LONG BEACH, California – Winner of three races during the 2021 season, including the final two of the championship, Colton Herta, was seen multiple times on Sunday evening letting fans know that he won the race that afternoon. “Did you see the guy who crossed the finish line first?” said Herta to a fan wearing a Alex Palou jersey, “Me, baby. Not that bum over there holding that big ass, dumb Astor Cup!”

“Three race wins this season my dude, including today!” shouted Herta as he chased a nine year old down Seaside Way towards Turn 9.
