Ed Carpenter Racing’s Spencer Pigot and Jordan are excited to get the month of May’s racing activity underway with the IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
Pigot who is back in the familiar blue with primary sponsorship from Preferred Freezer Services for the No.21 Chevrolet goes into this weekend’s race aiming to build on the ninth place finish he scored here last season with Ed Carpenter Racing.
The 24 year old American who has stepped up to the full-time drive in the No.21 Chevrolet commented ahead of the race saying:
It is always the best time of the year when we get to race around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Obviously, we have the Indianapolis 500, but first we get to race the road course for the INDYCAR Grand Prix. Ed Carpenter Racing is really excited to go back to the GP where we had a really strong race last year. Hopefully we can have similar pace and competitiveness this year in the Preferred Freezer Services car and start off the Month of May strong
Jordan King will race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the first time in his career and the 24 year old Verizon IndyCar Series rookie who has been extremely impressive so far during his first season in the series with ECR is excited to get the opportunity to race at the Brickyard.
I feel confident going into the INDYCAR Grand Prix this weekend and there is definitely a bit of buzz around Indianapolis about it as well! This is the first circuit I have been able to spend a day testing at prior to the race weekend so I am sure that will help. We were really quick at the test and we are looking to continue where we left off with the Fuzzy’s Vodka car!
