Armstrong, Blomqvist, Lundqvist Finish Indy 500 Rookie Test

Seven hundred and ninety-five drivers have made at least one Indianapolis 500 start over 107 editions of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing.”. “With the speeds that you’re going, it feels so fast. Blomqvist ended up fastest overall at 220.176 mph, followed by Lundqvist at 219.504 and Armstrong at 219.252. It should come as little surprise that Armstrong, Blomqvist and Lundqvist completed the rookie test with speedy aplomb due to their familiarity with the cars. All three drivers also have participated in NTT INDYCAR SERIES oval testing earlier this year at Texas Motor Speedway. The NTT INDYCAR SERIES also will test the 2.2-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 engine with hybrid technology Thursday at IMS. The hybrid power unit will make its NTT INDYCAR SERIES race debut in 2024.
