“Overall I was really happy with how the test went last week in Sebring. It was our last chance to make any big changes before the season begins, and I think we made some good progress with the Honda package. I’m absolutely stoked to get to the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg! Off-season testing helps keep us sane during the winter, but getting back to the Verizon IndyCar Series race track for a competitive race weekend is what motivates me as a driver. The entire Novo Nordisk Chip Ganassi Racing team is looking for a strong start to the season, and from the race shop to the gym, we’ve all spent the last five months working toward that same goal. Now it’s finally time to put that plan into action.”
