James Roe, the driver of the No.29 Topcon Dallara for Andretti Global, endured a difficult Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear on Sunday as the INDY NXT presented by Firestone championship took to the streets of downtown Detroit.

The Irishman started the race from tenth place and ran well; however, he was handed a three-place drop for blocking while on Lap 42; he was forced to retire from the race following a crash. Speaking following the race, Roe said:

“Obviously not an ideal race today. “We had a good start but got called for blocking and had to give three spots back. Then we were settling in and making our way back to where we were running until the last restart where we just lost the rear into another car. We’ve had the speed every weekend and our full focus is on maintaining and executing it from here forward. Ready to regroup and come back strong at Road America.”

Next up for the INDY NXT presented by Firestone championship is a trip to Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, for the Road America race. Roe enters the weekend in 10th place in the championship.
