We certainly don’t have underestimated the challenge. We knew it would be an extremely difficult challenge. I’ve been here before. I’ve seen some amazing people not racing. So we were certainly very aware of how difficult it was. I want to I would like to apologize and thank our partners who have been fantastic and incredibly helpful throughout this adventure. I also thank the entire IndyCar community who have welcomed us with open arms. From the officials, the managers of the security, all the other teams. »
