Helio Castroneves in the No.06 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda is looking forward to closing out the 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season, his last as a full-time driver this weekend at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca, for the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey.
Laguna Seca is a track where I still hold the track record at. However, they did do a little bit of a resurfacing, so my track record might be in jeopardy, but hopefully it will be in jeopardy from me. I am going to try to beat my own record. It’s going to be a lot of fun and we are looking forward to closing out the season.”
Tom Blomqvist in the No.60 AutoNation Sirius XM Honda is looking forward to the final race of the season as he prepares for his first full-time season in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES in 2024.
Once again. it’s going to be another experience-gaining weekend for me at Laguna Seca. It was great to get a full race distance under my belt in Portland and I come into this round with more understanding and knowledge to lean on. Laguna Seca is a legendary circuit, especially within INDYCAR, so I’m extremely excited to take to the track. Unlike Toronto and Portland, I’ve actually raced here before so that gives me some bearing to work with. Obviously, stepping into an Indycar is a different challenge compared to the DPi, but it’s nice to have some experience to lean on.
I’m confident I can do Mike, Jim and the entire team proud this week and continue to make progress with every session so I can go into winter break with more knowledge on the series ahead of 2024!
