Dalton Kellett who makes his NTT IndyCar Series race debut this weekend in the No.14 K Line Insulators Chevrolet for AJ Foyt Racing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course for the GMR Grand Prox of Indianapolis says he is excited to get his season underway.
Speaking ahead of the race the Canadian commented saying:
I’m excited to get my season underway at the GMR Grand Prix. I couldn’t be more grateful for the chance to make my debut in the No. 14 K-Line Insulators USA Chevrolet! With the long delay to the start of my season, it will be important to maximize all available track time – especially given the condensed schedule. As a rookie, I expect there to be obstacles to overcome and new challenges to face. I am confident in the team we have put together to take these on. The goal is to perform well and learn the most that I can in my rookie event.
Charlie Kimball in the No.4 Tresiba Chevrolet is aiming for a strong weekend having had a great race in Texas last month coming home in eleventh place just behind team mate Tony Kanaan and speaking ahead of the race he commented saying:
While the GMR Grand Prix usually kicks off the Month of May, this year’s race is just as exciting as INDYCAR and NASCAR come together to celebrate the July 4th weekend with a historic doubleheader. I’ve had great results on the IMS road course in the past and can’t wait to get on track for my first road course in the No. 4 TRESIBA Chevrolet for AJ Foyt Racing! The opportunity to race for A.J. is always special – it means even more when it’s at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!”
