Harding Racing’s Patricio O’Ward and his team mate Colton Herta are excited about this weekend’s Verizon IndyCar Series season finale Grand Prix of Sonoma where they will both make their race debuts.
Speaking ahead of the race, O’Ward said:
I honestly am really grateful for the opportunity that presented in front of me by Harding Racing, and I got to drive an Indy car a few days ago in Sonoma, and I also really loved, loved the car. It is fast. It is very grippy, and it’s basically like an Indy Lights car, just so much faster and so much more grip. I honestly couldn’t be more excited for my first Verizon IndyCar Series race. It’s going to be my debut, and I was really, really satisfied and happy with the testing, so I’m looking forward to the weekend.”
Colton Herta commented by saying:
I’m super happy to get my start in (the Verizon) IndyCar (Series this) weekend for the Sonoma Grand Prix. (Team owner) Mike Harding and (team president) Brian Barnhart have been very supportive in this effort and I can’t think of a better place to get my start in (the) IndyCar (Series). There are too many people to thank for this opportunity, but I’m very thankful for Harding Racing.
