The NTT IndyCar Series has updated the festivities for this weekend’s XPEL 375 at Texas Motor Speedway.
Changes are added ahead of Saturday’s final practice to help work in the grip level for the stained PJ1 area impacted by previous NASCAR events. Per IndyCar, a 30-minute “special session to work in another lane” will take place at 4 p.m. CT. The drivers participating are Ed Carpenter, Helio Castroneves, Pato O’Ward, Will Power, Graham Rahal, Felix Rosenqvist and Takuma Sato. They will use a combined total of 10 sets of Firestone tires from last year’s race, with each driver having one set available to use with the exception of Power and Rahal, who will both have two.
Final practice will run at 4:45 p.m. until 5:45 p.m. CT.
Coverage of the Sunday’s XPEL 375 is set for 11:30 a.m. CT on NBC.
