President of Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet Tayly Kiel says that this weekend’s NTT IndyCar Series double-header Hy-Vee Salute To Farmers 300 and the Hy-Veedeals.com 250 at Iowa Speedway will be good for the team as it is where they have and engine partner Chevrolet has been really strong in the past.
The last time the team raced here in 2020, Oliver Askew and Pato O’Ward finished in third and fourth place respectively, and speaking ahead of the race this weekend he said:
“The team is definitely excited to get back to Iowa for the doubleheader coming up. The last time we were there we finished 3rd and 4th with Oliver Askew and Pato respectively. We’ve had race wins there in the past, so it’s a place where the team and Chevy traditionally are very strong. We are looking forward to picking up off where we left in 2020 and continue this momentum from Felix on the podium at Toronto.”
Felix Rosenqvist in the No.7 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet heads to the double-header in Iowa this weekend looking to carry the momentum from his podium in Toronto last time out and looking ahead to the races this weekend he said:
“Good to keep up the busy schedule for another few weeks with the Iowa doubleheader. It’s the same amount of points handed out as the Indianapolis 500 so it’s an important weekend with very little practice opportunity. We are very focused on starting the weekend strong rolling out of the truck!”
Pato O’Ward is also looking forward to competing in Iowa this weekend and will be hoping to bounce back from a tricky weekend in Toronto with strong results.
“I can’t wait to get back to one of the most fun and toughest tracks on the calendar. I was so happy to see Iowa Speedway back on the calendar for the 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. We are ready to give it everything because we have two opportunities to score big points in two days.”
