Being thrown into the fire with the ‘Big Boys’ after riding high with an Indy Lights title at age 20 isn’t easy. But after taking his lumps, Josef Newgarden has finally broken through. The young racer, who’s been facing a less-than-ideal season with his Sarah Fisher Hartman crew, clawed his way to his first IndyCar podium finish in Baltimore this past Saturday – emphatically grabbing second place following a grueling battle. Smashing through extreme heat, six extended caution periods and multiple crashes, the young phenom found glory despite the extreme challenges before him. Starting in fifth, Josef fell back as far as 19th before powering his way forward through the field.
