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. To have led so many laps already this year on road/street courses, bodes well for the rest of the 2017 campaign. But, with…

Honda’s Strong Out of the Gates, Lead All 85 Laps at Long Beach

St. Petersburg, Fla – Last year, Chevrolet drivers dominated the entire 2016 Verizon IndyCar Series season.

St. Petersburg, Fla – Last year, Chevrolet dominated the Verizon IndyCar Series season putting eight drivers in the top nine of the final points standings, winning 14 of the 16 races and 13 of the 16 poles.
