Grosjean Ready for Eye-Opening Oval Debut Saturday at WWTR

After 10 seasons in Formula One, Romain Grosjean has not thought of himself as a rookie in his first NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. Grosjean’s only experience charging around a track with no right-direction corners is a July 27 test at this 1.25-mile track in Madison, Illinois. Grosjean’s first oval race should be fascinating to watch, similar to Scott McLaughlin’s first race at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year with Team Penske. “I’m excited, and also I think you need to respect ovals like street courses,” Grosjean said. McLaughlin has performed well on the ovals despite having no previous experience with them. McLaughlin finished 20th in the “500,” but he stayed on the lead lap and has completed all 660 oval-track laps this season. The 84 points he has scored on ovals is why he leads Grosjean with four races to go.
