Herta Hopes To Be Crowned Homecoming King at Long Beach

There may be no other driver who looks forward to the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach more than Colton Herta. Not only is it a home race for Herta, who grew up in Santa Clarita, California, but it’s also a place where he’s had some of his strongest performances in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES, including a victory in 2021. “It’s good, but I’ve never had a bad race car here, really,” Herta said. Herta was quick out of the gate during opening practice Friday, running 25 laps and ending up third overall after a quick lap of 1:06.9808. “I’m happy with it,” said Herta, a seven-time winner in the INDYCAR SERIES. The same corner brought an early retirement to Herta’s race in 2019, too.
