Quote: Luca Filippi
“We are all very excited to be racing here in Houston. It’s not really a new race, but for the DW12 and IndyCar teams, it feels like a new race. I can say that the Barracuda Racing team is very leveled. We had good preparation for this weekend and our motivation is very high. After the last race in Baltimore with Barracuda Racing, I felt very confident and I think we kept improving our performances. My goal for this weekend is to bring a trophy back home. I know it’s not going to be easy but this is my goal and I’ll do my best to make it happen.”
