Scheckter Takes 8th Place at Chicagoland Speedway
Nearly a month removed from his last race, MonaVie driver Tomas Scheckter finished in eighth place at the PEAK Antifreeze and Motor Oil Indy 300 at Chicagoland Speedway on August 29, 2009.
Scheckter had a flawless start, moving from 14th to 12th position in the first lap. Driving a good, consistent race with near perfect pit stops, he earned the fastest lap of the race on lap 193 (218.3 mph).
"It was a great race for the MonaVie car," Scheckter said. "The MonaVie crew did a great job, so I just have to thank the team. It's great to be back and to have a really good performance [after having two races off]. Good job to everyone on the team."
