Ed Carpenter Racing’s Conor Daly says it is very exciting to kick start the 2021 NTT IndyCar Series season at Barber Motorsports Park this weekend with the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama. Daly returns to the No.20 U.S Air Force Chevrolet for a second year and speaking ahead of the race this weekend he said:
To kick off the season at Barber Motorsports Park is very exciting. It feels like forever since I’ve raced there, back in 2017. I can’t wait to return, what a great circuit! We tested strongly there, which is really encouraging. Both Rinus VeeKay and I have been pretty confident in our cars. To get this season started with the U.S. Air Force and Chevrolet power, I’m so ready for that. We know our car looks cool, now it’s time to go get some trophies with it!
Following a successful rookie season in 2020, Dutch driver Rinus Veekay returns to the cockpit of the No.21 Sonax Chevrolet and speaking ahead of the start of the season he said:
I am excited to start my second season, excited to go racing, excited to get adrenaline in my veins! We had two great tests at Barber Motorsports Park in the offseason and we were fast in both. Of course, that doesn’t say how the race weekend is going to go, but it definitely shows we have the pace. It’s a cool track. I’m super ready and feel very confident, we have a strong car. We should have a good opening weekend of the season!
