Ahead of the Verizon IndyCar Series’ triumphant return to Watkins Glen after a six-year absence on September 4, a number of drivers and teams have been putting in the laps during the latest collective test on Thursday.
The test saw a number of current drivers take to the track as well as a handful of those hoping to make the step up to IndyCar in the future.
Indy Lights drivers Ed Jones (Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing), Dean Stoneman, Shelby Blackstock and and Dalton Kellett (all Andretti Autosport) enjoyed track time alongside the majority of the IndyCar grid. Eight teams were present in total.
Running was cut short late in the day due to rain, although some did brave a few laps through the tricky conditions.
Here’s a round-up of the social media posts from Watkins Glen on Thursday.
The teams also ran with decals paying tribute to Bryan Clauson on their cars following the three-time Indy 500 starter’s death last Sunday.
