Meyer Shank Racing’s Helio Castroneves in the No.06 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda says he is excited to be heading back to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the first time since winning his fourth Indianapolis 500 as the NTT IndyCar Series gets ready for the Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
The Brazilian heads into the weekend with plenty of momentum following a ninth-place finish in the inaugural Big Machine Music City Grand Prix on the streets of Nashville last weekend and speaking ahead of the race this weekend he said:
I’m very excited to go back to IMS. “IMS is such a special place, and it now holds such an importance to me and Meyer Shank Racing after winning the Indy 500. It’s a new weekend and our focus hasn’t changed. I think we had some good pace in Nashville and now we can start getting into a groove of racing again. Hopefully Indy can bring us some more luck on Saturday and we can come home with another win!”
Jack Harvey in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda is looking forward to this weekend’s race at a track where he scored his first IndyCar Series podium in 2019 where he finished in third place having started the event in third place and speaking ahead of this weekend 85 lap race on the Indy road course he commented saying:
“Indy is a track that we’ve always done well at and it’s guaranteed to be a good race. “We can take confidence into the weekend that we do know what a fast car looks like there and how it needs to be driven. So, we’re optimistic heading into the weekend and I don’t see any reason why we can’t go and fight for a win.”
