Quotable:
“It’s been great having the races in Indianapolis. Just to come back and get a chance to do what we do has been awesome. That’s all we can ask for right now. We’re grateful to be able to come back to racing. After everything that’s happened, it’s been easier on most of the teams being based here. It’s always great to be able to be with your family. And, of course, Indianapolis is the mecca of racing. To be here and see all the interest from the fans has been great. Last race, we had fans come in here from the east coast, telling us they’re here for us and showing some amazing support. That’s an incredible feeling just to know that they made the trip to see us; it’s pretty awesome.”
