IndyCar: Chaves, Gonzalez to test for Schmidt Peterson


The Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires champion, Gabby Chaves, will have his first Verizon IndyCar Series test today.

Chaves returns to Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, with whom he raced in his first season of Indy Lights in 2013. Both he and Rodolfo Gonzalez will test for SPM at the Homestead-Miami Speedway, on the track’s infield road course.

Chaves is expected to race at least the Indianapolis 500 and potentially several other events, depending on the type of budget he can put together for 2015.

Meanwhile Gonzalez is already set for his second IndyCar test, having tested with Dale Coyne Racing at Barber last week.

Rocky Moran Jr. is expected to take over one of the SPM cars on Tuesday for his first IndyCar test.
