Newly crowned IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden will extend his season a bit Friday when he wheels his No. 2 Shell-Pennzoil Dallara/Chevrolet Indy car in an exhibition run around the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.
Newgarden’s jaunt around the Roval will take place following NASCAR Cup qualifying.
Sunday marked the second time Newgarden has won the IndyCar championship in the last three seasons.
Newgarden grew up in NASCAR country in Hendersonville, Tennessee, north of Nashville. He recently moved back to that area after living in Charlotte the last two years.
