Newgarden Takes 11th at Texas Motor Speedway

Posted: Updated:
 Josef Newgarden's Strike/Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing Dallara/Honda/Firestone car looked "striking" under the lights at Texas Motor Speedway, but he struggled to stay up front after starting second and finished 11th in the Firestone 600 on Saturday night.

"It was a tough race for us," Newgarden said. "There were a lot of green flag laps in a row, which is typical with IndyCar right now because there's not a lot of mistakes out there. But that makes it difficult when you're trying to sort out the car because you don't have a lot of yellows to work with.

"We weren't quite as strong with the rear of the car as we thought we were, and that was the obstacle we were chasing all night."
