Two-time NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Josef Newgarden looks forward to heading to Texas Motor Speedway this weekend. The Tennessee-native heads to the Lone Star state aiming to go back to back, having won here last season in a close race with his teammate Scott McLaughlin. Speaking ahead of the race, he commented saying:

“Always excited to get back to Texas. It’s a very demanding, difficult track on the teams and the drivers. I love the challenge of going there. Last year was a fantastic ending for the No. 2 car and was really a great event for Team Penske as a whole. Team Chevy has really done a tremendous job for us both at this event last year, but I think to start the 2023 season. I’m excited to put all of the hard work from the offseason to use at the race this year and can’t wait to see all of the fans back in Texas.”

Scott McLaughlin is looking forward to the race this weekend and speaking ahead of the event he commented saying:

“Looking forward to getting back to Texas for the PPG 375. Obviously, a pretty awesome for our team last year of first, second, and fourth. Unfortunately, I just lost it on the line there against Josef (Newgarden), but if you want to lose to anyone, your teammate is the guy to lose to. Hopefully, we’ll go one better this year. Maybe protect that highline, and if we’ve got the same fast Chevys as we normally have, and the fuel mileage, we’ll be perfect. Really looking forward to seeing what we’ve got.”
