Race Results

Andretti INDY NXT


“I’m really happy with the win out here in Detroit today, many thanks to Andretti. We managed our push-to-pass and tires well and love the momentum that we have going. The No. 26 Copart / Novara team gave me a great car this weekend and I can’t wait to see our pace build throughout the season. We’ll take this momentum into Road America.”


“It was a really unfortunate end to the weekend. I made a mistake and got some oversteer and hit the inside wall, which bounced me to the outside and ended our race. It’s a shame, we had a good car and I’ve been learning all weekend making improvements. Onto the next one at Road America.”


“Today was super frustrating. It was just another one of those unfortunate situations. We were fighting in the top five and got a puncture on the rear tire. We got back up to 12th with the attrition in the race, but it was still pretty frustrating. Onto the next.”


“Obviously not an ideal race today. We had a good start but got called for blocking and had to give three spots back. Then we were settling in and making our way back to where we were running until the last restart where we just lost the rear into another car. We have the speed, so we’ll have to review our day and make sure that we’re all set to come in strong in Road America.”


“It feels good to have a P7 on the books today even though it was a rough quali yesterday. We had to fight for it but everything turned out very well in the end and the No. 3 Grupo Indi team kept their heads down. We made up a lot of on-track positions and we had a lot of luck in this race. The pace is coming and I will keep working as hard as I can to get up near the top finishes soon.”


“The result isn’t where we wanted to be since we had a bit of contact and spun fighting with Abel for the last spot on the podium. But, I couldn’t be more proud of the Andretti Cape team and Flatrock Motorclub for giving me the opportunity to race here in Detroit. It was wicked fast today and I’m disappointed that we couldn’t bring home the result we deserved. I’m proud of the team but I made a mistake. Congrats to Louis and the team, and hoping we can try for better results in the future.”
