Alex Palou in the No.10 American Legion Chip Ganassi Racing Honda heads into this weekend’s Sonsio Grand Prix of Road America aiming to extend his championship lead following his victory last time out in Detroit.
It’s been a good start to the season so far and it feels like the No. 10 car has been on a roll. We’ve had really good races since the month of May, and we want to continue that. We’re going to my favorite road course of the year with that brand new pavement that we haven’t tried, just like the other teams. We’ve been working hard with the simulator and back at the shop to make sure we’re ready.”
Marcus Ericsson in the No.8 Huski Iced Spritz heads into the weekend aiming to build on a solid start to the season as he occupies second place in the championship.
“Road America this weekend, and it is one of my absolute favorites. It’s the best road course of the season, no doubt. It’s a track where we finished second last year, so good memories from there. Obviously, we want to make the top step this weekend, though. We’re coming into the race with a really good feeling. We’ve had a good start to the season with all seven races in the top-10 and sitting second in the championship. It will be interesting this weekend with the new surface laid down at Road America and it’ll be something to follow. The atmosphere is always amazing with so many people and it being such a beautiful place to go race at. I’m really looking forward to the weekend.”
Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda has two victories here in Road America and looking ahead to the weekend the Iceman said:
This is one of the cool, old-school tracks that we get to go to. There are some unknowns with the resurfacing, but it sounds like it’s a really fast track with possibilities of breaking the all-time records with some of the test times that we’ve seen. Love the high-grip circuits and hopefully that plays well for us. It’s been great to us in the past as a team.”
Marcus Armstrong in the No.11 Ridgeline Lubricants Chip Ganassi Racing heads to Road America for the first in INDYCAR and looking ahead to the race he says:
This is a great track, which has obviously been resurfaced, and it should make a big difference to the car set-up and philosophy. I think it’ll be a good advantage to have tested there last week. I enjoyed the track and I feel like it reminded me of a lot of racing in Spa with the nature of the circuit, the layout and the style of driving. I’m looking forward to it and feel like it’ll be a great weekend, as well
