Andretti Global’s Colton Herta, driver of the No.26 Gainbridge Honda says that this Saturday’s Sonsio Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the IMS road course sets the tone for the 108th running of the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge.

Herta goes into this weekend’s race leading the championship by one point from Team Penske’s Will Power.

Looking ahead to this weekend, Herta said:

The Sonsio Grand Prix is a big strategy race that always brings out the best in drivers. I was fortunate to win there in 2022. Overall, it’s just a great race that sets the tone for the Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge. I’m looking forward to getting back to IMS with the 26 crew.”

Kyle Kirkwood in the No.27 AutoNation Honda is excited to get the Month of May underway.

I’m very excited to start the Month of May at the Sonsio Grand Prix. The race allows for quite a bit of passing for a road course, which makes it fun from a driver’s perspective. Recently, we used one of our testing days to better ourselves at this circuit, so we have very high hopes for this event to set the mood for the rest of the month.”

Marcus Ericsson in the No.28 Delaware Life Honda is excited about the Grand Prix this weekend saying:

It’s exciting to be back at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Sonsio Grand Prix. It’s a track that we’ve raced a lot on over the last few years, and it is a great way to start the month of May. The Andretti INDYCAR team has been strong there in the past, so I am looking forward to seeing what the Delaware Life team can do this weekend.”

Andretti Global Chief Operating Officer Rob Edwards says:

The Month of May tradition kicks off with the Sonsio Grand Prix. This will be our only race on the IMS road course this year as we look to rebound from a disappointing event at Barber Motorsports Park. We tested in Indy at the road course at the end of March, so we have some good data and a good baseline to work from. We’re looking to roll into the Indy 500 presented by Gainbridge on the back of a winning weekend.”
