Meyer Shank Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist in the No.60 Bon Jovi Radio Honda had a fantastic day at the Thermal Club for the $1 million Challenge. The Swede started his heat race from pole and took victory in the event and came home third in the All-Star race and speaking following the action he commented saying:

It was an awesome weekend. We kept cool and did our own thing and maximized the weekend. We won the heat race but I couldn’t really follow Alex (Palou) and Scott (McLaughlin) but overall I’m super pleased for the team, this weekend was a big statement for us moving forward.”

Rosenqvist may not have won the $500,000 but he did come home with a check for $250,000. Tom Blomqvist in the No.66 AutoNation / Sirius XM Honda came home eighth place having started the race from fifth place and speaking following the action he said:

That was actually a hard race. I got a little love tap at the start of the race which messed me up a bit and I lost a position. I thought the format was actually quite exciting and there was definitely a bit of energy around, but it’s of course tough when you don’t make it through to the final round. Overall, it was a pretty fun weekend and we made some progress, now we’re ready to head to Long Beach.”
