Verizon IndyCar Series driver Spencer Pigot commented on the news by saying:
St. Pete has always been a special track for me, especially since I began my Indy car career there in 2016. To have Autogeek on my car as I start my full-time career is just as special!” “The Florida connection just adds to it – since I am from Orlando, I have always considered the Firestone Grand Prix to be my home race with so many friends and family making the drive over. With Autogeek based across the state in Stuart, it’s their home race as well!
