Legge Takes Vital Steps Back to Indy with Texas Test

Those were the words Katherine Legge heard from Kevin “Rocket” Blanch, INDYCAR’s technical director, as the sun set after a hot and windy Monday at Texas Motor Speedway. While a lot was different for Legge compared to her last time behind an INDYCAR SERIES car, she adapted quickly, according to her race engineer, Mike Armbrester, who was the performance engineer for Takuma Sato’s win at the “500” in 2020. It’s been 10 years since she drove a Honda (INDYCAR SERIES) car, so some of the Honda engine controls and stuff are different. “It was very critical, and we appreciate INDYCAR’s help with that,” Armbrester said. But just to get a taste of what it’s like behind one car so she has some idea what’s going to be coming at her when we go to Indy in a couple weeks and she’s in a pack is very, very helpful.”.
