Meyer Shank Racing’s Jack Harvey in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda started today’s Big Machine Spiked Coolers Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course from seventh place and came home in sixth place and speaking following the race he said:

It was a pretty exciting race. We had a good pace from the start and really carried that on throughout the race. It was just a weird sequence a couple of times when we were trying to get around (Alex) Rossi. It might have been that Rossi’s tires were burning off quicker than ours were and we ended up having to spend a lot of overtake just to try and get by him – and in the end weren’t able to. So then we were light on overtake for the rest of the race. The team did really well today. These kinds of performances are what I knew we were capable of all year. There’s a lot of performance and a lot of potential in this team, we all know that, and it’s nice to have a day where you realize that.

Helio Castroneves in the No.06 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda started the race from 23rd place and came home in 21st and speaking following the action he said:

We started conservative and kept it going. The MSR team did a great job, our SiriusXM / AutoNation Honda was improving, but unfortunately we were in 20th position most of the time. We probably would have made up a lot of positions, but we got caught up in the 21 car getting spun in front of me and I had to avoid it and lost some positions. But again, another learning process and we just got to keep it going and I’m looking forward to Portland.
