Zack Meyer Seeks Success At Inaugural Indy Lights Grand Prix Of Indianapolis

After equaling his season-high finish of eighth in the feature race at the Legacy Indy Lights 100 two weeks ago, Zack Meyer is aiming to move on and move up the order at the inaugural Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course. Meyer is ready to put his #2 TMR/DAMIS PARTNERS III/Innisfil Indy Karting/Xtreme Coil car out on track and bring home a great finishing position in both races of the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires weekend.

Meyer, 21, from Innisfil, Ont., had a full day of testing yesterday ahead of official practice commencing the race weekend today. With his first impression of the newly revised circuit, Meyer believes he stands a chance to make his mark at the birthplace of IndyCar racing. “The track is really fast, but in order to be successful here you have to have the car setup almost perfectly,” Meyer commented. “We were a little further off in the morning test session, but in the afternoon we were right there with everyone else. There are some things we could have done differently with the setup that could have allowed us to challenge for P3.”

After finishing testing in seventh, just 0.25 seconds off of third place, Meyer’s confidence is high heading into practice. “The competition was close in testing,” said Meyer. “From P3 to P9 the gap was only half of a second. It’s a little frustrating to look at the times, see yourself seventh, and then realize you were only .25 seconds out of third. Those last couple of tenths are always the hardest, but we learned a lot this afternoon about the car and the tires that I think will really help us in practice and qualifying.”

This weekend’s event is another doubleheader weekend in 2014 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires season. The sole Canadian racing in Indy Lights will have two 45-minute practice sessions, qualifying, the 40-minute sprint race, and the 60-minute feature race to tackle this weekend. The Grand Prix of Indianapolis is slated to take the green flag at 5:30 p.m. EDT on Friday for the sprint race followed by the feature race rolling off at 1:30 p.m. EDT on Saturday. The television broadcast of the doubleheader weekend will air on NBC Sports Network on a tape-delayed basis on a to be announced date sometime during the week of May 19.
