Preview of the Detroit Gran Prix…


 
DOUBLE-TIME. THE CIRCUIT. 
From double points to double-header, the Detroit Grand Prix is one of the most important events on the schedule when the championship is being chased. Although each race is only worth single points in the Verizon IndyCar Series championship, twice as many points are on the line for the weekend.

Qualifying is a bit different at the Detroit Grand Prix than on the average street or road course weekend. There is no fast six. In fact there is only one round of qualifying to place the racing machine at the front of the grid. The field of 23 will be split into two groups and each group will have 12 minutes to set their fast time. The driver with the fastest time will earn the pole position and the remaining drivers in that group will fill in the starting grid’s odd number positions based on fastest times. The opposite group will fill in the even number scores based on their quickest times.

 
IN HIS WORDS.
No. 98 AutoNation / Curb Honda

“Now that Indy is over, it’s time to switch our focus and get the race win we know we have in the No. 98 machine and we have two good chances to put the AutoNation car up front in Detroit. It will be a physical race after the IMS oval, but we are prepared in every way possible. I love driving the Belle Isle circuit.”
