Loudon, NH — New Hampshire Motor Speedway experienced its fastest laps of 2011 today, when Firestone Indy Lights Team Moore Racing tested for the upcoming race on Aug. 14.
Victor Garcia and Gustavo Yacaman zipped around “The Magic Mile” at speeds for the first time in their racing careers at speeds of up to 170 mph and liked what they saw.
Yacaman, a native of Colombia pilots the No. 2 Team Moore TMR XTREME Coil Drilling car, who boasts seven top-fives and 15 top-10 finishes in his Firestone Indy Lights career, shared his thoughts on NHMS.
“It’s a different track than the tracks we have been to. The good thing is that it is really warm today so it’s similar to what we will face in August. I am really happy about the day so far and I think we’re getting close to top-speed,” he said.
