The new Dallara IndyCars will incorporate new anti-stall technology provided by McLaren Electronics and AP Racing, starting with this weekend's season opener in St. Petersburg.

Teams have tested the software, which automatically disengages the clutch to keep the engine running on the racetrack and pit lane, at Sebring and Barber Motorsports Park in the past two weeks. The clutch is on the steering wheel, in conjunction with the paddle shift system, with the new Dallara car. The hope is that the anti-stall technology will reduce the number of caution periods for cars that run off course or spin.
