Meyer Shank Racing’s Helio Castroneves in the No.06 MSR Honda who won the 105th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge in 2021 came home in seventh place in Sunday’s 106th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.
The 106th Running of the Indianapolis 500 did not disappoint as nearly 300,000 fans came back home again to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Memorial Day weekend classic. Following Meyer Shank Racing’s (MSR) breakthrough and hugely popular victory in the 2021 edition of the Indianapolis 500, MSR once again delivered another strong outing with both team entries.
Meyer Shank Racing drivers Helio Castroneves and Simon Pagenaud emerged from a two lap shootout following a late race red flag to finish seventh and eighth respectively.
Between MSR’s two car lineup, the team improved 28 positions through the nearly three-hour event, with Castroneves claiming the biggest mover of the race following a 20 position improvement from his 27th place qualifying effort onboard the No. 06 AutoNation / SiriusXM Honda.
