Christian Bogle Completes Mid-Ohio and Heads to Iowa Speedway

Share this Post

The INDY NXT by Firestone season is in full swing, and HMD Motorsports driver Christian Bogle is ready for his first INDY NXT oval event of 2024. After scoring his best finish of the season at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in June, he claimed another decent result at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course before heading into his first oval race of 2024 this weekend.

Bogle, who finished 11th at Mid-Ohio after running in ninth early on, one position better than his qualifying result, now shifts his focus to Iowa Speedway and the first of four oval races this season. Bogle has shown speed on short oval tracks in the past few years and hopes to use his experience to his advantage on the .875-mile tri-oval track this year.

Running inside the top-ten before eventually finishing 11th on track, Bogle has moved into the top-ten in points as he sits in a three-way tie for ninth. Looking to move into sole possession of that position this weekend, the driver of the #7 entry is looking forward to turning left.

“We qualified well at Iowa last year, but ran into some trouble in the race,” explains Bogle. “We’ll look to do the same this year and hopefully be in contention for my first podium. I enjoy short oval tracks and am comfortable at Iowa Speedway, so we’ll use the momentum from the last few races to claim the best season result so far.”

Bogle will gear back up for a quick turnaround in the first oval race of the 2024 season at Iowa Speedway in the Iowa 100 taking place Saturday, July 13.  The full weekend schedule can be found below. A live stream for the race can be found on Peacock TV or INDYCAR LIVE.
