Kimball’s patience pays off with 1st win
A disciplined diet and a monitor he can access while racing allayed those fears. Closing in on the biggest moment of his career on Sunday at the technically demanding 2.258-mile circuit, Kimball dutifully checked his glucose levels every 5-10 laps. The numbers never strayed out of normal range, leaving Kimball free to soak in the moment.
“You can still live your dreams with diabetes,” Kimball said.
One that became a reality for Kimball and tamped down any lingering doubts he had about his ability to compete against IndyCar’s best, including the two guys in the adjoining garages. The victory “quieted a lot of voices” including the one in his head. Now he can focus on the next step in a future getting brighter lap by lap.
“I think builds momentum for not just the rest of the season,” Kimball said, “but the next few years.”
