No. 26 Group One Thousand One Honda Driven By Zach Veach

“I definitely feel we have a lot of momentum on our side after finishing fourth in Long Beach, I honestly can’t wait to be back in the car at Barber and to keep improving. A year ago this weekend I got the chance to compete in my very first IndyCar Race at Barber so it’s going to be nice to be coming back to a track I have a little more experience at than others on the schedule. For me, my main goal is to focus on qualifying, I would really like to start getting higher on the charts for the start of the race. The Group One Thousand One car and crew have been great this year; we’re ready to show that again this weekend!”
