Pato O’Ward – No. 5 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet

“I’m really excited to finish out the last pre-season test at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and see what we have for the Indianapolis 500. Once we are done with this test, it means that Barber is next! I can’t wait to get back on the track. I am ready and I know that Arrow McLaren SP is ready too.”

Felix Rosenqvist – No. 7 Vuse Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet

“I am excited to get back to Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I have a lot to learn with Arrow McLaren SP and I’m looking forward to getting back up to speed again. I think the open test is going to be great preparation for the race and it’s important that we get as many laps as possible with the No. 86 Arrow McLaren SP Chevrolet to be prepared for the Month of May.”

Taylor Kiel – President, Arrow McLaren SP

“Arrow McLaren SP is ready to get our final preparations under way for the 2021 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season. I think it will be a great opportunity to not only finish our pre-season testing but to also work on getting Pato, Felix and Juan Pablo up to speed for the Month of May. We have three incredibly talented drivers to work with and I’m excited to see how they work together and make each other better.”
