Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden in the No.2 XPEL Chevrolet who claimed his third pole position in a row for Sunday’s Honda Iny 200 presented by HPD Ridgeline at the Mid-Ohio Sportscar Course says that the strategy for the race should be pretty straightforward if the 80 lap race goes green all the way.
Speaking to The Paddock Eye following the action, the Tennessee native who is seeking his first win of the year commented saying:
Depends on the yellows. Outside of yellows, if it’s a green race it looks pretty straightforward.
Newgarden who set a fastest time of 01:06.6739s went on to say:
That’s a little tighter than I wanted it to be. “That’s INDYCAR. It’s Mid-Ohio. Always tight here. So difficult.
“I think I’ve qualified second like three times, something like that,” he said. “It always comes down to being super tight at the end.
