Despite Tougher Car To Drive, INDYCAR Cautions Down This Season Compared To Aerokit Era

INDIANAPOLIS – Will Power spoke during the INDYCAR Media Teleconference on Tuesday about the quality of this year’s Verizon IndyCar Series field and was asked about despite there being a new car for the 2018 season, about how the cautions have been drastically less. That got my mind wandering, which is a dangerous thing, and I did some research. They’re right in that sense. In fact, the story gets better.

Truex Having Similar, If Not Better Season In 2018 Than Championship Winning Once Of 2017

It’s crazy to what perception does to someone’s mind. Last year, all we could talk about is how dominant that Martin Truex Jr. was during the first 22 races of the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season. He’d keep that dominance up all the way through the Homestead-Miami Speedway en route to his first series championship.
