Chevrolet say the are aiming for a successful doubleheader race weekend as the NTT IndyCar Series heads to Wisconsin for the REV Group Grand Prix of Road America race one on Saturday and race two on Sunday.
The Chevrolet powered teams, Penske, Ed Carpenter Racing, AJ Foyt Racing and Arrow McLaren SP head into the weekend aiming for a strong weekend.
For the first time this season, fans will be in attendance at the races this weekend.
Speaking ahead of the races, Rob Buckner, Chevrolet Racing Engineering Programme Manager for the NTT IndyCar Series commented saying:
“While the Chevy powered INDYCAR teams and drivers are accustomed to running at least one doubleheader weekend during the NTT INDYCAR Series season, this weekend will be the first for Road America. In previous seasons, the doubleheaders have been on a street circuit with the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix on Belle Isle the annual stop every year since 2013. This weekend our teams will be tested on the longest circuit on the schedule at the 4.04-miles, 14-turn natural road course. The Chevrolet Racing engineers, technical partners and team engineers have been working diligently to ensure the Chevy drivers have the durability, power and fuel efficiency needed to get to Victory Lane on both Saturday and Sunday. Reliability is the key to success and we have put in the work to give the Chevy drivers the necessary tools. This will mark the first time the fans will be at-track and that is the equivalent of the 12th man on the field. Our teams and drivers feed off of that excitement and enthusiasm so we are looking forward to a very successful weekend in Wisconsin.
