The NTT IndyCar Series returns to on track racing action as the run in to the conclusion of the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season continues this weekend iwith the Music City Grand Prix.
Fresh from taking a podium at the Gallagher Grand Prix of Indianaplis on the IMS road course last Saturday, Team Penske’s Will Power retook the lead of the championship by nine points from Marcus Ericsson who won here last year.
Looking ahead to this weekend’s race on the streets of Nashville, Managing Director of Chevrolet’s IndyCar Programme, Rob Buckner said:
It’s good to go back to Nashville. “I think everyone was stunned and really happy with the crowds and the excitement around town for last year’s event. Based on what we’re hearing it will be more of the same for this year’s race, which is great for everyone involved in INDYCAR.
“From a competition perspective, calling Nashville a unique circuit is a huge understatement!” “The tight and twisty sections on either side of the river plus the long runs over the bridge can present a lot of different options on the amount of downforce you can run. There have been lots of time spent looking at last year’s data to see where we can improve. Our street course record this year has been excellent and it would be great to close out the year’s final street circuit with another win.”
With four races remaining this season, Chevrolet lead the manufacturers standings by 130 points over Honda having taken 9 victories so far in 2022 compared to four for Honda Performance Development.
