Armstrong Begins Prep for 2024 With First Oval Test

Marcus Armstrong was back on track Wednesday, just days after signing a multiyear contract to continue with Chip Ganassi Racing in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and clinching the Rookie of the Year Award by 34 points over Juncos Hollinger Racing’s Agustin Canapino. 11 Ridgeline Lubricants Honda, Armstrong completed 180 laps at Texas Motor Speedway to complete the first part of his orientation to oval tracks. “It was quite fast,” Armstrong said of the 1.5-mile banked Texas oval. It was a lot more natural than I anticipated, and I felt at one with the car later in the day. Armstrong: Overall, it was a very positive experience, and I’m very grateful that Dario, Scott, Eric and Blair could help me out throughout the day. Question: How would you assess your first NTT INDYCAR SERIES season?. Armstrong: My favorite race of the year was (the Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear), which was just chaos, survival mode at one point, just like (last weekend’s season-ending Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca). Question: How have you found the lifestyle change while racing in this series?. Armstrong: I would say I get more track time than in other series that I’ve done, like F2 last year. Here, I actually think I’ve done quite a decent amount of laps in the race weekends.
