NO. 26 GAINBRIDGE HONDA “I love going to Road America. It’s a great track and we nearly won there last year. I think we had a good car in Detroit but we weren’t able to capitalize on it. So hopefully we can get something together this weekend.”
NO. 27 NAPA AUTO PARTS / AUTONATION HONDA “These back-to-back weekends are a blessing when things are going well. Really happy with the progress the whole 27 team has made and we are excited about our prospects at Road America – a track we’ve had some great moments at in the past.”
NO. 28 UNIFIRST / DHL HONDA “I love Road America, it reminds me of Spa Francorchamps in Europe. The atmosphere and the fans at the track are some of the best. It’s a really high-speed track with some great opportunities for overtaking and racing. I’m very much looking forward to the weekend.”

ANDRETTI STEINBRENNER AUTOSPORT
“It’s one of my favorite tracks on the calendar. It’s a very fast road course and one I’ve always been a fan of. I did my very first race with Andretti Autosport at Road America back in 2020 with Indy Pro. I debuted on pole and led every lap until the end. Hopefully, we can find success this weekend.”
CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER, ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT
“From the concrete alleys of Belle Isle to the flowing turns of Road America, the variety of tracks that we race on is what makes INDYCAR unique. We’re looking forward to carrying the momentum from Detroit into the weekend. Road America has been good to all four of our drivers previously and we hope to add more success before the break in the schedule.”
