Team Penske driver Josef Newgarden heads to Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama this weekend for what is affectively his home race hoping to continue his strong start to the season.
Newgarden, from Nashville, Tennessee has a new primary sponsor for his No.2 Chevrolet with Fitzgerald Glider Kits coming on board this weekend.
Newgarden who scored his first podium for Team Penske last time out at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach where he finished in third place is looking forward to getting on track.
“I’m pumped to head back to Barber. It’s where I got my first win in the Verizon IndyCar Series (in 2015) and I’ve done well there. It’s one of the most beautiful and scenic tracks on the circuit, with a vibe all its own. It’s a wide but tricky track with a fun crowd, always ready for great racing. We’re ready to take the Fitzgerald Glider Kits Chevy there and build on our performance at Long Beach with the goal of another top five in mind. Momentum and consistency is key in this sport and we want to really just follow that with our program.
Practice for the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama gets underway on Friday.
