By David Morgan, Associate Editor INDIANAPOLIS – Daniel Suarez was in the thick of the fight for the win Sunday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but will have to wonder “What if?” after a late race pit road snafu took him out of contention. Starting on pole, the driver of the No. 99 Trackhouse Racing Chevrolet was a part of a three-driver trio that dominated the day, along with Michael McDowell and Chase Elliott.
