Team Penske’s Will Power in the No.12 Verizon Chevrolet goes into this weekend’s 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season ending Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg in fourth place in the championship just 13 points behind Andretti Harding Steinbrenner Autosport’s Colton Herta.
Power goes into the final race of the year with plenty of momentum having taken victory in race 2 of the Harvest Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course last time out while also taking victory in race one of the Mid-Ohio double header.
The Australian is mathematically out of the championship race however he goes into St Pete aiming to build on his moment from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway so that he goes into the off season with a platform to build on for the 2021 NTT IndyCar Series season.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend Power said:
We’ve been out of contention for the championship for a few races now, so we are fully focused on just getting more race wins. “St. Pete is such a technical street course, so it can be really fun to race.
Power is joined at Team Penske by Scott McLaughlin who makes his NTT IndyCar Series race debut in the No.3 Shell V-Power Nitro Plus Chevrolet.
