The NTT IndyCar Series has rolled into Texas Motor Speedway for this weekend’s doubleheader Genesys 300 and XPEL 375 which take place on Saturday and Sunday.
This weekend marks the end of an extremely busy period for the series following an intense start to the season which by the time the chequered flag falls on Sunday evening the teams will have competed in four races in three weeks in three different states.
The first two races have not only seen two different winners but we have also seen six drivers on the podium. In the season opener at Barber Motorsports Park two weeks ago we had Chip Ganassi Racing’s Alex Palou joined on the podium by Team Penske’s Will Power in the No.12 Verizon 5G Chevrolet while defending series champion and Palou’s teammate, Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda was third.
Last time out at the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg last weekend, Andretti Autosport’s Colton Herta in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda took victory ahead of Team Penske’s Josef Newgarden in the No.2 Hitachi Chevrolet and Simon Pagenaud in the No.22 Australian Gold Chevrolet.
Texas Motor Speedway will host a doubleheader this weekend for the first time since 2011 this weekend with the Genesys 300 and the XPEL 375.
