2014 Texas: IndyCar Starting Line-Up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

Round eight of the 2014 Verizon Indycar season is the annual visit to the Texas super-collider known as the Texas Motor Speedway.

Texas is a 1.5-mile quad-oval that was completed in 1996. The banking in the turns is 24 degrees with a 2,250 foot frontstretch and a much shorter backstretch that is 1,330 feet. The amazing facility has hosted the IndyCar series since 1997 with seating for up to 159,585. The debut winner was Arie Luyendyk.

During qualifying, Penske IndyCar driver Will Power took his second Pole the 2014 season with a lap of 218.896 mph. Power is looking for his third win of the season. Power has been a championship contender for each of the last five seasons and leads the IndyCar points standings by 19 over Helio Castroneves.

The Pole sitter at Texas has this event six times out of 25 races held at the track.

Lining up on the front row along side of Power will be Josef Newgarden. Andretti has raced at Texas twice, but has never won here. In two starts, he has finished 8th or worse each time.

Row two will host Tony Kanaan and Juan Pablo Montoya. Kanaan has won once at Texas in 14 starts. Montoya has never raced here.

Overall, Texas has had five different winners over the last five events. So, if you are looking to bet the house, this isn't the event to do so.

Our pick for the win is.... Helio Castroneves. Although they have been spread out, the Brazilian has four wins at Texas despite having just one pole. Plus, he's hot having just won at Detroit.

Should Castroneves fail, keep an eye on Tony Kanaan who also is always good on ovals and needs a win.

Enjoy the race tonight!
