Defending Verizon IndyCar Series champion Josef Newgarden in the No.1 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet says he is hoping to bounce back from a number of difficult races in the 102nd running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil and the Chevrolet Dual in Detroit presented by Lear at this weekend’s DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, the Tennessee native who is currently in fifth in the championship commented by saying:
We’ve had a few weeks that haven’t gone our way but we’re ready to change all that at Texas. The team learned a lot at Indianapolis and have some new things they plan on trying out on the No. 1 Verizon Chevrolet that I’m really excited about. They’ve been working hard in this long stretch, but we’re ready to do whatever we can to get back into victory lane. Texas fans are always really fun and I always really enjoy getting to meet the passionate INDYCAR fans out there.
Will Power in the No.12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet goes into the DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend leafing the championship by five points following his second place finish in race 2 of the Detroit Grand Prix last weekend.
Speaking ahead of the event this weekend, the Australian said:
I’m really looking forward to going back to Texas. The team has really been on a roll with a lot of success in the past month and we are ready to keep doing that. The No. 12 Verizon Chevy team brought home a win last year at Texas and we feel strongly that we have another good shot at it. The fans are always a lot of fun there and really seem to enjoy the type of racing we get to do there. I’m really excited to go back there.
Simon Pagenaud in the No.22 DXC Technology Team Penske Chevrolet is looking forward to the DXC Technology 600 this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway and speaking ahead of the race, the 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series champion commented by saying:
Detroit was a bit of mix for us but we were glad to bring home a decent finish on Sunday. Now, we’re focused on getting the No. 22 DXC Technology Chevrolet back to victory lane in the DXC-sponsored race. Texas is always a challenging racetrack but is always exciting for the fans and one of my favorites. My team has a few things up their sleeve and we’re ready to put on a good show for the fans with one of our few night races.
