The INDY NXT by Firestone Grand Prix of Monterey at Laguna Seca brought the 2023 INDY NXT season and our Andretti sponsorship to a close. ECCO is proud to have been part of the Andretti Autosport family sponsoring Jamie Chadwick in her transition into Indy Car racing.
Jamie started the race near the back of the field, but was able to move her way up four positions by the end of the race. Chadwick commented, “It was a challenging race, but it was nice to be in the thick of it at the end. We struggled a little bit for pace initially, but it came back to us at the end of the race. It was nice to have some battles out there and finish the year still on a relative high. It was a big learning year, but I’ve enjoyed it a lot. Thanks to everyone and looking forward to, hopefully, being back next year.”
Jamie Chadwick’s had an awesome season posting this on her facebook site; “A challenging end to the year at an incredibly physical track but still holding my head high and proud of the progress we’ve made in our rookie season. A huge thank you to Andretti Autosport for everything this year and to everyone else for their support. I’ve loved driving the #28 car this year and will be working hard to come back stronger.”
