As predicted, IndyCar broke its track record around Watkins Glen yet again today, with Scott Dixon’s pole-sitting time of 1:22.5259 taking the new record. Dixon’s lap was good for a blistering 147.008 average speed around the best little road course in New York. Holy crap, that’s nuts.
Holy crap, this weekend’s IndyCar race is going to be fast. IndyCar is back at a track they never should have left in the first place—Watkins Glen—and that track has a nice, fresh repave that’s apparently good for multiple seconds under IndyCar’s previous track record there from 2009.
