Arrow McLaren’s Felix Rosenqvist in the No.6 NTT DATA Chevrolet had a great day in the Hy-Vee One Step 250 presented by Gatorade at Iowa Speedway on Sunday. Starting the race from 16th place he came through the field from 16th place on the grid to finish the race in fourth place just off the podium and speaking following the action the Swede commented saying:

“Big thanks to Arrow McLaren and NTT DATA, just a phenomenal car, and congrats to Team Chevy on the win. We had a lot of speed here this weekend and a few mega stints to push from P16 to finishing P4. We got through traffic pretty smoothly until we’d get held up by some lapped traffic. The restart didn’t go that well, and then I was on the outside of Will Power and he pushed me up into the marbles. Anyways, big shout out to the team. We were scratching our heads a bit after yesterday’s race, so it was a hell of a turnaround.”

Pato O’Ward in the No.5 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet started the race from 11th and came home in 10th place and speaking following the action he commented saying:

”I don’t have an explanation for what happened today. We obviously went the wrong way, at least that’s what it seems like. The team is going to sit down and see what we missed in that transfer from yesterday. The pure fact that we didn’t end up in an accident with ourselves or someone else feels like a win. I don’t know. You come into these weekends knowing where you usually have been in the past and with a chance to be able to kind of bounce back, and obviously today it feels like we threw that away. I don’t have an explanation for that, and I don’t think any of us really know why. It felt like it was the right direction, and I’m just confused.”

Alexander ROssi started the race in 18th place and came home in 15th and speaking following the action he commented saying:

”This was pretty much a lost weekend for us. With it being a doubleheader, double points, we needed to capitalize here, and it just didn’t happen. We were outside the window and just didn’t have the pace we needed to compete. We have a lot to look into before Nashville. We’re all hungry for more than what it showed this weekend.”

Gavin Ward, Race Director of Arrow McLaren commented saying:

“Felix showed some speed here today, and he was right in the fight there until the end for the win. He got a little unlucky with the restart, and it didn’t quite go our way, but it was a great result for the whole No. 6 NTT DATA Arrow McLaren Chevrolet crew. Pato was right up there for the first half of the race. Then, all of a sudden, seemed to struggle with the rear. We’ll have to look into why. It seemed like Alexander’s car went the same way, too–loose with the balance. Around here, that’s pretty tough to handle, so he did a good job bringing it home in one piece.”
