Andretti Global’s James Roe is aiming to carry the momentum that he gained at Barber Motorsports Park last time out when he scored a third place finish over to this weekend’s INDY NXT presented by Firestone double-header at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course.

The Naas native is no stranger to success here at Indy having claimed his maiden INDY NXT presented by Firestone podium last season with a second place finish.

After securing a podium in Barber, I’m ready to get back to work and hopefully do the same this weekend in Indianapolis,” said Roe. “Last time I was here in August, we did a front row lockout, and I got my first podium with Andretti INDY NXT. I feel confident on this track and know that the No. 29 Topcon Dallara is fast enough to get us up there on the grid

For the IMS race weekend, Roe has teamed up with another famous Indiana institution, the University of Notre Dame, to run a racing helmet mirroring the iconic gold football helmets of the Fighting Irish – a classic touchstone of the University.

It’s a privilege to wear the gold helmet that has meant so much to generations of Notre Dame football fans – myself included. I’m proud to represent the indomitable spirit shared by the Fighting Irish community in Indiana, in Ireland and across the globe,”

The Irishman is currently tied for seventh in the championship standings heading into the double header weekend.
