Santino Ferrucci in the No.14 Sexton Properties AJ Foyt Racing Chevrolet came through the first lap chaos in the XPEL Grand Prix at Road America making up four spots from his 19th place start to finish the race in 15th place and maintains his 12th place in the drivers championship as the teams head to the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in two weeks.

“Honestly really solid day, just unfortunate with the start of the race. Smokescreen…the last thing I saw was Herta was sideways and I didn’t want to go straight through and potentially hit him and kill both of our cars, so avoided by going through the grass. “We came back, had a killer strategy with the Sexton Properties Chevrolet. On the second to last stop the car wouldn’t go into neutral for some reason, so we’re going to investigate why that is because I pressed the button and nothing happened. I think that killed our top ten run but we still managed to finish fifteenth, so happy with that.”

Sting Ray Robb was handed a drive-through penalty for causing an avoidable collision but fought back to finish the race in 17th place to score his second best finish of the 2024 season.

Speaking following the action he said:

“Another crazy IndyCar race. “The start was exciting. We moved up a lot of spots on lap one which was really good. I got into it with Rosenquist there towards the beginning of the race and rightfully deserved a penalty so we went back behind him a few spots. I don’t want to race like that; I want to race clean with these guys but we were pushing hard which is just normal racing here in Indy car.

“I’m really proud of the team. “We had good pace today. We went forward a lot and having the Goodheart crew here this weekend was really fun as well. I’m hoping that the next few races we will keep building momentum. But from here, I think that we’re doing pretty good.”
