USF2000 driver Myles Rowe poses for a photo with young fans at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway last season.

ELKHART SEE – That’s a subtle difference.

Myles Rowe never felt like he didn’t belong on the track. But neither is he Not knew he was different.

Look around the paddock.

The NTT IndyCar Series has drivers from the United States, Canada and Mexico, from Europe and South America, from Australia, New Zealand and Japan. The three development series are similar.

But black Americans? Rowe in USF2000 and Ernie Francis in Indy Lights are the only ones Rowe knows of competing at Road America this weekend.

“Anything that seems like a challenge, I just do it upside down,” said Rowe, a three-time winner, who turns 22 this month.

Growing up karting, he idolized Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso and drivers who have made it since like Charles LeClerc, George Russell and Lando Norris, and studied on-kart videos of 2021 F1 Champion Max Verstappen .
