Canapino Coming to Grips with New Sensations on Texas Oval

Agustin Canapino finished last week’s rookie test at Texas Motor Speedway with thoughts shared by so many NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers over the years after experiencing the high-banked oval for the first time. “This (type of racing) is really crazy, and I think these INDYCAR guys are really crazy,” Canapino said, laughing for several seconds. “The G-forces at those speeds are a very strong feeling, honestly, and nothing is similar to that,” Canapino said. Canapino said he also was fortunate to have time to run laps behind Robb (SEE: Video) to give him a brief feel of the turbulence that will come during the race weekend. The fastest lap in last year’s Texas race was 220.661 mph. “I’m focused on the next test, the next race, the next situation, and the next situation is an oval. For me, the race will be a test race, the same situation as (all races) this year.
