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

“I have great memories from Portland a few years ago, so I’m really excited to go back and try to make some more! I really enjoy pushing a race car around Portland International Raceway and it’s the start of the last stretch to close out this championship. We are ready.”

Felix Rosenqvist – No. 7 Vuse Arrow McLaren Chevrolet

“Good to be back on track for the tripleheader, starting with Portland. I think it’s a great little track that I have some good memories from. I think it’ll be a solid weekend for Arrow McLaren SP. We tested there a couple weeks back and we were strong so I think we might have a little bit of an advantage there. It’ll be fun and we are ready to get going again!”

Taylor Kiel, President, Arrow McLaren SP

“We are certainly excited to get back to racing after a couple weeks off. We head out west for three more rounds to close out the championship and it starts at Portland International Raceway. It’s a circuit we were able to test at not too long ago. We had a very productive day then, felt like we learned a lot about the circuit, the car set up, and the tires. Pato and Felix had a great day there so I’m excited to kick off this closing phase of the championship at Portland. I feel like we’re very prepared, that we have a good package and should be ready to get the fourth quarter started. I am very excited, ready to go and ready to get back in the fight; as I know our team is as well.”
