Harding Steinbrenner Racing Looking for a Strong Finish at the Detroit Grand Prix
The NTT IndyCar Series season continues this weekend with the Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear at Belle Isle Park. Colton Herta will pilot the #88 GESS Capstone Honda along the streets of Detroit in this season’s only doubleheader race weekend.
This is the first time the 19-year-old will compete along the 2.35-mile street circuit in the middle of the 932-acre island in the Detroit River.
“I’m excited to get back in the #88 GESS Capstone Honda so soon after the 103rd Indianapolis 500,” said Colton Herta. “It’s nice to have the back-to-back races to get focused right away for the Detroit Grand Prix this weekend. We’ve been getting faster as the season progresses, so hopefully we have no problem getting up to speed as this will be a new track for me.”
“The #88 GESS Capstone Honda really needs to get back on track in a positive fashion this weekend at the Detroit Grand Prix,” said team president, Brian Barnhart. “We had a very unfortunate result in the 103rd Indianapolis 500 on Sunday, but we instantly have to focus forward and put all attention on the doubleheader weekend in Detroit followed quickly by the DXC Technology 600 at Texas Motor Speedway. Our goal is to do everything we can to finish the doubleheader weekend at Detroit as strongly as we can. We certainly have the pace to do so.”
Practice for the Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear begins Friday, May 31, at 10:55 a.m. ET on NBC Sports Gold. Live race coverage of race one will be on NBC this Saturday at 3:00 p.m. ET with live coverage of race two on NBC on Sunday at 3:00 pm. ET.
