Eight teams test at Pocono ahead of next event

Iowa pole winner Helio Castroneves was one of six driver to get a ten-place drop for an engine change last weekend. The others were Scott Dixon, Takuma Sato, Josef Newgarden and Ana Beatriz, together with James Jakes after he crashed in the qualifying heat race.

James Davison tests with Dale Coyne

Former Indy Lights racer James Davison has been testing with the Dale Coyne Racing team this week at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.

Davidson - the grandson of legendary Australian racer Lex Davison, son of former racer and long-time Sandown Raceway stalwart Jon Davison and the cousin of current V8 Supercars stars Will and Alex - competed in the Indy Lights series in 2008 and 2009, and previously had an IndyCar test with Andretti Autosport at Palm Beach International Raceway in November 2011.

"I've never given up on my IndyCar dream and fully intend to make the most of this opportunity," said Davison on Monday. "I'm grateful to Dale for this opportunity and have a fantastic teammate in Justin Wilson to work with."

Davison was running the same chassis used by Mike Conway when he won in Detroit earlier this month. The team has been running a rotating line-up of drivers in the #18 car this season with Ana Beatriz the most frequent incumbent and Pippa Mann also getting an outing with the team at Texas.
