The Verizon IndyCar Series is in Mid-Ohio for the Honda Indy 200 this weekend and the opening day of on track action ended with Team Penske’s Will Power in the No.12 Verizon Chevrolet ending up first with a fastest time of 01:04.1962s.
Speaking following the day of action Power commented by saying:
Obviously the cars are just getting faster and faster, It’s not like the track is getting faster. It’s just amazing how much speed we have in like Turn 11 and Turn 1 now. It’s definitely going to be a lap record broken. … Yeah, that’ll be broken for sure if it’s dry. “It’s very obvious to us what we have to do, and that’s finish ahead of Pagenaud in particular because he’s got such a chunk of points ahead of us,” It’s a no-brainer for us. … Not that you take any stupid risks, but we understand that week in, week out, you’ve got your aim, you’ve got your goal.
