So what might Chevy doing that the others aren't doing? According to Spencer Pigot, the track is the same ole track that they've had for the last couple of years, and not much has changed. His guess was that this circuit doesn't use much downforce, and the Chevy cars were better able to trim out down force at the lower levels. However, Pigot — driving a Chevy — will start 16th. His team mate, JR Hildebrand, will start from 21st position. Other Chevys starting towards the back are the two Foyt cars — Conor Daly in 15th and Carlos Munoz in 18th.
So maybe the magic is more with Team Penske?
