Four-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves who returns to full-time NTT IndyCar Series competition with Meyer Shank Racing for the 2022 season alongside Simon Pagenauud says it is extremely beneficial to be immersed in Meyer Shank Racing across the board in both the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship and the NTT IndyCar Series.
The Brazilian will compete in the Rolex 24 Hours at Daytona with MSR alongside Simon Pagenaud who he raced alongside at Team Penske.
Speaking to Paddock Eye during Monday’s content day, Castroneves said that it has been great to integrate into both teams and that he hopes it will help him and Simon Pagenaud move both teams forward as they embark on a new chapter in their respective careers.
