“I’ve been waiting for the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg for a while! It’s a venue that I really enjoy going to, not only because the track is cool but because the whole city is very enjoyable as well. I’m really looking forward to closing out the season with a strong result. I want to thank everyone involved who made my first full season in INDYCAR an incredible one: everyone at the Arrow McLaren SP, Arrow Electronics, McLaren, INDYCAR, Chevrolet, all of our other amazing partners, and most importantly – the fans.”

“I appreciate all the support Arrow McLaren SP has given me through this difficult time. I would like to thank Dr. Billows and the INDYCAR Medical Team, as well as Dr. Collins and the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program, for their advice and care, which allowed me to take the time I needed to fully recover and prepare for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES finale. I’m looking forward to a strong finish to the season in St. Pete.”

Taylor Kiel
Managing Director, Arrow McLaren SP

“Here we are, back in St. Pete to conclude a challenging, yet very satisfying, 2020 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. When we were here in March, we had the goal of laying a solid foundation on which to build sustainable success. Now, I look back in admiration of the entire ARROW McLaren SP team for their tireless efforts to turn that goal into a reality.

Our team owners, Arrow Electronics, McLaren, and many of our other partners have given us such great support throughout a year in which many of them were dealing with their own pandemic related hurdles, but their resolve to help us progress never wavered. Also, the effort and passion that Team Chevy has put forth has given us reliability, power, and confidence to compete at the front, week in and week out.

There is still a lot to compete for this weekend and our work is not done. We are aiming to win and bring home our strongest points finish of the year, while also closing out the season on a high note for Oliver. I have no doubt we can achieve these goals and am confident that we can leave St. Pete with continued optimism toward the future.”
