Aerodynamic Changes Will ‘Bring Everybody Closer’ On Ovals

FORT WORTH, Texas — It won’t be a return to pack racing but aerodynamic changes to the Indy cars should create more action in Sunday’s PPG Indy 375 at Texas Motor Speedway. “I think for the drivers you just hope it doesn’t become a pack race. The races at Texas Motor Speedway generally put on a great race, but in recent years the attendance has dropped off dramatically. In 1997, an announced crowd of 129,000 witnessed the first IndyCar race on the track and for the next 15-20 years, it continued to draw very good crowds. Penske Entertainment, race sponsor PPG and Texas Motor Speedway have created some promotional opportunities for this event. The PPG 375 is the only oval race before the 107th Indianapolis 500 on May 29 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Newgarden and the other 27 drivers that will make up the 28-car field for Sunday’s race will experience a thrill show at Texas Motor Speedway.
