Meyer Shank Racing’s Helio Castroneves in the No.06 Sirius XM AutoNation Honda is looking forward to this weekend’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at World Wide Technology Raceway on Saturday night.
The race will be the first time in four years that the Brazilian will compete at the track and speaking ahead of the final oval race of the year he says:
Wow, I’m so excited to head back to Gateway. My first race there was actually in 1999 and I finished second. I lost to Michael Andretti and that was such a cool race. I love the track – it’s fun, it’s difficult. I can’t wait to go back after so many years [4 years], we are going to have a great time.
Simon Pagenaud in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda is excited about the race saying:
World Wide technology Raceway in St. Louis is a really interesting event because it’s a short oval, very fast and it’s the only event that we run at night. It’s very enjoyable, great racing and it’s always very tight and it’s a street fight I like to say. I’ve had some good races there – and also some not so good race there. I’m looking forward to going there with Meyer Shank Racing and try to push as far as we can and execute. We’ve improved so much every weekend, I’m very hopeful for this one.”
