Meyer Shank Racing (MSR) will expand its NTT INDYCAR SERIES program in 2024, signing Felix Rosenqvist to a multiyear agreement with the team.
Rosenqvist, 31, from Sweden, will team with Tom Blomqvist for MSR’s full-season two-car campaign. The team is also growing its program to support a third entry for the 2024 Indianapolis 500 presented by Gainbridge for Helio Castroneves., who also recently joined the MSR ownership group as a minority partner and also will serve as a driver coach and team ambassador.
“I’m super excited to start the next chapter of my INDYCAR career together with MSR,” Rosenqvist said. “This will be a great opportunity for myself and MSR to elevate and get to the next level together. I’m also pretty excited to get to work with my old friend Tom (Blomqvist) again. I’m ready to start working together and getting the next season started.”
Rosenqvist will enter his sixth NTT INDYCAR SERIES season in 2024. He has one victory, in 2020 at Road America with Chip Ganassi Racing. He has won four career NTT P1 Awards, including this season at Texas Motor Speedway with Arrow McLaren.
Next year’s NTT INDYCAR SERIES season will see Ohio-based MSR have a complete reset with an all-new driver lineup.
“We’re very excited to have our 2024 INDYCAR plans finalized and to welcome Felix to the team,” team co-owner Mike Shank said. “Felix has been someone that has been on our radar for quite some time now, and everything lined up this year to work something out with him.
“It’s no secret that we’ve had a difficult season, with some things out of our control and some things in our control. I think we are all looking forward to resetting completely, starting over and getting to work. I think Tom and Felix will work great together and really feed off of each other. We will also have Helio with us at every race to provide his feedback and advice, which will be an added bonus, so I think we’re in for a solid year ahead.”
MSR and the rest of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES field will finish the 2023 season this Sunday, Sept. 10 at the Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca. Blomqvist will drive the No. 60 AutoNation/SiriusXM Honda, while Castroneves will finish his final full series season in the No. 06 AutoNation/SiriusXM Honda.
