carlin Mazda/Dallara IL-15. "I thought that I would have the hardest race, definitely. We managed it throughout the whole race and now very happy. The car was perfect throughout the whole race, so we managed to keep in front."
