The NTT IndyCar Series newest race winner Rinus Veekay says he is keen to sweep the month of May having claimed his first career victory on Saturday at the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.
Speaking ahead of practice this week at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval, the Dutch driver said:
I’m very keen to try to sweep the month of May. That’s of course my goal. “The mentality and everyone’s confidence is super high at the team, so I think we can definitely go for that win. We’ve had an awesome car last year, and Ed Carpenter Racing has showed the last few years that they have the car to win the ‘500’. I feel super confident.
“First race win takes a lot of pressure off. Now I can just drive the ‘500’, and now it’s just going to be focusing on the best possible result. I want to thank Ed Carpenter Racing for everything they’ve done for me so far, and Chevy for the great engines. Indy 500 coming up, lots of power, lots of speed. I’m sure we’ll be good.”
