Indiana drivers will soon be required to move over to allow faster vehicles to pass or they will risk a $500 fine. The new law, signed by Governor Mike Pence, is set to take effect on July 1, 2015 and it gives speeders the right of way in so-called highway fast lanes.

Beginning the race was Michael Krumm. Buncombe drove next, followed by Ordonez and then Hoshino san, with all drivers single-stinting to start with.
“We had a very straightforward race,” said Team boss, Bob Neville. “After the initial single stints the drivers all did doubles and didn’t put a foot wrong. We were pretty cautious during the night when it was raining and this worked out well for us. The car ran like clockwork and it is always good
