Ed Carpenter Racing head into this weekend’s 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season ending Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg looking to end the season on a high.
Runus Veekay just has to start the race on Sunday to win the Rookie of The Year for 2020 and speaking ahead of the race he said:
“It will be so nice to come back to St. Petersburg! We are finally returning after being there earlier this year, but we were not able to race. Hopefully, I can secure my Rookie of the Year title, it will be a very nice achievement! I am really looking forward to the race. First street course race of the season as the last race, that’s very cool! I’ve always had good races in St. Pete in the Road to Indy and I cannot wait to hustle around there with an Indy car!”
Conor Daly in the No.20 U.S Air Force Chevrolet is looking forward to the race in St Petersburg saying:
“It’s pretty hard to believe my first street course with Ed Carpenter Racing will be in October! It has been a decade since I last won in St. Pete in the Indy Pro 2000 championship, which is wild to think about. Love the track, love the city, love the event. We obviously want to finish strong for the U.S. Air Force, Chevrolet and all of the incredible people that have worked so hard for us all year long. I’m very excited to get down there and get going!”
