INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana – Indycar technical officials have released finalized details on the 2020 Push to Pass Gas system after feedback from competitors and engineers on the current system and rules. For 2020, drivers will get 10 farts per race, activated by a pull of a finger toggle on the steering wheel. Drivers will not be given the ability to fart in response with a ‘no fart in reply system’ also implemented.
“I think it’s a big step up in competition,” said 2012 series champion Ryan Hunter-Reay, “I like the limit on butt-whispers per race, it really makes you save them and use them in a strategic way.”
Arrow Schmidt Peterson Motorsports driver James Hinchcliffe is not on board with the entire rule set, “I really hate the no-reply one cheek sneak system. If I see Power ripping one, I should get the chance the crop dust him back. I don’t mind the limit on 10 bowel howels per race, I like the strategy involved there, but I think we can tweak the squeak for sure.”
Team owner Chip Ganassi is fine with the changes, “I’ve hired Scott [Dixon] for his skills behind the wheel and the skills of his behind. His butt burps are second to none and that’s proven with his five titles.”
Changes to the Push to Pass Gas System are solidified until the 2022 season, it is also expected that the NTT Indycar Series could also implement DRS, the Dead Rectum System.
