What Kind Of Racing Will Saturday Night’s DXC Technology 600 (8 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network) Produce

FORT WORTH, TX – The one thing that seems to be known heading into Saturday night’s DXC Technology 600 (8 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network) is that the cars are hard to drive. While there’s a brand new car in the Verizon IndyCar Series for the 2018 season, it’s been a common theme for each race in that the cars are tougher to drive this year than in year’s past.

While I’m sure he’s watched…
