Siegel staying with HMD for second Indy NXT season

Nolan Siegel will return for his second season of IndyCar training with the HMD Motorsports Indy NXT team. The Californian teenager earned NXT’s Rookie of the Year honors in 2023, but more importantly, he demonstrated immense talent while winning two races, standing on five podiums, and leading the championship during the first half of the season.

With his continuation at HMD, Siegel becomes an instant title favorite for the upcoming 14-race season.

“I am anxious and excited to get back to work with HMD Motorsports,” Siegel said. “My rookie year was a good one, and we set out to do what we wanted to do but now I am fully focused on the championship. I will have the same engineer and same crew this season providing consistency that will hopefully help in a championship run.”


Having won back-to-back NXT titles with Linus Lundqvist and Christian Rasmussen, HMD Motorsports GM Mike Maurini hopes to complete a Hat Trick with Siegel or one of the team’s other young chargers.

“Nolan is a great talent and has a bright future in motorsports,” he said. “He has proven this by not only winning in Indy NXT but topping the podium in different racing platforms around the world. We look forward to watching his continued growth and helping him reach his goals of the NTT IndyCar Series.”
