AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Josef Newgarden is chasing a third career IndyCar championship in 2020. He could be the first back-to-back winner in nearly a decade. He says he would trade a third title this season to win the Indianapolis 500. The 29-year-old has yet to win the series' biggest race. He has only one podium finish in eight tries. IndyCar drivers are gathered in Texas this week for preseason testing.  The season begins March 15 in Florida at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.
