Rob Edwards, Chief Operating Officer with Andretti Global says that the team are hoping to carry the momentum that they had on the streets of Detroit to this weekend’s XPEL Grand Prix of Road America.

The diversity of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES is highlighted again as we move from the Streets of Detroit to the natural terrain of Road America. Coming off a strong weekend across all three cars in Detroit, we look forward to building on that momentum as we return to permanent road course racing.”

Andretti Global scored a podium finish in Detroit with Marcus Ericsson crossing the line in second while Kyle Kirkwood was fourth.

Marcus Ericsson, who scored his maiden Andretti Global podium is looking forward to Road America this weekend.

Road America is one my favorite tracks on the calendar. It is one of the nicest road courses of the season that has interesting corners and offers a lot of overtaking opportunities. After a podium finish in Detroit, I’m excited to take on another race this weekend in the Delaware Life Honda.”

Kyle Kirkwood is also looking forward to the race this weekend in the No.27 AutoNation Honda.

“Road America is a very high-speed track that we all love going to each year. Last year’s race was a tough one for the AutoNation crew, but we were able to secure a top-10 finish. We had a great weekend on the Streets of Detroit, so I’m looking forward to taking on Road America.”

Colton Herta had a strong start to the Detroit Grand Prix having started the race from pole, however he was caught up in an incident when he clipped a barrier and came home in 19th place, one lap down on race winner Scott Dixon.

Road America is an incredible track that always produces exciting racing and great crowds. I have had success at the track in the past, so I’m looking forward to seeing what the No. 26 crew can do this weekend. It’s definitely a track that I look forward to returning to each year.”
