Plainfield, IL (June 19, 2019) – Dale Coyne Racing driver Santino Ferrucci has been on a roll of late with a run of top-10 finishes and a personal best result. The rookie is hoping to keep that string of performances alive as he enters this weekend’s REV Group Grand Prix presented by AMR at Road America.
Ferrucci has scored four top-10 finishes in the last five races and has a total of five top-ten finishes in nine starts this season. He picked up his best finish of his young NTT IndyCar Series career at the previous round at Texas Motor Speedway two weeks ago, placing fourth on what was only his second career oval race.
This weekend will be the Woodbury, Connecticut native’s first time on the Road America track aboard an Indy car.
“I’m looking forward to going back to Elkhart Lake. I went there a lot as a kid when I was karting, so it will be nice to be racing on the big track in an Indy Car,” shared Ferrucci. “I’m not too sure what to expect heading into the weekend, we didn’t have the opportunity to test at the track, but I’d definitely like to keep the Top 10 finishes going and keep collecting points and completing laps. I have a lot of confidence in our #19 Cly-Del Manufacturing Honda and my crew and I think we can have a good weekend.”
In addition to keeping his top-10 streak alive, Ferrucci will also be looking to maintain and increase his 12-point lead in the Rookie of the Year standings.
Teams will get two practice sessions on Friday, June 21, with qualifying taking place Saturday, June 22 at 3:00pm local time (4pm ET).
Round 10 of the 2019 season will go green on Sunday, June 23 at 11:50am local time (12:50pm ET) and will be broadcast live on NBC. All practice sessions and qualifying will be streamed live on the NBC Sports Gold App with qualifying also being broadcast on tape delay on NBCSN from 5:00pm ET.
