After a win to kick off the INDY NXT by Firestone program at the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, Danial Frost is looking to be the first two-time winner of the INDY NXT season. Set to battle on the new layout in downtown Detroit, Danial, and his HMD Motorsports outfit will battle the Detroit Grand Prix this weekend, June 2-4.
“I am really looking forward to Detroit and the chance to compete at a new venue,” explained Danial Frost. “We have a strong team at HMD Motorsports, and I think we can gather data in the one and only practice session that will help each other. The first time at a new venue is always difficult, but I am up for the challenge and want to return to the podium’s top step.”
Currently third in the INDY NXT by Firestone championship point standings, Danial is looking to rebound after a disappointing result in Indy less than one month ago.
Frost continued, “Indy did not go the way we had planned. We did a big deep dive into the data and what happened that weekend to learn where we went wrong. I know the team and engineers have put a lot of work into this weekend so to reward them with a win and be the first winner on the new layout is something that I am really pushing for.”
While there is a new venue and a new circuit, it will also be the first double-header race of the 2023 season. Taking on the barrier-lined circuit will provide a lot of obstacles, but nothing that Frost and HMD Motorsports are not prepared to tackle.
The weekend will kick off Friday with the one and only practice session in the early afternoon before qualifying will set the grid for race one and two. The first wheel-to-wheel action will take place on Saturday afternoon with Sunday’s event taking the green flag just prior to the seventh round of the NTT INDYCAR SERIES.
