Arrow McLaren SP’s Pato O’Ward in the No.5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet says that the team is still in the hunt for the championship and with four races remaining in the 2021 NTT IndyCar Series season the team is going for it as the Mexican is in second place in the championship behind championship leader Alex Palou.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend, O’Ward said:
“Looking back at last year, Gateway was one of the best weekends that we had, and we’ll be looking to go one place better this weekend. I think we have very strong cars on short ovals, and I’m excited to see what our package can do this weekend. We’re going to be going for it. We’re closing out the championship, there’s only four more rounds, and we’re in the fight.”
Felix Rosenqvist in the No.7 Vuse Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet is pumped to be heading to Gateway and speaking ahead of the race weekend he said:
“I’m really pumped to go back to Gateway, just to go to an oval in general. I think everyone is pretty excited to do some left turns again. I think Arrow McLaren SP has proven to be really strong at World Wide Technology Raceway and it should be a fun weekend.”
Arrow McLaren SP President Taylor Kiel commented saying:
“We’re excited to be at Gateway, it’s always a great event. They do such a great job there promoting the event and getting a lot of fans out, so the environment is always really good. I’m also excited to be back on the oval. I feel like our Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolets are very well adapted and suited to ovals and we’ve done a good job there in the past. We had two podiums there last year, felt like we left some on the table so we’re hoping to make that right for this year and try get one of our cars on that top step.”
