Construction of Texas Motor Speedway began in 1995. This 1.5-mile racetrack has 24 degrees of banking in all four turns and 5 degrees of banking on both the front and back straightaways. The length of the front straight is 2,250 feet, and the back straight measures 1,330 feet.
Since 1997, there have been 25 IndyCar races held at Texas. The series competed twice there each season from 1998-2004. In 2011, the event at Texas was split into two races (each one was 114 laps/171 miles in length).
Helio Castroneves holds the record for most IndyCar wins at Texas with four (October 2004, June 2006, June 2009 and June 2013).
Tomas Scheckter holds the record for most poles at Texas with three.
Team Penske has the most team victories at Texas with eight.
The October 2001 race featured a track record for most lead changes with 32. Sam Hornish Jr. was the winner of that event.
The furthest back a driver has started and won an IndyCar race at Texas is 17th, accomplished by Justin Wilson in June 2012.
Hornish holds the record for most laps led by an IndyCar race winner at Texas. He won at this track in June 2007 after leading a total of 159 laps.
The closest margin of victory in an IndyCar race at Texas came on Sept. 15, 2002 when Hornish beat Castroneves to the finish line by only 0.0096 seconds.
The next IndyCar events are the Shell and Pennzoil Grand Prix of Houston. It's the second weekend doubleheader of the season. Race 1 at Houston's Reliant Park is scheduled for June 28, and race 2 is slated for June 29. Scott Dixon (race 1) and Will Power (race 2) won there last year.
