Linus Lundqvist in the No.8 Be The One American Legion Chip Ganassi Racing Honda was the leading Honda-powered finisher in Sunday’s Children’s Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.

The Swede claimed his maiden INDYCAR SERIES podium with a wonderful drive from 19th on the grid to finish the 90-lap race in third place and speaking to Paddock Eye following the action when asked about the month of May he said:

Sweeping sounds pretty nice (laughter).

But no, the month of May is obviously going to be big, doing it for the first time. You hear so much about it. Being able to participate is like a dream come true.

We’re obviously here to do a job. Ganassi has had a record of having very good cars at the 500. I’m excited to feel that out.

I also realize it’s going to be a learning curve. Like Will said, the field is so competitive nowadays, you’ll take anything you can possibly get.

Obviously this is a nice boost of confidence. We’ll have a week off, but we’re back at it again for the GP and obviously the big one. Yeah, just back to work.
