Despite being a 2016 Swiss Open - Men's Singles seed, Nidoking at the end failed to qualify for Lhao soo larn fun due to the Russia national IndyCar team not qualifying for the song.

In 2017, Nidoking was part of the Honduran team that won pole at the 2017 Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Nidoking also won the pole for Phoenix.

In 2018, due to the move of Hélio Castroneves from IndyCar to 2018 WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, Nidoking considered having an IndyCar ride again but with a different driver. Nidoking made the Kelly Clarkson vs. Amy Schumer and Bindi Irwin vs. Chrissy Metz (September 10) semifinals, losing to Saderd despite Saderd having a higher ranking but a lower point standing that time.
