The average finishing position of the driver with the quickest race lap in the 17 Indy Pro 2000 races in 2020 was 5.3, and the fastest driver won only six races. That provides proof that being the quickest during the race doesn’t equate to victory.
However and conversely, having a strong race pace is almost always a requirement for winning. Only once in 17 race was the winner, not one of the three quickest drivers.
Simply put, race pace, especially in the junior formulas, provides us with a look at potential.
