I don't think they were there, probably not in the position to run all the tests.

Yeah, the JUST received their new chassis Friday so they're not ready to roll. It appears the previous car was actually owned by RC not the team, and they haven't signed him to run yet. Any chance of them coming to the track for the 500 seems slim if they're just now building up a car

Seems like the open test was a damp squib if you'll pardon the pun. Just the 2 hours of running yesterday.

Unfortunately rain stopped play on Wednesday and Thursday was rained out.

Josef Newgarden topped what there was of the open test, with Kyle Larson an impressive 2nd. Four time winner Hélio Catroneves was 25th.

OUCH, Indy found Penske to be cheating cheating

https://racer.com/2024/04/24/team-pe...rsburg-winner/

Using push to pass before the series unlocks it after restarts. I couldn't tell when they turn it on exactly but they were early on Newgarden and McLaughlin both in race. Power did not use it improperly so sounds like they knew. Cindric blamed it on hybrid testing software


Ah, missed it in the actual race thread

This has shaken up the season standings with Dixon now in the lead followed by Herta, Palou, O'Ward and Power.

If Penske did, then they didn't gain from it. Penske's last win in 2023 was Newgarden's double at Iowa on the July 22 and 23.

Looks like Ilott and Pourchaire may split rounds according to their other commiments in WEC and Super Formula.

However perhaps Callum's deal may not be quite as in depth as Theo's. His Jota drive only came about when an Indycar drive wasn't available..

Feel bad for Malukas. His signing had a real good news vibe about it. Perhaps his wrist injury is more complicated.

Or... perhaps it's something to do with keepimg Chevy on side as GM apparently were not that enamoured with Mclaren signing him. He was not considered an 'A-grade' replacement for Palou, which led to a reduction in their engine payments..

Allegedly....

That seems WAY over the top for GM to change anything cause they signed Malukas, possibly loss of an ad campaign using Palou with GM in a McLaren. But I watch a lot of car stuff and don't see GM ads for Indy, Honda yes but not GM. Plus they don't pay McLaren to run them, McLaren pays a lease fee to them.

Actually now that you bring that up, I don't recall a Chevy or GM ad promoting Indycar on TV, but yes Honda. In that same vein, my local Firestone shop has no Indy references and it drives me bonkers!

Abel ain't gonna make the 500, their new car isn't any where near ready it sounds like and RC owns the car assembled in the shop and he didn't find the money
