Harding Steinbrenner Racing head to Texas Motor Speedway this week ahead of the open test at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on on April 24.
Colton Herta will be in action at Texas Motor Speedway in the No.88 King Taco Honda in order to get his NTT IndyCar Series oval approval.
Herta endured a tough race last time out at the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach having hit the wall on lap 51 and being forced to retire from the race.
Team president Brian Barnhart commented on the race in Long Beach by saying:
“The #88 Harding Steinbrenner team did not do a good enough job for the entire group this weekend. “We had the potential do to well in qualifying, but we did not execute as we certainly could have. We all felt really good about the race car, but, then again, we just didn’t execute as well as we needed to. We lost a bit of track position after our first pitstop, but Colton did a hell of job working his way back up to the tail of the line. He was pretty aggressive while racing with Bourdais. But unfortunately, he got into the barrier and broke the left rear suspension, so we had to call it a day. We’re going to go testing at Texas Motor Speedway this week to get his oval approval, and then it’s onto the Indianapolis Motor Speedway open test and the big race in May.”
