Texas 101: Rookie Robb Getting Schooled on Speed Quickly

Sting Ray Robb is one of three NTT INDYCAR SERIES drivers who will experience racing at Texas Motor Speedway for the first time next weekend. Robb said it took him a half-dozen laps to get the nerve to test the limits of the car. Robb said the lateral push on his body in the corners, which reached 4 Gs, was more sustained than he expected. Robb said his point of emphasis was hitting the turn-in location in Turn 1. “Setting your eyesight up the road is a big focus (at Texas) because the (increased) speed is something you have to get used to,” he said. “I think that’s a trick question because I don’t think any (rookie) is ever ready to race there,” he said.
