      "I’m pumped to be racing again at IMS. It’s been two years since I have even been at the track but historically I’ve done well there and so has Andretti Autosport. After St. Pete, I believe we have some good momentum and I am hoping we can carry that into this weekend."

          "Indianapolis is always a special weekend as the team and the home of racing is here. I am looking forward to racing here this weekend. We are expecting to score many points this weekend and hopefully close the points deficit."

              "I have a feeling the Andretti Steinbrenner will be strong this weekend at the GP due to the past results Andretti has had here. We weren't too bad here either in Indy Pro 2000 last year and having that past track knowledge will help. I'm looking forward to bouncing back after St. Pete and hopefully getting to Victory Lane."

                  "I can't wait to be back at the Indy GP. I love this track. I got my first Indy Lights pole and win here in 2019, and I’ll be shooting to be at the front again this year. We’ve had a slow start to the year, but things are ramping up and I’m feeling great."
