9.4.2012 (Via LehighValleyLive.com) - Race car driver Sage Karam of Bushkill Township proved to be a hard guy to keep down during the Grand Prix of Baltimore this weekend.
During the Star Mazda Series race on Saturday, on a course at Baltimore's Inner Harbor, the Nazareth Area High School student crashed hard late in the race.
Undaunted, Karam, a son of Jody and Karen Karam, rallied to score his third series win of 2012 today in Round 2.
The win moved Karam into second place in series points behind England's Jack Hawksworth, who scored his seventh win of the season on Saturday.
Karam credited midnight oil and hard work by his team for getting him to the starting line today.
"We really had an awesome race car, and the team did an awesome job putting it back together after the crash," Karam said. "Hats off to them."
Karam drives for his former neighbor Michael Andretti's Andretti Autosport team, which also fielded the winning car driven by Ryan Hunter-Reay today in the Grand Prix's featured Indy car race.
Even though he trails Hawksworth by 61 points with the season winding down, Karam said he drove to win and particularly with an eye on Hawksworth.
"The Comfort Revolution car was just perfect," Karam said. "We didn't put a wheel wrong today, and I did my best to keep Hawksworth behind me."
