Chevrolet IndyCar Programme Manager Rob Buckner says the Detroit-based manufacturer worked extremely hard with Texas Motor Speedway, their partner teams, and Firestone to come up with a plan during their test here earlier this month and is hopeful that they can bring home two wins this weekend.

Speaking ahead of the races this weekend, Buckner said:

“There are many variables to consider with the racetrack configuration, wind, heat, grip level and the short time window to dial in the cars for the first race. “Chevrolet trackside engineers worked with teams during a March 31 test at the track and we’ll be ready for more exciting racing at Texas Motor Speedway and hopefully bring home two victories.”
Josef Newgarden in the No.2 XPEL Chevrolet has one victory here which came in 2019 while he also has two pole awards coming in 2018 and 2020. Speaking ahead of this weekend’s doubleheader, the Tennessee native commented saying:
“One race around this place can smoke you pretty good. “So, adding two … it will be a challenge, especially if it’s hot. It’s a daring track. You have to have commitment when you come here. You’ve got to feel very confident in yourself and in your car. I like that about this track.”
