Global Stars Have Adapted to INDYCAR Ovals at Varying Pace

This weekend, Formula One veteran and NTT INDYCAR SERIES rookie Romain Grosjean is doing something he wasn’t sure he ever envisioned, something that prevented him from running the full 2021 season: racing on an oval. Here’s a list of some of those stars and how they fared in their oval debut:. But his oval debut came at Indianapolis in 1963, where he started fifth and finished second, leading 28 laps for Team Lotus. In fact, both of Clark’s INDYCAR SERIES wins came on ovals. In his oval debut at the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Hill won the Indianapolis 500. His oval debut was at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where he started 14th and finished 24th. 1989 INDYCAR SERIES Fittipaldi made his oval racing debut in 1984 at Phoenix Raceway. His second oval race was the next one on the schedule: the Indianapolis 500. His oval debut came in the first race of the season at Phoenix. His oval debut came at Kansas, where he started 11th and finished 24th for KV Racing Technology.
