Alex Palou’s first oval test at Texas Motor Speedway went successful
Alex Palou’s first oval test at Texas Motor Speedway today was a success with the rookie turning 125 laps. To say he simply enjoyed it would be an understatement.
Alex Palou: “It was a crazy experience and I loved it! It’s awesome to drive on an oval.”
“It was crazier than what I expected, but it was also more fun than what I expected. At first, it was quite eye-opening because of the banking, and the speed, because everything is so quick. ”
“But you have to take it step by step. All you need are small details to make the car better and make your line better. We went from going slowly, building up my confidence to going out on a new tire run. It felt great.”
“I know it’s going to be really different when we come back here in the summer, it will be hot with lots of cars around, but for the first day I think it was perfect.”
“I can’t wait to go oval racing. I was already really excited to go oval racing because I thought I would like it, but I like it even more than what I thought. It’s just awesome to be able race on ovals this year.”
