Meyer Shank Racing head to the Chevrolet Belle Isle Grand Prix doubleheader in Detroit this weekend fresh from their Indianapolis 500 success ready for another fight as the NTT IndyCar Series returns to track activity in the Motor City for the first time since 2019. Jack Harvey in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda heads to Detroit for the first time and will be hoping to continue hs strong road and street course momentum.
Speaking ahead of the races this weekend he said:
“I’m definitely excited to hit the reset button and head into Detroit. “Street courses are one of my favorite kinds of circuits to race on and I’m really excited to experience Detroit for the first time. Hopefully it will be a good weekend for the team.
This weekend also marks the first street course event of the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship season with Meyer Shank Racing’s Dane Cameron Olivier Pla in action, driving the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM DPi and speaking ahead of the event, Cameron said:
First of all, I’m so happy and proud of the team for the massive Indy 500 win, it’s such a huge achievement for everyone. “I am super excited to be heading back to Detroit, its one of my favorite rounds on the calendar and I was really bummed we weren’t able to race there in 2020. Its a super fun layout and it will be great to have fans back in the paddock for the first time! The result at Mid-Ohio wasn’t what we wanted, but we had some good speed so I’m hoping we can put it all together this weekend and get a win.
Just like Jack Harvey in the NTT IndyCar Series, Olivier Pla will make his Detroit debut in the IMSA championship and speaking ahead of the weekend he said:
“I’m looking forward to the Detroit weekend, I really love driving on street circuits and I always felt very comfortable racing at tracks like this one. “Like Mid-Ohio, it will be a tricky race with the strategy and the traffic, but we are ready for the action and hopefully can give MSR a good result.”
