2015 Honda IndyCar Aero Kit is Another Way of Living In the Fast Lane

After the 2015 Chevrolet IndyCar showed us in February its road course / short oval aero kit, Honda Performance Development followed suit with even more dramatic-looking aerodynamic kit. Don't know about you, but the 2015 season of the Verizon IndyCar Series gets better and better as days pass by.
