Race Results

Andretti INDY NXT


“All around really good job for the No. 26 crew, I’m super happy with today’s outcome. During the race I knew my tires were good since I was looking after them the whole time, and that let me pull away from Jacob [Abel] and win the race. I learned from yesterday and was able turn that experience here into a win today. Massive thank you to my sponsors for making this happen and I’m looking forward to doing the same in Detroit.”


“It was a really difficult weekend for us. Started off really promising both races and we were the third quickest in practice and the fastest rookie. That speed transfered into the races, but we just got caught up in incidents. It’s just one of those things that’s really difficult. We have a good car and I think that we can turn things around in the future. It’s only a matter of time until we start getting the results that we deserve. Thanks to Andretti for giving me a great car.”


“Today was super frustrating. We had a good one going in the beginning of the race, but then some electrical issues came up and that meant that we couldn’t really progress anymore. I stuck it out until the end, but I still feel a bit gutted to lose what would have been, I think, maybe a top-five or maybe another podium finish today. So, great weekend as a whole, but a bit of a bittersweet ending.”


“It was a coulda, woulda, shoulda kind of weekend. There was a lot of pace, however, we just had a messy start after getting hit and knocked out of position. We fell back and then just climbed our way back forward. I think the pace was awesome and it was a hard fought fourth position. I don’t think I ever fought so hard for a top-five finish, but now we’re onto Detroit.”


“We got another top-10 for the Championship and we’re obviously happy with that. It was a bit of a rough start and with some chaos up at the front set us back a bit, but I eventually moved back up. We’ve definitely improved our pace, which is what we were hoping to do. So we’ll take the points and see everyone in Detroit.”


“I’m feeling really proud of that one. That run was much better today than it was yesterday in terms of results. The Andretti Cape crew definitely put together a great car for this weekend. We worked our way up from ninth to sixth place all while Nolan [Siegel] and James [Roe] were fighting it out, and I just couldn’t make it happen in those last couple of laps to keep moving up. I’m really proud of what the team and I did together today. A big thank you to Rising Star Racing and Priority Technology Holdings for making this happen for me and I’m looking forward to seeing what we can do at the next one.”
