Newgarden Fastest Ahead Of Second Iowa Race

NEWTON, Iowa – Two of the Team Penske trio of NTT IndyCar Series drivers were the fastest in Saturday afternoon’s practice for Saturday night’s second race of the Iowa IndyCar 250s at Iowa Speedway. Josef Newgarden, who will start on the pole after having fastest second lap during qualifying Friday, was the fastest at 170.199 mph in the No. That was nearly two mph faster than Friday night’s race winner Simon Pagenaud’s 168.515 mph in the No. Rinus VeeKay is using a backup car after a crash in Friday’s race damaged the aeroscreen. Pagenaud won Friday’s race race after starting last in the 23-car field when his engine had a fuel-pressure issue during qualifying on Friday, preventing him from turning a lap. Newgarden has a head-start on Saturday’s race by starting on the pole and having the fastest speed in Saturday’s practice.
