AJ Foyt Racing head to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach this weekend aiming for a better event following a tough opening race at the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg where Conor Daly started the race from 20th place and finished the event in 15th.
Speaking ahead of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, Conor Daly commented by saying:
I always look forward to traveling west for the Long Beach Grand Prix. There is such a great atmosphere all weekend and the track is fantastic. It was the site of my first Indy car street-course event and my first Indy Lights win so it’s always meant a lot to me.
Carlos Munoz started the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg from 11th place and was forced to retire from the race with mechanical issues and was classified in 21st place and speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, he commented by saying:
Long Beach is one of my favorite tracks, and everyone’s favorite tracks, I think. The city is really nice. I always enjoy going there. I’ve had really good results in Long Beach. I’m looking forward to being there with the new ABC Supply Chevy team, the new (Chevy) aero kit. AJ Foyt Racing has been really successful there, so hopefully we start and show what we proved in St. Pete from Practice 1 to the end. The goal is to be competitive and to do one’s best, and together, we can achieve a good result.
