Other factors serve as motivation in all-star races, as Rick Mears can attest. Mears was poised to win the 10-driver, 100-mile trophy dash, held that year at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. “It just stumbled with a little air pocket,” Mears said last week of his car’s engine. “My plan the whole lap was just to keep the hammer down, and (I did) up and over the Corkscrew,” Mears said. That wasn’t a place where a pass was expected to happen, but Mears pulled it off and went on to his only win in the event. The $1 Million Challenge includes an NTT INDYCAR SERIES Open Test from The Thermal Club on Friday, with Peacock providing coverage from noon-2 p.m.
