The INDY NXT by Firestone Series made their return to Indianapolis Motor Speedway this past weekend for a one-day race event alongside the NTT INDYCAR SERIES and a pair of NASCAR programs for the annual Brickyard event. Former INDY NXT race winner Danial Frost made his way back into the top-ten this weekend, earning crucial results as the series heads into the final few races of the 2023 season.

After qualifying 12th, Frost was able to pilot his DenJet Marine-sponsored car into seventh, five spots ahead of his starting position. Showing speed in practice, Danial proved his race craft by coming through the field to improve on his qualifying result. Danial was also able to improve upon his most recent result of 11th at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway this past May for the first INDY NXT by Firestone Grand Prix. Earlier this year, Danial Frost claimed the first INDY NXT by Firestone win of the season in St. Petersburg and now looks to make his way back to the podium.

“It feels great to be back in the top-ten,” explains Danial. “We’ve had some bad luck these last few races so this is exactly what we needed to motivate us heading into the last few rounds of the season.”

This is Danial’s best finish since his seventh-place result at Road America as he hopes this propels him into finishing the 2023 season on a high.

Daniel added, “We’re sitting in eighth in championship points and may not be in the running for the title, but I’ve still got the same goal of getting to the top step of the podium and finishing the 2023 season strong.”

Danial Frost will now shift his focus to the last three race weekends of the 2023 INDY NXT by Firestone season.

Races remaining in 2023:
August 26 – INDY NXT By Firestone – World Wide Technology Raceway
September 3 – NDY NXT By Firestone Grand Prix of Portland – Portland International Raceway
September 9 – INDY NXT By Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey Race 1 – WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca
