ROSSI READY TO RACE TO NEXT LEVEL

March 08, 2018

Alexander Rossi has firmly placed himself as one to watch this upcoming season in the Verizon IndyCar Series.

Momentum is everything in racing and few are rolling into 2018 with more than the 26-year-old Californian, who finished sixth or better in six of the final seven races last year, including a win at Watkins Glen and three podiums.

For that very reason, there’s not just hope. Now, there are expectations.

“We’re very optimistic and we have the expectation of fighting for the championship,” said Rossi, driver of the No. 27 NAPA Auto Parts Honda for Andretti Autosport.

“You can’t just wish that to happen, though. So there’s a lot of work ahead of us. We really don’t know where we’re at quite yet after (preseason testing). We don’t know how much the goal posts have moved, don’t know where we’re at in relation to everyone else, but we think we’ve definitely made steps forward from 2017, which was quite a bit better than 2016. So we have high hopes and hope to be stronger out of the gate in St. Pete.”
