Last updated on Friday, June 4, 2010

(FORT WORTH, TX) - The Izod IndyCar Series races at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend.

There will be a one-hour practice session today with qualifying scheduled for this afternoon.

The race is scheduled for Saturday night.

Helio Castroneves is the defending race winner.

Castroneves' teammate at Penske Racing, Will Power, currently owns the points lead.

Power has an eleven-point edge over Indianapolis 500 champion Dario Franchitti.

Tomas Scheckter will fill in for Mike Conway at this weekend's race in Texas.

Conway will be out at least three months after fracturing his left leg and his back in a spectacular crash at last Sunday's Indianapolis 500.

Scheckter drove a third car for Dreyer and Reinbold Racing in the 500, teaming with Conway and Justin Wilson.
