Dale Coyne Racing with Rick Ware Racing’s Romain Grosjean in the No.51 Nurtec ODT Honda who claimed his second NTT IndyCar Series podium finish at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday after he came home in second place in the Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the road course having started the race from third place on the grid says he is focused on the NTT IndyCar Series.

Grosjean who scored his second podium finish at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since May following his maiden podium finish at the GMR Grand Prix says that he is not keen on trying NASCAR.

The Frenchman was asked during the post-race press conference on Saturday if he would use his connections with Rick Ware Racing to NASCAR to which he said:

Well, I wouldn’t do it in the same weekend, that’s for sure. I think it’s pushing — it’s hard enough if you want to be competitive in INDYCAR; you need to focus on it. I don’t think you have time to go jumping in another car.

Obviously they look good on track. I was surprised yesterday, I wanted to watch them — even though it was only — it was Xfinity, but they were good. They sound great and they could be fun, and then I actually drove one in Austin with Tony Stewart back in 2018, and Kevin Magnussen and I, we had a lot of fun. It was cool. It’s heavy. It’s got a little downforce. But it was fun. Again, never say never.

I’m also tempted by a midget. I want to see the dirt track down there, and who knows, I may give it a go eventually.
