NEWTON, Iowa – The Verizon IndyCar Series will review its policy regarding drive-thru penalties, INDYCAR President of Competition Derrick Walker told FOXSports.com Saturday evening, a few hours prior to the start of the Iowa Corn Indy 300 at Iowa Speedway.
Walker, who dictates all competition policy for INDYCAR, believes the drive-thru penalty is often not appropriate for some infractions. That penalty has been called quite often this year with Team Penske driver Will Power getting five drive-thru penalties so far this season including last Sunday’s race at Pocono when he blocked teammate Helio Castroneves.IndyCar, Iowa Speedway, Pocono, Will Power
On Saturday night the 2014 Verizon IndyCar series will appear under the lights for the Iowa Corn Indy 300.
Although the track currently ranks as the shortest on the IndyCar circuit, the drivers are quick to point out that they do not let the small size of the oval deceive them, with Tony Kanaan stating that “as far as the sensation of speed, it’s probably the highest one we go to.”Ed Carpenter, IndyCar, Iowa Speedway, Marco Andretti, Tony Kanaan, Video
MOORESVILLE, North Carolina – On the track, Marco Andretti is driving with fierce desire and determination that has led Andretti Autosport General Manager Kyle Moyer to say it’s the best he’s ever seen Mario Andretti’s grandson race. Unfortunately, mechanical failures, mistakes and plain bad luck has the son of team owner Michael Andretti mired in seventh place in the Verizon IndyCar Series standings.
Perhaps a return to his best racetrack will be enough to save Andretti’s season.Andretti Autosport, IndyCar, Iowa Speedway, Marco Andretti
