It was an up and down weekend for Red Deer racing phenom Parker Thompson.

Racing in the third round of the USF2000 Championship at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Thompson was involved in an unfortunate opening lap incident on day one (Friday). He went on to a 19th place finish after starting the race in 11th.

However, Parker and his #90 car bounced back on Saturday. Starting the race in 10th, a fine mix of strategy and speed led to a 4th place finish.

The results leave Thompson fourth in the USF2000 season standings with 100 points, 88 back of first place and 14 ahead of the next best driver.

Next up on the circuit are races at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin June 23 to 25.
