Looking ahead to the race he said:
“It’s been such a long break without an NTT INDYCAR SERIES race, so I can’t wait to get going this weekend, and on a brand new track for INDYCAR nonetheless. I’m excited to see what the Gainbridge team can do at Nashville and hopefully set the tone this weekend to finish our year strong.
Alexander Rossi in the No.27 AutoNation NAPA Auto Parts Honda is also excited about this weekend’s race sqying:
Nashville has become one of the most exciting cities in the nation the past couple of years so it’s only fitting for INDYCAR to race there. It’s a new track and new city for us and there has been a huge amount of effort from everyone involved to get us there. I can’t wait to get into town and get the AutoNation Honda on track.”
The Mayor of HinchTown James Hinchcliffe hopes that the No.29 ShiftToGreen Honda rolls off well on Friday as the Canadian hopes to close out a difficult season with some strong results.
Speaking ahead of the race he said:
“I think everyone has been looking forward to Nashville since the day it was announced! Add in that we’ve been off for so long, and everyone is super excited to get to the track. We all love learning new circuits and this one definitely has some cool features. Let’s get to Friday and hope we roll off strong for a good weekend in the Capstone Honda.”
Ryan Hunter-Reay in the No.28 DHL Honda is hoping for a strong result in Nashville this weekend saying:
The highly anticipated inaugural Music City Grand Prix is finally here and we’re ready to get after it. This is a tremendous opportunity for the NTT INDYCAR SERIES as a whole as well as its teams and partners. We’ll start the weekend off with a visit to the DHL Nashville Distribution Center and then we’ll take to the streets of Nashville. I look forward to representing DHL and AutoNation in what will be a hot and packed Music City Grand Prix race weekend
