Mazda6 Racer is First Diesel Powered Winner at Indianapolis Motor Speedway

The Mazda6 diesel race car didn’t just bring diesel racing back to Indianapolis Motor Speedway, it also captured the first victory by a diesel-powered race car at the famous track.

Yesterday, the Mazda6 SkyActiv-D race car captured a victory at the Brickyard Grand Prix with the number-70 SpeedSource Castrol Edge Mazda claiming the win in the GX class. Becoming the first diesel to ever win at Indy is a great feat for the new Mazda6 racer, further proving that the Japanese automaker isn’t just a one-trick pony with its rotary engines.
