Meyer Shank Racing team co-owner and four-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves in the MSR w/ Curb Agajanian No. 06 Cleveland Cliffs Honda had a great practice day on Wednesday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as the Brazilian ended the day in tenth place having set a fastest speed of 226.213MPH completing 54 laps and speaking following the action he said:

We were able to avoid a little bit of the weather. The car is brand new and it seems to be going in the right direction which is great. This whole team is new and have never really worked together, but you would never know that. Everyone is really gelling and working well together. I’m looking forward to hopefully avoiding the rain tomorrow so that we can continue working and get ready for Fast Friday

Felix Rosenqvist in the No.60 AutoNation / Sirius XM Honda was 13th fastest with a speed of 225.326MPH and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“It was a pretty productive day, I think we only missed out on about half the day because of the rain. I think the car is in the window, it feels good in traffic and in clean air. Now we’ll go back and look at everything and talk to our teammates and see what we can improve for tomorrow.”

Tom Blomqvist in the No.66 AutoNation / Arctic Wolf Honda ended the say in 28th place with a speed of 223.950MPH and speaking following the action he said:

The first time, properly, on track for me with a load of other cars. I learned so much today and it was really about focusing on myself and not necessarily all about the car. I’ve got a bunch of really great teammates so I can lean on them for set up advice. I’ve just been trying to build up that confidence, it’s just so new to me. I’m feeing better and better with every lap.”
