After a strong Barber weekend, Rinus VeeKay left 'in good position' for Indianapolis

Not only did Rinus VeeKay drive himself to the front of the NTT IndyCar Series pack this weekend, he is plunging into the flesh of the May schedule with a confidence he hasn’t felt in nearly a year.

The 21-year-old Ed Carpenter Racing driver started from pole position and finished third in Sunday’s Honda Alabama Grand Prix at Barber Motorsports Park, his best weekend since last May when he won at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

Next up: the GMR Grand Prix at IMS on May 14, then the Indianapolis 500 on May 29.
