IndyCar: Scott Dixon fastest at Texas tire test

By ,

Ganassi Racing’s Scott Dixon ended-up the fastest driver in what was a windy IndyCar Firestone tire test at Texas Motor Speedway.

Eighteen cars took part in the test and teams took the opportunity to evaluate aero configurations ahead of the race at the venue in June. However, race engineers stressed that gaining meaningful comparisons was difficult due to the conditions.

Also among those present was Juan Pablo Montoya, who said that his recent experience at the track in NASCAR actually made it more difficult to settle in with a Dallara DW-12.

Meanwhile, KV/AFS Racing driver Sebastian Saavedra has been fined and placed on probation for a full-course yellow infraction at last weekend's IndyCar race at Long Beach.
