“I had a great time at the Indy GP. The results did not resemble the strength we brought into the weekend as we completed the first session in P3. This was my second time racing the Indy GP course as I competed there last year in in my first ever USF2000 weekend. In preparation for the race, I spent a hefty amount of time practicing on the Simmetric labs simulator as well as reviewing data and video from last year.” Said Sikes
“As the weekend progressed, we struggled a bit with understeer before perfecting the car for race 3. Unfortunately, a first lap incident ended our weekend. The last race was looking strong as I made my way into the top 10 from my 15th starting position in only 2 corners before my car was hit in the left rear.”
“As always there are takeaways from each event. I learned that small changes are key as the track develops throughout the weekend as well as gaining valuable track time in these cars. I’m really looking forward to my next event, But Unfortunately I can’t officially say whether or not I will be competing next weekend at Lucas Oil Raceway.” Said Sikes
Louis Michael Meyer (Owner of Legacy Autosport) Said “Indy GP was a weekend that luck was just not on our side. Due to unforeseen issues a few of our partners were not able to assist for this event. Luckily, we were able to have the lone number 19 Metalloid Corp car entered with Simon.”
“Every time you are on track is a chance to learn and we were able to add some positive changes to our play book. Indy is a special place for Legacy Autosport. The Meyer family roots run deep here.”
“I would love to have Simon back in one of the USF2000 seats at Lucas oil. We will see what can be put together,” Said Meyer
With the Indy Grind Prix now in the rear-view mirror, sights are set forward to Lucas Oil Raceway for Round 8 Of the USF2000 Road To Indy Presented By Cooper Tires 2021 season. After a win under their belt last year at Lucas Oil, it will be exciting to see what happens on the 0.686 Mile Oval on May 28TH.
