Meyer Shank Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda started Sunday’s XPEL Grand Prix of Road America from 22nd place. Unfortunately, for the Swede he got caught up in an incident with AJ Foyt Racing’s Sting Ray Robb, which saw the team opt to go off strategy and call him to pit-road on lap 7.

Rosenqvist was able to recover well to finish the race in P14 and speaking following the race he commented saying:

“It was unfortunate we got taken out at the beginning. We were kind of off strategy trying to save some fuel. We didn’t really have enough pace with the fuel save unfortunately. I honestly think that if we did it again we couldn’t have done anything different, except not getting hit. P14, a very average result but we move forward. I think we were decently quick, just not our luck today.”

Helio Castroneves in the No.66 Arctic Wolff Honda made up eight places in his 27th place start position to finish P19 in what was likely his last NTT INDYCAR SERIES outing until next year’s Indianapolis 500. David Malukas will take over the No.66 Honda from the next race at Laguna Seca.

Speaking following the race, Castroneves said:

Wow. No. 66 The AutoNation / Arctic Wolf machine was actually pretty strong, from starting 27th and finishing 19th. I have to give it up to the guys, they did a great job. Now I pass the baton to David Malukas who is going to take care of it. I’m looking forward to being in his corner. We are going to a test in Milwaukee which I really love so I’ll be there. Hopefully at Laguna we are going to collect more points.
