Marcus Ericsson Nashville Notes

Marcus Ericsson
No. 8 Huski Chocolate Honda

“Practice here in Nashville was hot and toasty but it’s fun to be back here on the streets of Nashville. Some good memories from last year. The session was pretty messy with a lot of red flags and traffic, so we didn’t really get a lot of laps. Interesting with the new green Firestones, they were behaving a bit different than what we are used to.”

The NTT INDYCAR SERIES held practice for the Big Machine Music City Grand Prix in downtown Nashville today. The drivers faced a course similar to last year’s where Chip Ganassi Racing went 1-2 with Marcus Ericsson and Scott Dixon.
