Gabby Chaves making first USAC midget start this weekend


Gabby Chaves must be restless.

The Verizon IndyCar Series has the week off following last weekend’s action in Iowa, but the Bryan Herta Autosport rookie is keeping busy.

Chaves will slow things down a bit in his first USAC Midget race in Saturday’s Tony Stewart Classic at the Indianapolis Speedrome.

The TSC is a 100-lap event at the 1/5-mile paved oval..

This isn’t the only branching out Chaves has done. A week ago Chaves was behind the wheel of a BHA Red Bull Global Rally Car.

Usually we have @patriksandell driving that #KobaltTools machine, but not today! @gabbychaves took it out for a spin! #RedBullGRC
