Blood, Sweat and Gears: Abel’s ‘500’ Dream Becoming Reality

The garages at Indianapolis Motor Speedway are a flurry of activity as teams from the NTT INDYCAR SERIES are hard at work, pushing their respective machines down Gasoline Alley and onto pit lane for last Saturday’s GMR Grand Prix. “It’s been very interesting running back and forth,” said Brunner, exhaling a cloud of smoke like it’s lifting a temporary weight off his shoulders. “Luckily, the guys on the INDYCAR side that’s here are very experienced, and we’re just really still building. “Chevrolet came Thursday with engineers in the afternoon and actually started the car,” Brunner said. “It’s been a lot of different emotion,” Brunner said. “Fingers crossed that the car just does what it’s supposed to do, and we can get through that (ROP) program,” Brunner said.
