The Brit tested there for the first time last year with Panther Racing. His second run at the 2.303 mile road course proved to be an impressive one for Conway as he recorded the fastest time on both days. He led the field on Wednesday and again on Thursday. Three cars participated on the first day and on the second day 13 IndyCar Series drivers completed a full day of testing at Infineon Raceway. Conway topped the charts with a time of 1:19.25 seconds on the first day and on the second day he clocked a time of 1:17.48 seconds.

What they have to say…
Milka Duno, No. 23 CITGO: “It was really good that we were able to test last week. I learned a lot about the circuit. I raced here a couple of years ago in a prototype and it was totally different for me being in this car. I think we had a good test, but we still have some improvements to make for this weekend and that will be our goal and we will have a good weekend.”
