McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown says Arrow McLaren has no plans to run a fourth car full-time in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES in 2024. Speaking on Carb Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway ahead of Sunday’s 107th running of the Indianapolis 500, presented by Gainbridge on Friday, Brown said that logistically the team won’t run a fourth car full-time in 2024.
Brown said that they will of course, run a fourth car for Kyle Larson at the 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 next May and that they will move into their new race shop in 2025. Speaking about the possibility of running Marcus Ericsson in 2024 after the defending Indianapolis 500 winner made it clear that he is a free agent next season said that he would always love to run a great driver of Ericsson’s caliber but says that is up to Chip Ganassi Racing. He is not responsible for what Ganassi does commercially.
Brown also said that he had been highly impressed with Felix Rosenqvist this season and will make a decision later in the season and see what they decide to do. Felix Rosenqvist starts the race in third place while Pato O’Ward starts the race in fifth. Alexander Rossi starts the race from seventh while in his final Indianapolis 500, Tony Kanaan will roll off from 9th place.
