Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing will have three cars once again in the field for this weekend’s Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear double-header as Santino Ferrucci returns to the cockpit of the No.45 Hy-Vee Honda following a sixth place finish in last weekend’s Indianapolis 500.
Speaking about the news, Ferrucci said:
I’m excited to compete in the two races in Detroit after a fantastic run at the Indy 500. “To carry the momentum into Detroit is massive for the team. Hy-Vee is partnering with Frito-Lay so we will have Chester Cheetah and the Cheetos brand on the car, which I think is pretty awesome. It’s a fantastic track, and I’m excited to be returning to Detroit since we didn’t get a chance to race there in 2020.
Randy Edeker, Chairman, CEO and President of Hy-Vee commented saying:
The excitement and energy that the Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing team brings forth to our partnership is like none other. The team truly cares about its fans just like we care about our customers at Hy-Vee. Since signing on as a sponsor last year, we’ve heard from people all over the country about our involvement in racing and look forward to what the rest of the season has to offer.”
