Fifth Gear: Five Takeaways from Indy Road Race

The Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix, the second NTT INDYCAR SERIES race of the season on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, did not disappoint. NTT INDYCAR SERIES rookie Romain Grosjean had a career day on the IMS road course. In three oval races this season, the organization’s best finish is fifth by Herta in the second race at Texas Motor Speedway. It was also a career-best day for NTT INDYCAR SERIES rookie Jimmie Johnson. Race car drivers are never happy with a 19th-place finish, but it came in Johnson’s ninth NTT INDYCAR SERIES start. The IMS road course is the track that Johnson has driven at the most during his INDYCAR SERIES career. “It was a great day at the racetrack,” Johnson said. Six-time and defending NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Scott Dixon had a weekend to forget on the IMS road course.
