Pagenaud Paces Fast First Practice at Texas

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES track record at Texas Motor Speedway could be in jeopardy during NTT P1 Award qualifying Saturday afternoon if speeds from XPEL 375 practice this morning are any indication. Simon Pagenaud led a one-hour session this morning on the 1.5-mile oval, turning a top lap of 223.087 mph in the No. The 248-lap race starts at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, live on NBC on the INDYCAR Radio Network. Rookie Callum Ilott, competing in the first oval race of his career, opened many eyes with his top lap of 222.257 in the No. Seven-time NASCAR Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson was the busiest driver during practice as he prepares for his first NTT INDYCAR SERIES oval race.
