Grand Prix of Monterey Race Preview

“Although I’ll miss Sonoma after our pole-to-win performance there last year, it’s great to have Laguna Seca back on the INDYCAR schedule. Laguna Seca is one of those iconic tracks that belong on the NTT IndyCar Series calendar. I have some great memories there, most notably winning in Formula Atlantic in 2021 as well as hosting three of our [Racing for Cancer’s] Race to Beat Cancer events at the venue. We’re also looking forward to seeing all of our partners in attendance and running a new livery in honor of DHL’s 50th Anniversary this year.”

For the last four years, the “Corkscrew” had a different meaning when referring to the final race of the season. A corkscrew in the wine country of Sonoma meant opening bottles of Pinot or Chardonnay. This year, the Corkscrew refers to Turns 8 and 8A on the 11-turn track of WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. Quite arguably one of the most famous turns in all of motorsport.

With two championship titles on the line, stakes are high for the Andretti Autosport stable. The Andretti IndyCar line-up expands to five cars with the return of Conor Daly in the U.S. Air Force car while the 2019 Indy Lights Championship Team remains three-deep and looks forward to watching rookie Oliver Askew claim the driver’s championship.
