The record is like 236 or something and they are doing 235 right out of the box. With another 50hp and two days to dial the car in, that might fall.Penske has brought it this year… each of their guys showed in top 7 in “no tow” speeds. I like to look for that early when they show up here
And yeah, Dixon is just making speed look easy when he gets out there each year lol
Those are trap speeds, it looks like they have a tailwind into turn 1? 237.2 is definitely high for no added boost. I can’t watch right now but following along a bit on social. Dixon’s top lap speed was a tow lap.Ericsson in stealth mode, but still really quick.
Right now the top 18 are at 230. When did they find all this speed? Dixon is running as fast than last year's pole speed and that's without the extra boost. We might be talking about new record this weekend if they can keep this up and have good conditions.
I guess I read it wrong. Time to dig out the reading glasses!
Santino always runs well at Indy. He's just got to get in a good position and save the car for the final stint.Foyt might have sucked everywhere thus far but Indy is Indy and Ferrucci is fast. No one has to love him, but I respect him. He's out here with the big boys running fast laps.
