Andretti Autosport head to the Iowa Speedway this weekend for the Iowa Corn 300 having won seven out of nine Verizon IndyCar Series races here and they will be hoping that at least one of their four drivers will be in contention to make it eight wins from ten starts this year.
Indianapolis 500 winner Alexander Rossi who leads the 2016 Sunoco Rookie of the year standings says that the the oval where the team test last week is pretty crazy. It has been a pretty crazy schedule for the American too as two weeks he raced at the Road America circuit before heading across the pond to work with Manor Racing at the Austrian Grand Prix so he is really building up the air miles.
In 2015, Ryan Hunter Reay won in Iowa in the No.28 DHL Honda ahead of Josef Newgarden and Sage Karam so he will be hoping that he will be in a position to challenge for victory here this season too.
Carlos Munoz goes into this weekend’s race as the leading Andretti Autosport Honda driver in the Verizon IndyCar Series points standings. The Colombian who picked up his first ever Verizon P1 Award at Texas Motor Speedway last month is currently in seventh in the standings on 262 points.
Munoz will be hoping that he can build on this momentum from Texas for this weekend’s race in Iowa.
Marco Andretti in the No.27 UFD/Snapple Honda heads into the weekend having started the Kohler Grand Prix last time out in 21st place coming through the field to finish the race in 12th place.
