Meyer Shank Racing’s Simon Pagenaud in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda says it’s time to get some momentum going for the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season.
The Frenchman heads to the PPG375 at Texas Motor Speedway next month aiming to bounce back from a disappointing season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg.
Pagenaud retired from St Pete after being caught up in an accident on the opening lap but is hopeful the team can challenge for victory at a circuit where he has yet to win.
In contrast, Pagenaud’s teammate, Helio Castroneves has won in Texas several times and is hoping he will be in a position to challenge for the win next time out.
The PPG 375 at Texas Motor Speedway, the first oval race of the year takes place April 2.
