HINCH AND NEWGARDEN
IOWA SPEEDWAY, IOWA
They’re two of the brightest rising
stars in the IZOD IndyCar Series,
and two of North America’s best
hopes for success in open-wheel
racing over the next decade or so.
Josef Newgarden is the young
American who’s starred in junior
formulas at home and abroad. In
his second year in IndyCar, he’s top
underdog with the one-car Sarah
Fisher Hartman Racing team.
James Hinchcliffe, in his third
season in the series and his second
with Andretti Autosport, has joined
the star-studded list of Canadian
winners in IndyCar racing and is a
true contender for the 2013 title.
Both are bright in the other sense,
too, and eloquently express what
they think of the sport’s demands,
appeal and technical direction.
