Renault took advantage of “promotional event” running by Lotus in Jerez to put some miles on the latest updates introduced since it had problems in the group test at the same venue.

The month of May is shaping up to be one of the biggest in recent memory for Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and Monday morning the track announced another exciting event would be added to the growing schedule.

Country music superstar Jason Aldean will perform in concert during Legends Day on Saturday, May 24.

“Over the last several years we have continued to add reasons for our fans to visit the Indianapolis Motor Speedway the day before the Indianapolis 500 to celebrate our current drivers and the legends of the race as part of Legends Day,” said J. Douglas Boles, IMS president.

“Adding a concert featuring an outstanding entertainer like Jason Aldean is a fantastic way for fans to cap off a day of honoring our current and past drivers and get geared up for ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing’ that will take place the next day.”
