Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race at IMS, Romain Grosjean said:
“Last year the races at IMS went well for me with one pole and two, second-place finishes. This year we will try to do as well or better. I feel like we do have a very fast car and are ready to win.”
Colton Herta in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda is also looking forward to this weekend’s event saying:
“Really excited to be back in Indianapolis. The Grand Prix is always an exciting kick-off for the month of May. We’ve had very good pace in the past and are hopeful we will keep that trend going into this weekend.”
Alexander Rossi in the No.27 NAPA Auto Parts AutoNation Honda is excited to be heading to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway saying:
“Hopefully, this weekend goes better than it has been going for us. It is pretty much 50/50 at this point. We have had moderate success in the GMR Grand Prix in the past but moderate success is ultimately hard to quantify. We will go out there and do our best as we kick off the most important month of the year.”
Devlin DeFrancesco in the No.29 PowerTap Honda is also looking forward to this weekend saying:
“I’m super excited for the Andretti Steinbrenner No. 29 PowerTap Honda to take to the track for the GMR GP, it’s on a track I know from Indy Lights, and I think I was quite fast there. So, I’m looking forward to going back with the NTT INDYCAR SERIES. I’m looking forward to going out and hopefully getting a good result before the Indy 500.”
Chief Operating Officer Rob Edwards says the team is looking forward to this weekend’s race and is hopeful that the team can give off their month of May with a win.
“Indianapolis in May. The GMR GP is a great opportunity to kick things off with a win before we turn our focus to the 500. We’ve had fast cars at Long Beach and Barber and we’ll be looking to continue that on the Indianapolis Road Course.”
