AJ Foyt Racing Team President Larry Foyt says that it is great that Michael Cannon is returning to the team for the 2024 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season is great, particularly given the introduction of the new hybrid technology which will make its race debut following the Indianapolis 500 in May. Foyt says he and the team are excited about their alliance with Team Penske.
Speaking to Paddock Eye during a Zoom conference call on Friday after announcing that Sting Ray Robb will join the team to drive the No.41 Chevrolet for his sophomore season in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, Larry Foyt commented:
Yeah, like I was saying, it is a new technology for all of us, for all the teams. Really excited with the Penske alliance because I think that’s going to really help us on the hybrid side because they had some experience with it.
Now having Cannon back is great. We’ve had some new additions as well on the engineering side that I’m really excited about. The team just has a good feel going forward right now. Man, I know this off-season it seems long, but it’s not because there’s still a lot going on. Guys are doing pit stops every day. We’re trying to work on all those things that we can control and get ready when the hybrid unit comes on. We’re learning that as quick as we can.
