Colton Herta and the #88 Capstone Turbine Honda sweep the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca
Monterey, Calif. (September 22, 2019) Colton Herta and the No. 88 Capstone Turbine Honda team dominated the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca this weekend after pacing the field in Thursday’s open test, securing the pole starting position, and leading 84 of 90 laps to win today’s race.
Herta finishes seventh in the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series championship standings with two wins, three pole starting positions, seven Firestone Fast Six starts, and eight top-ten finishes.
“I’m incredibly happy with how today went,” said Colton Herta. “It was spectacular! The No. 88 Capstone Turbine Honda car was amazing today, and the crew guys had three fantastic pit stops. Now, I’m ready for some victory tacos after today’s win. The end of today’s race was really tough with Will Power right behind me, but we were able to hold him off. It means a lot to come home with a victory at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca and to finish the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series season on a high.”
“It was incredible to finish off the 2019 NTT IndyCar Series with a win,” said co-team owner, George MichaelSteinbrenner IV. “Overall this was Harding Steinbrenner Racing’s best weekend. The crew executed the pit stops perfectly and Colton drove a race where you couldn’t distinguish him from the INDYCAR veterans. It was a great way to end the season and look forward to the future.”
The 2020 season begins along the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida on Sunday, March 15 for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Colton will continue to drive the No. 88 in the 2020 NTT IndyCar Series season with Andretti Harding Steinbrenner Autosport.
