The Tracks of Spec MX-5: Josef Newgarden Reviews Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course

Spec MX-5 Challenge will visit Charlotte Motor Speedway in early June, 2020 for one of its Marquee Events. The Charlotte Marquee weekend will be part of the East Regional Series and also will be one of the 5 Invitational events of the 2020 regular season.

Josef Newgarden, 2019 IndyCar champion, recently visited Charlotte and had some comments after driving his car on the Charlotte roval:

“It’s for sure different than anywhere we go. I wouldn’t say it’s similar to anything. It’s clearly a road course, but its got some street course sections to it, like Turn 1, Turn 2 reminds me of a street course, and then you’ve got the oval which remind me a little bit of the Indy GP that we run and then everything else is kind of something new. So, it really didn’t remind me of anything as a whole, but it had characteristics of some places we’ve been to.”
