Honda Dominates Chevrolet in Their Own Backyard for 1st Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix

Belle Isle, MI – Forgive those who thought Team Penske would dominate this weekend on the streets of Belle Isle. Heck, I was one of those people too.

Will Chevy Have Resurgence at Phoenix This Weekend?

INDIANAPOLIS – Honda has already shown a great deal of improvement this year compared to last season. Through three races of the Verizon IndyCar Series season in 2017, Honda drivers have won two of the three races and have led 67-percent (191) of the 285 laps this year. What makes that so big is, Honda drivers only led 110 laps on road/street courses combined with short ovals in 2016.
