IndyCar Series drivers will have more horsepower on road courses next season.

The series announced Tuesday that a total of approximately 60 additional horsepower will be available for push-to-pass activations during the 11 road- and street-course races in 2016, nearly doubling that in 2015.

The move was the first on-track change by Jay Frye, IndyCar's new president of competition and operations. Frye succeeded Derrick Walker, who stepped down at the end of the season.
