Rising star Nolan Siegel looks to add to his successful 2023 INDY NXT by Firestone campaign as the returning Rookie of the Year with HMD Motorsports for the 2024 season.
The “California Kid,” Siegel carries his laid-back personality everywhere but on track. He returns to the series after a superb rookie season with two race wins, six top-five finishes and nine top-10 finishes in 2023. Adding to his race wins in INDY NXT, Siegel also raced sports cars and won the Asian Le Mans LMP2, IMSA GT3 Indy 8 Hour and IMSA Petit Le Mans six-hour races adding to his diversified skill.
Outside of racing, Siegel is expected to graduate his senior year in high school in June 2024 and also likes to snowboard and play the electric guitar. He is a fan of Bay Area sports teams, especially the San Francisco 49ers, Golden State Warriors and San Jose Sharks. Following his California brand, Siegel’s favorite band is Los Angeles-based Red-Hot Chili Peppers.
