Chevrolet head into this weekend’s Sonsio Grand Prix of Road America off the back of a historic event last time out at their home event in Detroit, Michigan where they scored their 100th NTT IndyCar Series victory since their return to the series in 2012.

The Bowtie has won five of the opening seven races during the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season with Team Penske’s Will Power in the No.12 Verizon 5G Chevrolet the most recent race winner in Detroit.

Team Penske has four wins so far this season with Scott McLaughlin winning the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg while Josef Newgarden scored back-to-back victories in Texas at the XPEL 375 while also taking victory at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Arrow McLaren SP’s Pato O’Ward took victory in the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.

Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race in Road America, Chevrolet NTT IndyCar Series Program Manager Rob Buckner said:

Everyone on our program and all of our teams have worked extremely hard during this run of events at Indianapolis, plus Detroit and now Road America. “We’re grateful to reach the 100-victory mark with our 2.2-liter V6 engine, and there’s no place better than to start the drive to 200 than at a circuit like Road America.

“It’s a circuit that presents a variety of engineering tests,” he added. “Obviously the track is very fast with long, wide-open straights but at end of these are hard braking zones for a number of 90-degree corners. Throw in high-speed corners like the Carousel and the Kink, plus a race surface that brings high tire degradation, and this will be one of the most challenging races of the season.
