ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Once Rinus VeeKay of Ed Carpenter Racing starts his engine and takes the green flag for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg on Sunday, the 20-year-old driver from The Netherlands will clinch the 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES Rookie of the Year Award. “It will be great to get that on my resume – INDYCAR rookie champion,” VeeKay said. “Putting it on pole in my first INDYCAR season is something to be very proud of,” VeeKay said. “Texas was a big, big setback in my career,” VeeKay said. VeeKay believes driving in every race in the same car has been a tremendous asset in his learning experience with the team. “You get to stay in the flow and drive the same car all the time,” VeeKay said. “I’ve had good races, but like all of the rookies, we’ve been a little unlucky. VeeKay hopes securing the rookie award is the start of bigger things to come.
