This weekend sees the NTT INDYCAR SERIES return to on track action. The Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear takes place downtown with Andretti Global aiming to put the frustration of the Indianapolis 500 behind them.

Andretti Global Chief Operating Officer Rob Edwards says:

We’re looking forward to heading to Detroit this weekend to race on the new downtown street circuit. Going right into the next round gives us a great opportunity to put the frustrations of last weekend behind us. There were some bright spots last season in Detroit for the Andretti team and we’ve been strong on the two street circuits so far this season, so we’re hopeful for a good result this weekend. Time to go street fighting.”

Looking ahead to the race in the Motor City, Kyle Kirkwood who was sixth here last year commented saying:

I am excited to return to Detroit this weekend with the AutoNation crew. Last year’s Detroit Grand Prix was one of our best events that didn’t pan out. With the new updates made to the track, I am excited to take on the challenges that come with it.

Marcus Ericsson is also looking forward to the race this weekend saying:

“I have a lot of special memories in Detroit. Racing downtown is a lot different than Belle Isle, where I got my first INDYCAR podium and win, but the new configuration is a cool track that brings unique challenges. I’m excited to get out to this race and see what the No. 28 crew can do.”

Colton Herta in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda is excited about the race in Detroit saying:

Downtown Detroit is a cool street circuit. Last year, we had no previous data since it was a brand-new track for us. After some strong results on street circuits this season, I’m excited to see what the No. 26 crew can do in the Motor City.”
