Chip Ganassi Racing’s <arcus Armstrong in the No.11 Ridgeline Honda says he is excited about the repaved WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, which hosts this weekend’s 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season finale.

Speaking to Paddock Eye during a conference call on Thursday after it was announced that he will compete full-time in the NTT UBDTCAR SERIES with Chip Ganassi in 2024, he commented saying:

Very excited. I like the fact that it’s been repaved, so it’s like Road America in a way. Obviously Road America was repaved, and the grip was extremely high. I think it will be similar here. They’re very physical circuits that I expect our car to be strong.

So it’s top that we have an extra test day that I can get my eye in and not be taken by surprise by anything tomorrow through practice one.

When we asked him about which oval is he looking forward to most next season other than the Indianapolis 500, Armstrong said:

I haven’t seen a schedule yet, but having watched the races this year, Iowa looks like a lot of fun. It looked like chaos at one point but a lot of fun. You said apart from Indy 500, but the Indy 500 is extremely special. That will be circled 50,000 times on my calendar.

I don’t know, I think every single race I’m looking forward to, especially on the oval side because it will be a completely new thing for me.

Armstrong heads into the weekend leading the rookie championship by 26 points.
