Honda’s Showing They Have Something For Chevrolet This Weekend In Pocono

LONG POND, PA – Heading into this weekend’s Verizon IndyCar Series race at the Pocono Raceway, Chevrolet appeared to be the manufacturer to beat for Sunday’s ABC Supply 500 (1:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network). With this just being the third race that this universal aerokit has raced on in terms of superspeedway action, if we base everything off of how Indy and Texas went, Chevrolet would be the top dog right? See, Chevy drivers dominated at Indy. They had the top two finishers and three of the top six. Overall, Chevy…

Chevy Has Qualifying Pace, Honda’s Though Better Elsewhere

ELKHART LAKE, Wis – Where Chevrolet is quick in determining the starting lineup for Sunday’s Kohler Grand Prix (12:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network) most would put all three Team Penske drivers and Chevy as the favorites to win this weekend’s race in Road America. In qualifying, Chevy locked out the front row with Josef Newgarden and Will Power. That’s not too surprising as Chevy had all three Penske cars in the top five of the second practice session on Friday afternoon. See, that session you could use the Firestone Alternate tires…

Penske Strong, Battle Amongst Honda’s Behind Going To Be Fun Battle To Watch

ELKHART LAKE, Wis – Friday showed that Team Penske will certainly be the ones to beat for Sunday’s Kohler Grand Prix (12:30 p.m. ET/NBCSN/INDYCAR Radio Network). They should have been last year too but Scott Dixon had a better pit sequence and found the lead and clean air. This year, Dixon enters as the hottest driver in the field and a sexy pick to win the 55 Lap race this weekend. But, the Chip Ganassi Racing driver was only ninth and seventh fastest in the two Verizon IndyCar Series practice sessions…

Honda’s Have Better Fuel Mileage, Better Tire Wear In Dominating Chevy In Texas

FORT WORTH, TX – This weekend’s Verizon IndyCar Series race at the Texas Motor Speedway was supposed to be about Chevrolet. 13 days ago, they led 150 of 200 laps for the Indianapolis 500 and finished 1-2. They also had nine of the top 11 starters that day as it was apparent that they had the superior package on superspeedways.

Honda’s Showing Strength In INDYCAR Action In Belle Isle But That Shouldn’t Be A Surprise, Why Andretti, Coyne And RLL Are Now Favorites

BELLE ISLE, MI – After Chevrolet’s domination in last weekend’s Indianapolis 500, I think most people forgot about how strong the Honda teams were throughout the first four races of the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season. Chevy drivers combined to lead 150 out of the 200 laps last Sunday and took the top two finishing positions in the race. Furthermore, they had nine of the top 11 qualifiers. But, in Friday’s two INDYCAR practice sessions on the 2.35-mile Belle Isle street circuit, Honda flipped the script. In the first practice, they…

Chevrolet Appears To Be Favorites For Indianapolis 500 Pole This Weekend

INDIANAPOLIS – The overall speed charts may tell one story, but the no tow charts tell a completely different one this week. Four of the top six drivers on the Fast Friday speed chart belonged to Honda drivers. That’s all good and well for the Japanese manufacturer, but this weekend is about single lap speed without a tow, not with it. The Honda laps were turned with a tow involved, as just three Honda drivers were found in the top 10 of the no tow list in Friday’s seven hour practice…

Honda Teams Quick Out Of The Gates This Weekend in St. Pete, Penske’s Pole Streak Will Be Threatened

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla – Team Penske and Chevrolet have been the ones to beat recently on the streets of St. Pete.
