Conor Daly, driver of the No.20 Bitnile Ed Carpenter Racing Chevrolet says there is no reason why the team can’t have a great weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course this weekend with the GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis kicking off the Month of May.
Daly goes into his home race off the back of a 19th place finish at Barber Motorsports Park last time out and speaking ahead of this weekend’s event, the Noblesville native commented saying:
The GMR Grand Prix of one of my favorite events in the schedule. I love getting into the Month of May and starting it off on the road course. We were obviously very, very fast there this time last year. We made it into the Fast 6 so we definitely want to do that again, but not be taken out in the first corner this time! I can’t wait to get May started off right, we already had a strong oval test a few weeks ago. All signs point to us being able to have a great weekend and start the Month of May strong!”
Defending GMR Grand Prix of Indianapolis race winner Rinus VeeKay in the No.21 Building Tomorrow Chevrolet is looking for the race this weekend.
The Dutch driver is hoping to make it five Chevrolet race wins from the opening five races of year and the speaking ahead of the race this weekend he said:
“Going back to the Racing Capital of the World is always awesome and starting the Month of May is always a very exciting time. I have a very good feeling! The Indy road course a place where I have had a lot of success. I had my first pole position, first-ever podium and eventually first-ever NTT INDYCAR SERIES win! I am very happy with how the season is progressing, we are only improving and we’re heading into the Indy GP stronger than ever. ECR has been putting in a lot of work and it’s really paying off. It makes me even more eager to defend my race win in the GMR Grand Prix!”
