Meyer Shank Racing will make its 100th NTT INDYCAR SERIES race start on the streets of Detroit this weekend. The team has come a long way since making their series debut with Jack Harvey at the 101st running of the Indianapolis 500 in 2017.
Since then, the team has gone on to not only go full-time in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, but they have also added a second full-time car; they have received considerable investment from Liberty Media (the owners of F1) after they took up an ownership stake in the team. The outfit led by Michael Shank and Jim Meyer took victory in the Helio Castroneves in 2021. Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race in Detroit. Helio Castroneves commented saying:
“Detroit has always been special for me and I have had a lot of success there, now it will be very interesting with the new track layout. All of the drivers are in the same position with having to learn the new track, so there are a lot of unknowns for us all, but I am looking forward to see how it goes.”
Simon Pagenaud is looking forward to this weekend’s race in Detroit and speaking ahead of the race in the Motor City, the Frenchman said:
“I’m excited about the change in circuit at Detroit this year! A new circuit is always fun for the drivers and the teams to try and figure out the best package for the race car over the weekend. We had a lot of positives come out of the Indianapolis 500, so we will capitalize on that and I look forward to racing in downtown Detroit.”
