Tyler Gonzalez is returning to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway again this weekend to compete in the season finale of the Toyota GR Cup North America program. As the current championship point leader, the Copeland Motorsports driver is looking to officially be crowned as series champion when the final checkered flag flies later this week.
After a long and hard-fought season, Tyler Gonzalez is ready to close out his GR Cup North America 2023 season. The young Floridian and multi-time race winner comes into the weekend as the championship leader with 244 points and five wins to his credit. The action-packed weekend for the GR Cup will see a pair of wheel-to-wheel races with the addition of the Music City Grand Prix make-up race on Friday morning.
Tyler Gonzalez is familiar with the road course at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and enters the weekend full of confidence.
“After competing at the Speedway in September, I feel like it taught me additional information to help finish this season strong,” Gonzalez explains. “This weekend is all about earning the first-ever Toyota GR Cup North America title, but also finishing the season strong for the team and hopefully adding a few more wins to my resume.”
Looking to add more pole positions and race wins to his 2023 season totals, Gonzalez is ready to close out the final of seven race weekends.
