Sportsman of the Week Ending 5/28/2023
Memorial Day weekend was packed with sports action highlighted by a (scheduled) triple header of auto racing on Sunday. The cornerstone in the United States at least is The Greatest Spectacle in Racing, the Indianapolis 500. The cornerstone of the Indycar series, it's circled on racing fans calendars a year in advance. This year's race was clutch to the end, albeit a bit choppy. Josef Newgarden passed 2022 Champion Marcus Ericsson on the final Green Lap and eased to victory. After three red flags in the final sequence allowed one green lap to go, Newgarden did not miss on the opportunity. It is the American's first Indy 500 victory in his distinguished career and he will remember the kissing of the bricks at The Brickyard for a lifetime. Newgarden is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
