"I'm excited to get work for the Freedom 100. I got to turn my first laps on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval and it was amazing. We had a good test Monday and I was able to get comfortable with the car. Now, it is all about focusing on Friday and running our best race of the year and hope we can reclaim our points lead. We had two podiums at the INDYCAR Grand Prix and I hope that we can piggyback off of that success for the Freedom 100. This is the biggest race of the year for us and Andretti Autosport has put together great cars for the Freedom 100. On Friday, I know that we will be able to contend for the win."

"I am so excited that it is race week for the Freedom 100. The wait is finally over. It was great to turn laps on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway oval. It's amazing to kick off Indy 500 race weekend with the Freedom 100 on Carb Day. I grew up watching the Indy 500 and I always dreamed of being there. Now, to be able to drive on the track has so much prestige and history is very cool. Coming off my first win Indy Lights, I am more excited than ever to get back to work for our biggest race of the year. We had a really good test day today and we found good speed in car to finish P1 on the time sheets. Andretti Autosport has given me a great car and I can't wait to get to work and contend for the win come Friday. Huge thank you to Andretti Autosport, Palo Alto Networks, CyberArk, SailPoint and Optiv for giving this opportunity. It is a dream come true."

“I'm really excited to be back at the Speedway. Last year, we showed we were really strong on ovals and had really good race pace. Looking to turn around the season. We have had good qualifying results and a few good races, but ready to put it all together. This is the biggest race of the year and we are excited to go for the win.”

"I'm excited to be here at Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the Freedom 100. Our testing went really well and we were able to get a lot of practice in group running. I feel really comfortable in the car and the Andretti Autosport crew put a really good car for me. We will review a few things prior to Thursday's practice then see where we will qualify and and settle into our race and hope to be there at the end on Friday."
