Andretti Autosport’s Kyle Kirkwood in the No.27 AutoNation Honda says that it is amazing after claiming his maiden NTT INDYCAR SERIES race victory on the streets on Long Beach.

Starting the race from pole, the Floridan dominated the race coming home ahead of his teammate Romain Grosjean.

This is amazing, man. “What a day. The calmest day I’ve had in two years, and it was a win.

“I was so happy with just the pole yesterday, but I’m over the moon right now. This is incredible for the whole team. We had a stellar day for the whole team with Andretti Autosport.”

Kirkwood went on to explain:

I just had a moment of relaxation (after crossing the finish line), to be honest. “I felt like I needed this win, and we got it today. A moment of relief, no doubt.

Team owner Michael Andretti was delighted saying:

He’s the real deal. We knew it a long time ago when he won the championship for us in the INDY NXT series. We knew he was something special.

Speaking following his second place, Romain Grosjean said:

It’s awesome for Kyle; I’m happy for him. “I wish I was in his position right now, but he drove a hell of a race, like a champ, the whole weekend. He deserved that. We tried everything we could on our end, but it was a fuel situation, so we couldn’t really attack
