Meyer Shank Racing’s Helio Castroneves in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda heads into this weekend’s Honda Indy Toronto as the defending race winner.
The NTT IndyCar Series returns to Canada for the first time since 2019 and when the series was here in 2019, Simon Pagenaud took victory for Team Penske speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, the Frenchman who is now driving for Meyer Shank Racing commented saying:
“I can’t wait to go back to Toronto, it was such a great event back in 2019 and I won the race! It’s a race track that I really enjoy. I love the rhythm of the track and it’s a place that I feel very comfortable at. We have an amazing street course package with Meyer Shank Racing, so obviously it’s a weekend that I’m really looking forward to. Hopefully we execute perfectly all weekend and end up with some hardware at the end.”
Helio Castroneves in the No.05 Sirius XM Honda is also excited for the return of Toronto and speaking ahead of the race this weekend he commented saying:
“I’m super excited for Toronto and first of all, coming back after so many years – my last race in Toronto was in 2017 and I remember we were having a blast there. I’m sure the Canadian fans are really excited to have IndyCar back there again as well. Myself and Simon are really looking forward to it, especially after Detroit qualifying. We showed a lot of speed on the street courses, so hopefully we can have another strong weekend.”
