With Alex Palou remaining at Chip Ganassi Racing, Arrow McLaren made the bold decision to sign David Malukas to a multi-year contract to drive one of it’s IndyCars.
“I can’t wait to race in papaya next season,” Malukas said. “Arrow McLaren has been a threat to the top contenders all season long, and I’m excited join the team and see what their Chevrolets can do. Pato (O’Ward) and Alexander (Rossi) both know what it takes to win, so it will be fun racing alongside them and learning from them, as well.”
The signing pairs Malukas with Alexander Rossi and Pato O’Ward as he assumes the seat which had been held by Felix Rosenqvist who is headed to Meyer Shank Racing.
“We’ve been extremely impressed with how quickly David has gotten up to speed in the NTT INDYCAR SERIES,” Arrow McLaren Racing Director Gavin Ward said. “At 21, he’s already one of the strongest oval racers in the field, and his competitiveness on road and street courses has been steadily improving. That speed, combined with an excellent attitude and work ethic, makes us thrilled to have him join the team.”
