The Setup: Texas with Will Anderson

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES is heading to the Lone Star State for the second round of the 2023 season with this weekend’s PPG 375 at Texas Motor Speedway. Will Anderson: Texas, from our side, the team side, is actually pretty hard. So, it’s reminding ourselves what the superspeedway cars want. There’s a lot of little nuances in and of itself with Texas that make it quite difficult, honestly. So, I think the most difficult thing about Texas is normally the entry to mid-corner balance. So, it’s really hard at Texas to give them confidence on the entry without the banking. So, it’s a little bit easier with the more banking and the wider corner radius to be flat in Turns 3-4 versus Turns 1-2. We saw it a little bit at Gateway and at Texas where that does help. And then this year we’re also coming back with more downforce with the new regulations at Texas. So, I think it will change the race complex a little bit.
