“It’s a bittersweet feeling that the season is coming to an end, but I’m really excited to race on a new track, and finally fight for the championship. I had my first IndyCar test at this track a few weeks ago, and I really loved the track. It’s a short turnaround between race weekends, but I’m already looking forward to getting back into the car.”

“It’s hard to believe that the end of the season is already upon us. It’ll be exciting to finish the season off at Portland International Raceway this weekend because this will be the first time I’ll be racing on a track that I haven’t seen before in a few years, and I’m looking forward to that challenge. We’ve been looking at some on-boarding of the track and it looks like it’ll be a fun track and I think there will be some good racing. It’s an exciting week leading up to the weekend as well because my newest partner, Ten80 Education, is based in Portland and we’ll have a few events with them leading into the weekend.”
