INDIANAPOLIS — Over the course of the last three days, Arrow McLaren revealed the colors of all three NTT INDYCAR Series machines this week. It took place at 10 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
New comer to the team Alexander Rossi was up first. That No. 7 Dallara-Chevrolet looked a lot like the one that Felix Rosenqvist drove last year. The 8-time winner in the series moves over to McLaren after 7 seasons at Andretti Autosport.
On Wednesday, it was Rosenqvist’s turn to unveil his No. 6 Dallara-Chevrolet. This car also had a similar paint scheme with the only difference being the blue on NTT Data being a little bit of a different shade as the Velo one on Rossi’s. The Swede has 1 career win in the series and is operating on a one-year contract extension. He’s coming off of one of his best seasons in the sport a year ago.
Thursday’s final announcement came from Pato O’Ward’s No. 5 Dallara-Chevrolet.
O’Ward has reached victory lane twice in each of the last two seasons and like Rossi, is starting 2023 off with a fresh new contract that was agreed upon on Carb Day last May.
The team also expands to a three-car operation on a full-time basis for this upcoming season and will even add a fourth car for Tony Kanaan for May’s 107th Running of the Indianapolis 500. That car wasn’t unveiled yet.
