Meyer Shank Racing’s Simon Pagenaud in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda and his team-mate Helio Castroneves in the No.06 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda are excited about this weekend’s doubleheader as the NTT IndyCar Series returns to Iowa Speedway.
In our last visit here in 2020, Simon Pagenaud took victory, and speaking ahead of the race this weekend he commented saying:
“It’s onto Iowa – the next few weeks are going to be crazy. Two races at Iowa and it is one of my favorite short ovals. I won there in 2020 and hopefully we can try and repeat that this year. Right now we are very consistent and if we can keep being consistent like this – with some top fives and sixes – we can have a really great end of the year.”
Helio Castroneves in the No.06 AutoNation Honda took victory here in 2017, the last time he competed in Iowa and speaking ahead of the race he said:
“I’m looking forward to going back to Iowa, it’s a place where I had my last short oval win in 2017. It’s a great track and this year is gong to be phenomenal, there is not only one race but two races and then there are the concerts. I’m really looking forward to going back to Iowa and hopefully we can pick up where I left off in 2017.”
