Push-to-pass available to test in practice

INDYCAR will set the engine control unit to allow one push-to-pass activation per run (service stop) in practice July 6 for the Honda Indy Toronto. The overtake assist feature, introduced to the series in 2009, allows a driver to add turbocharger boost and additional RPMs with the press of a button on the steering wheel to complete a pass. It is being re-instated for the final five street/road course races of the season.

Push-to-pass will be disabled for practice and the three rounds of qualifications July 5, but will be re-enabled for the warm-up session July 8 and race.
