Quaker Chemical and Newgarden Look To Finish Strong In Fontana

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing (SFHR) with driver Josef Newgarden has been on a bit of a tear in the Verizon IndyCar Series as of late. After having a sure victory taken away with a troubled pit stop at the Mid-Ohio round, Newgarden has gone on to score finishes of fifth in Milwaukee and sixth last weekend in Sonoma, after having qualified second at the legendary Napa Valley circuit.

The scene now moves south to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California for the MAVTV 500 IndyCar World Championships; the final race of the 2014 Verizon IndyCar World Series. Auto Club Speedway has not been kind to SFHR and Newgarden in their last two visits there, 20th in 2012 and 16th last year, but Newgarden fully expects a great result to finish the season.

Quaker Chemical Corporation, an official sponsor and technical partner of Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing, will again have its logos adorn Newgarden's IndyCar in Fontana as well as its lubricants inside the No. 67 SFHR Dallara/Honda.

"We are looking forward to another great finish from SFHR to close out the IndyCar season," Joe Berquist, Quaker VP and Managing Director North America, said. "And are excited to see how our custom engineered greases can give SFHR an advantage over 500 miles on the fast and bumpy Auto Club Speedway Track."

Auto Club Speedway could not differ more from the last stop on the IndyCar schedule, the natural terrain road course in Sonoma. The 2-mile, high-speed, D-shaped Fontana oval presents some unique challenges that Newgarden and SFHR need to prepare for.

"I think we've been a top-10 runner this year. Points wise we're not in that but if you look at our performance for the year that's where we should be," Newgarden said. "You can go through the whole year, list everything and what happened where or what could have been different, but for us the points game is over now, it doesn't really matter what happens. So for us we are just looking to have a successful race. And by that you either win or try and score a podium. We are definitely looking for a big result this weekend."

The SFHR team has been in the spotlight over the last two weeks with two major announcements. The first was confirmation of a merger with Ed Carpenter Racing beginning in 2015 to form a two-car IndyCar team that will be known as CFH (Carpenter Fisher Hartman) Racing. Next was the announcement that that the team had signed Newgarden to drive for the CFH Racing outfit for the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series. Both developments bode very well for the future of the CFH Racing program.

"Fontana is a very dusty racetrack. It's demanding from a couple of different aspects," Newgarden said. "The surface is difficult here not only from all of the sand and debris that swirls around at this place. There are a lot of lanes and trying to cross over the lanes with the seams the way they are here makes it really difficult."

The MAVTV 500 INDYCAR World Championships will air live on NBC Sports Network beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, Aug. 30.  Qualifying will air on NBC Sports Network at 7:00 p.m. ET on Friday, Aug. 29. For the latest trackside updates from SFHR, follow @SFHRindy on Twitter.
