Myles Rowe

Note: The Penske Entertainment editorial staff is looking back at the five biggest moments of 2023 in INDY NXT by Firestone in this year-end series, with one installment appearing on the site per day in countdown fashion from Dec. 27-31.

Myles Rowe’s rise through the ranks will lead him to INDY NXT by Firestone in 2024.

Driving for Pabst Racing with Force Indy, Rowe won the USF Pro 2000 championship with five race wins a year after finishing second in USF 2000 -- again with five races -- in 2022.

Now, he graduates to INDY NXT by Firestone and becomes an instant contender and arguably one of the top stories to watch. During the annual Chris Griffis Memorial Test held in October on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course, Rowe was up to speed quickly, posting the third-fastest lap.

With how quickly he is learning the ropes, Rowe can boost INDY NXT by Firestone to another level in 2024 in a fashion similar to the impact Jamie Chadwick has this year. The difference is that Rowe has ascended through the ranks here and is quite familiar with the tracks he will continue to race on.

Will Rowe be a one-and-done in 2024 and advance to an NTT INDYCAR SERIES seat for 2025? He has the talent and speed to make this next season a memorable one.
