Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Electronics Honda will start tonight’s Bommarito Automotive Group 500 at Gateway Motorsports from eighth place on the grid.
Thr Mayor of HinchTown will be hoping to bounce back from a tough race in Pocono last time out.
Speaking ahead of the race this weekend he said:
A bit of a tough day here at Gateway (Motorsports Park). The track here drives a lot different than a year ago with the aero kit the way it is. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to test here, and after today, we’re really wishing that we had. I think we had decent one-lap pace, but obviously with qualifying being canceled, we start on points. It is what it is. The conditions tomorrow are going to be very different, a lot hotter. I think a little bit of an unknown for everybody, so we’ll just put our heads down, try to come up with a good solution for the changing conditions and try to move the Arrow Electronics car forward tomorrow.”
