Kirkwood Can’t Wait To Start Top-Level Journey with Foyt Team

With open-wheel phenom Kyle Kirkwood using the word “ecstatic” in a social media post at the announcement of his first NTT INDYCAR SERIES ride – “This is pretty much the best moment of my life,” he later said in the media conference call — his new employer should be excited, too. Kirkwood has dominated four consecutive open-wheel classes, including Indy Lights presented by Cooper Tires in the recently completed season, and now brings his infectious and upbeat personality – and talent – to one of INDYCAR’s smallest teams. “I think (RPM) finished fifth or sixth in the championship (the previous season) and missed a couple of races, but I saw what the team wanted to do, and I believed in them,” Kirkwood said. “We ended up winning nine of the 16 races (and won) the championship. 4 car, also a Chevrolet, and still could be a three-car team for some 2022 races. Kirkwood has won 31 of the past 50 races in the Road to Indy program, leading to three consecutive championships. He said such races “aren’t the ones that are super enjoyable.”. Now, Kirkwood has a team with which to pursue that first win.
