Push-to-Pass Test at IMS Oval Delivers Promising Results, Feedback

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES continued its preparation for an engine configuration change in 2023, which includes hybrid technology, by testing a Push-to-Pass system Friday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. INDYCAR President Jay Frye reiterated this was one of many tests to be held before the engine configuration is used in competition. Dixon, Rossi, Newgarden and O’Ward and their teams participated in an aerodynamic test at IMS in November, and those adjustments made then were validated in this session, Frye said. “We tried to simulate how it could work,” Frye said, adding that testing on the new engines is expected in early 2022. Newgarden said this is one of the many options INDYCAR has for the future.
