Carlin Racing’s Max Chilton in the No.59 Gallagher Chevrolet says he is excited to be getting back to racing in the NTT IndyCar Series this weekend with the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
Chilton will continue to run a partial IndyCar Series programme on road and street courses as well as the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge on August 23.
Chilton is hopeful that he can continue Carlin’s strong start to the 2020 season after Conor Daly ended the Genesys 300 at Texas Motor Speedway in 6th place. Speaking ahead of GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis this weekend Chilton said:
I couldn’t be more excited to get back behind the wheel of the No. 59 Gallagher Carlin Chevrolet this weekend on the road course at IMS after being out of the car for so long. It’s been a long time to be away from a racetrack, but I’ve been putting in a lot of time at my home gym and thankfully I was able to get some time on the sim last week as well as some testing in one of Carlin’s F3 cars at Silverstone to get back into the swing of things. I love being at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and really enjoy driving the road course layout there, so I’ve been anxious to get back over to the US for this one. Conor (Daly) and the team did a great job in Texas a few weeks ago and got us off to a great start, so I’m hoping I can keep us moving in that direction and come away with another solid result for Carlin and Gallagher.”
