Welcome to Carb Day; Frye Announces Red Bull Partnership

Jay Frye just announced some exciting news for the NTT Indycar Series. Red Bull Advanced Technologies will partner with Indycar in developing  a windscreen which should be on all cars in 2020.  Teams should have the new part by November.  The piece is similar to the windscreen previously tested. There is a rigid strip in the middle of the screen. More on this story later.

It’s the final test for the 33 starters in the 103rd Running of the Indianapolis 500. Todays conditions are closer to what is expected Sunday. The extended session should help drivers and teams get a better idea of how their cars will perform on Race Day.

The track is drying from the morning rain.  No announcement on the start time for practice, but I think the delay will be minimal.

Here is the release from Indycar:
