No 93 Harrison Contracting Company Acura NSX GT3 Evo 22 DRIVER QUOTES:
“I’m excited to be back in our No. 93 Harrison Contracting Acura NSX GT3 Evo22 on a track where I’ve had a lot of success in the past couple of years. It’s a track that holds a lot of memories for me, having won my first race with HPD Racing on the Acura platform at Indy, and then the following year clinching our championship here with the same car, so I’m thrilled to be racing here again. I’m also looking forward to my first IMSA sprint race with Kyle, and getting back to my Racers Edge Motorsports with WTRAndretti family, while building some momentum to finish strong this season.”
“I’m very excited to return to the wheel of the No. 93 Harrison Contracting Acura NSX GT3 Evo22 and Racers Edge Motorsports with WTRAndretti. It’s a great group of people and they’ve certainly gotten a good handle on this race car, and the working relationship between Jim (Pattin) and Dave (Wagener) on the box has proven to be a fantastic duo. I have complete faith in the crew working on the car that they’ll give us the best Acura that we could ask for. Then it’s on Ashton and me to deliver our best performance. Indy is a great track, and a fun race track, with a combination of high speed and low speed which I think will make for an exciting race. 17 cars in the GTD class is a big field, a competitive one, and it’s going to take everything we’ve got and the best performance from everyone to get a good result. I’m looking forward to the weekend and grateful for the opportunity to be back with this team again.”
